Dr Chan is amazing, he was very professional yet friendly. I would highly recommend his services.
He is professional and helpful.
He's a very nice doctor. However, he talks a bit too fast and not enough caring
Dr Chan was very professional and helpful.
Very efficient, quick to answer questions and concerns. Was in and out of his office in 5 minutes and he completely fixed the issue with my ear. Sent me home with a prescription for antibiotics and scheduled an appointment for a follow-up.
He was very polite and very nice.
NO WAITING TIME AT ALL!
Very professional and efficient. Make sure you make an appointment before you go and then you don't need to wait for a while. The assistants are very friendly and nice! Dr. Edward definitely highlighted the whole procedure. He is very professional and friendly! Overall, I love this place, and would highly recommend to my friends if they need something!!!
Dr Edwin Chan is very thorough and spends time to explain your issue and what he will do to resolve that issue. Dr Chan is very courteous and friendly. He knows what he is doing. Excellent Doctor. I would highly recommend him to my family and friends. I have 100% trust in him.
It was awesome.... He was precise and direct with my questions.... Great service
I went here based on relatively online review and the fact that it opens during weekends. However they do not honor appt schedule. Pretty much first come first serve. We arrived on time for our appt but Waited for 1.5 hours and the dr only saw us for less than 10min, including the time with his assistant to set up next around of appt. Front desk is not friendly at all. When she asked us for pcp info and when I provided the last name she was not even willing to check any info. She was multitasking and not really listening to me when I found the info for her. She acted as if we owe her money. Definitely not with an attitude to help.
Doctor and staff not good. There is no professional behavior!
The staff was courteous and professional. The wait was less than 15 minutes. Dr. Chan patiently reviewed and explained his diagnosis, and answered all questions with clarity.
In one word " GREAT"
I had an appointment i showed up 30 minutes early and i waited an hour over my appointment time to see the doctor this is not acceptable by any standards. After waiting over an hour and 30 minutes. He did not check my breathing with a stethoscope i said i thought i had wheezing and breathing issues he basically said i had a sinus infection after doing no tests and standing by the door. The entire visit with the actual doctor was no more then 1 minute he then left and saw the next patient. I was very upset over the visit and will never return. This makes me upset because my previous visits with him were great.
He was very nice, he got my history, told me my problems and recommended me to see the doctors i needed to treat my other problems which needed attention.
I was a little disappointed i had to wait to see the doctor considering i had a appointment time but the overall experience was good.
I loved our visit to his office. It was a good experience because he was explaining details thoroughly and he was trustworthy.
Dr. Chan is the man! Great overall knowledge, professionalism, bedside manner, the works. I highly recommend him!
He insisted that I didn't have tissue in my ear and that it was badly infected, when I knew the tissue broke off from my past ear infection. He claimed to be a professional, but I insisted that he try to remove it. Lo and behold a big piece of tissue came out!!!
He was great, very kind and gentle. Handled my problem with ease and I left feeling much better. Thank you!
Very good beside manner and patience to listen to my question and answer my questions.
Dr. Chan wasn't really willing to spend time in listening to your chief complaints or telling you what's going about the conditions. He did the exam and then just prescribed the meds. To me, it's pretty confusing.
Rightly understood the problem and treated accordingly.
Awesome and very good at explaining everything
He is an excellent doctor on all fronts. He had treated me in the past as well for multiple issues and always diagnosed correctly and applied treatments that were spot on even after other doctors had not done so. He was the first doctor that recommended an allergy treatment for a chronic allergy that no previous doctor ever mentioned to me and it was 100% effective.
Professional , informative , with a lovely human touch.
Very professional and great service
We will return Excellent Service Staff was friendly
Dr. Chan was very personable and helpful. Thoroughly explained treatment and follow-up. Office staff efficient and friendly, also followed up by phone; very short wait time. Highly recommended.
He is amazing, right on point with the task.
