“Last year I found out I had a parotid gland tumor. I was seeing an ENT in Castro Valley. We had made all the arrangements for surgery and believe me I was scared. It was to be a 5-hour surgery and I would come home with drain tubes and a big scar from my ear down my neck. Fortunately I found out this surgeon was not in-network with my insurance. Dr. Van Tassel was then recommended to me and I asked my Cardiologist his opinion. I am so glad I did. Dr. Van Tassel performed my surgery and I did not come home with drain tubes. The scar is undetectable. I found Dr. Van Tassel to be very intelligent, professional and funny. I would highly recommend him and I will never go to anyone else. His office staff are always polite.”
