These appointments are shorter than your initial consultation. Please write down any questions you have for the doctor prior to the visit to help you remember them. If you have new films and/or additional reports of tests, please bring them.
Dr. Tang will not refill a medication initially prescribed by other physicians and does not dispense any narcotic prescriptions unless you are an established patient that has recently undergone surgery or are scheduled for surgery. For refills, have your pharmacy fax a request to (510) 495-1440 and allow 48 hours for processing. Since refills are not provided over the weekend, please plan accordingly.