Dr. Edwin Chan was excellent; however I wasn't very satisfied with his staff. The girl that attended me seemed very unprofessional at one point. She was talking to maybe her friend in another language I did not understand and they were pulling each other as though they were playing or the other girl had something to say to her alone. Nothing wrong with that; but I don't think it is acceptable in an office atmosphere. Then she had me going to a room and the doctor was in another room. So they moved me again. From the nurse room to a room to another room. Finally, I was able to see the doctor..... I must say that I got very good service with him. He was very clear on the treatment I was supposed to receive and very clear on what I was supposed to do and follow. He let me know what was wrong and recommended a nutrition change.
Great doctor and friendly staff.
Dismissive and rude. Doesn't tell you what to expect.
I Was very sastified with his service. He was clear and explain carefully everything! Very good experience!
It was a great experience!
Very professional. Office staff is very cordial and pleasant. Highly recommended.
Dr. Chan is awesome. I took my three year old son to see him. Dr. Chan explained all procedures in details and made my son feel comfortable. I highly recommend this doctor.
Doctor is great! Wish he spent more time in the room. One of the receptionists was really nasty when I arrived,speaking under her breathe in her language. Receptionist Jennifer is great!
I really liked Dr. Chan, I felt he really was passionate about taking care of his patients and very thorough! Excellent care!!
If you have other options, use them! I was not happy at all with my appointment. I was rushed in and he barely examined me and had me on my way. I was supposed to go for a follow up but never did.
I think Dr Chan is an excellent doctor. However , his staff is very unorganized. I waited over an hour to be seen and stated if they didn't have appts today they should have not made me come in today. They need to be more friendly when dealing with patients.
Overall a great experience, very helpful and informative and took care of my ear problem immediately... Wait time a little long so just take note
I know my son is well taken care of when I visit Dr Chan.When ever my son ear start acting up,he would tell me he don't want to go to any other Doctor....he only like Dr Chan because when he cleans his ear it does not hurt.So much Thank Doc!
Very knowledge, courteous professional. Would definitely return.
Doctor was good. Waiting room was filthy, with hair balls, papers, plastic cups and even rest of snacks on the floor. Even a lady was eating noodle soup and making noises while eating. The smell of the food makes me very nauseous. I even have pictures to corroborate this.
Dr. Chan is very professional and knowledgeable specialist. My visit was very informative and pleasant. I will definitely recommend Dr. Chan to other people.
I like his office in manhattan, its very efficient and professional.
he is awesome
Dr. Chan, is the best doctor ever. Highly recommended if you have any sinus problems like I did. Very professional, he cares about you, listens to what you have to say. Friendly staff!!! HE IS JUST AWESOME!!!!!!!
Dr Chan is always polite and pleasant. He is efficient and I always feel confident that he is giving good advice. I have been to see him several times and have complete confidence in him.
It was great, comfortable experience.

Very nice Dr & very helpful staff.
Dr. Chan is very professional and patient. I would definitely recommend him.
Dr. Chan uses latest technology in recording, viewing, prescribing, diagnosing and treating his patients. I left his clinic with a written diagnosis, follow-up and treatment.
Very professional and friendly. Staff was really nice.
He's a good doctor, very thorough. My only problem was the wait was 30 minutes. My actual visit was 10 minutes.
Too many people in the waiting room and they didn't care about patients' complaints about the wait. Too many appointments and copays to get results. No one explained anything behind the first test they ran on me. No follow up phone call to give me results or ask me to come in for results. Wouldn't recommend.
Dr . Edwin Chan was very knowledgeable about my situation, he diagnosed And treated my problem right away. I was very pleased with his treatment :)
Overall for first time visit the appointment was good
I did not have to wait more than a few minutes to see Dr. Chan. His office was clean, and his staff very professional.
He was friendly and informative. He helped me understand what was causing the issues I was having and gave me helpful suggestions to avoid having the same issues in the future.
I find Dr: Chan to be very knowledgeable and friendly. I will be telling my my family and friends about him.
Great doctor!! Very professional and friendly!
The reception room was dark and cold. The exam room was dirty. Many of the tools have not been cleaned and showed signs of dirt build up along with materials unknown. I was very worried about the cleanliness of the tools. One item in particular had massive build up of some white and black material that looked like toothpaste caked on it. It was disgusting. I don't think I will be returning. The doctor himself was good with a no nonsense approach. He knew what to do and wanted to get it done. Just wish the tools and office were regularly cleaned.
