The following are comments on the first edition (2004)
…The good doctor has given much of her time to training and educating and this book is meant to help parents optimize the use of doctors. In fact this is just the sort of book that should share pride of place next to the first aid box. Dr Tan used to train medical personnel for a living. Here she puts that very same experience to print. It wouldn’t surprise me if even doctors find this book a helpful reference source - Book review by Yahya M Iskandar Sarawak Tribune (6 March 2006)
It is indeed timely to receive your book as my eldest daughter is giving birth to her first child in a few months time. The book will certainly be very useful to her. My heartiest congratulations to you for your noble contribution towards the medical field. YB Datuk Lee Kim Shin, Assistant Minister of Infrastructure, Development and Communications ,
Well done, I am sure it will benefit the doctors and other medical professionals and the parents as well. Please keep it up. You have done a lot for the medical profession and the public in many of your endeavors. I will forward a copy to our Health Minister.
It is indeed a very informative and useful book. I definitely will find time to read it and share with others as well. YB Lily Yong Lee Lee, Dewan Undangan Negeri
….. a valuable source of health and medical references – sincerest appreciation and gratitude for gift. YABhg Toh Puan Datuk Patinggi Hajah Norkiah, Astana,
Congratulations on the second edition of your book. Personally I wish to recommend all newly weds and young parents to have a copy! I have known Dr Tan since my youngest daughter Farah was a few years old. She was the doctor responsible for detecting and curing her of ITP. I cherish all that she had done. My family is forever grateful to a very caring, hardworking and dedicated doctor, our family doctor. This book is the proof of her credibility, total dedication and much experience. Happy reading! YB Datuk Hajjah Rohani bte Hj Abdul Karim, Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Agriculture and Agrobased Industries,