Great doctor who addressed my questions and tended to my ears. Helpful and solved my problem. Highly recommend him.
My visit was absolutely great! I am so happy that I found Dr. Chan.
First off it was cash only which i didnt get but thats ok then their systems were down so had to wait 30 min to be seen. He was an ok doctor not too compassionate and seemed like in a rush. i had a cough for 3 weeks he prescribed steroids for to make it get better soon (its been a week and no improvement). i wouldnt go back
He is very patient.
Dr. Chan just kept prescribing me anti-biotic without doing any test to found out if my sinusitis is caused by virus or bacterium, and which type of virus or bacterium. I was getting a bit better until the medicine stopped working. I ended up having the sinusitis for 6 months until treated by another ENT doctor. The room is not very clean by the way.
It was a good experience
Dr. Chan , is a proffesional and a great MD. I took many rounds of antibiotics from PCP went to him once, he gave me diff meds and they fixed me right up. Would highly reccomend him to anyone who needs an ENT. He isnt the type to have you in the office for 30min and 2 min of actual patient talk time. He will answer all questions you have and will take the time.
I loved my visit with Dr. Edwin! Super nice and very informative. He answered all my questions and made sure I understood everything before I left. His staff was super friendly and courteous and they worked fast and diligently. Loved it!
Awesome doctor! :)
First time there. The appt was actually for my mother who is 81 years old. He surprised me when he responded to my mother in Spanish! He's super young looking but what a great doctor. If i ever need an ENT, I'm going to him! (Hope they take BCBS) :)
My appointment was for 3:30 but I had some free time earlier than that and his office accommodated me. I was seen in less than 10 mins. The doctor was very through and helped me with my ear infection. I felt very comfortable and pleased with his bedside manner. I would definitely recommend this doctor to anyone!
Dr Chan and his stuff were great, didn't have to wait too long , overall friendly front desk stuff and the doctor was patient , listen to my concerns and answer all my questions .
Swift diagnosis, definite course of action, very pleased.
Great doctor. Very attentive and explained things in detail.
Wish all of my medical appointments were as thorough, professional and fast. The on line registration was also extremely helpful in getting me in and out in a quicker time frame.
I made the appointment for my husband and he thought the doctor was great. The ladies at the front desk didn't check to see where the appointment came from and I noticed they were making my husband fill out all the forms again, even though we had already submitted them online. He had a 10:45a appointment and waited about 25 minutes before he was called.
Very pleasant office staff and doctor.
The staff were polite and professional, he took the time to answer my questions, and did an excellent job with diagnosing and listenign to my concerns.
True...explaination..to how to resolve...the problem my kid had.thank u.
Very courteous, professional, and efficient. Highly recommended.
He was very knowledgeable, personable and straight to the point. Would definitely recommend!
Dr. Chan is a very good professional, but I don't think he took 100% thorough care of me. Also, the woman who does the hearing tests is not professional! She actually blamed me for the malfunction of the machine as if I had something to do with it not working. I will not be returning.
Dr Chan is great I went to him with a severe case of hoariness and throat problems and he treated me over a 6month time great, My voice came back and I as a singer just have to thank him for giving me a second chance in my music career. he is the only doctor I trust with my throat
My visit with Dr. Chan was a routine follow up about a surgical procedure performed 2 weeks earlier. I was examined and was treated well by the Doctor, and this I appreciate in a medical professional. The staff seemed as anxious as I was to get things done in a rush. I assume its because I am not much of a conversationalist with them, specially "Louise". Great Doctor, would highly recommend to anyone seeking help for my similar ailment.
very pleasant; he actually takes the time to explain to you your condition. Very gentle with children
We are very thankful to him in our time of need. He is simply amazing.
Will definitely use again
The staff was courteous and prompt with my information intake. Dr. Chan demonstrated a high level of compassion and knowledge regarding my thyroid nodule, and future operation procedure.
Solved all my problems and extremely courteous. Great doc!
Had a helpful doctors visit with Dr. Chan who was informative and addressed my issue.
Very friendly and easy going.Made my visit painless and fast. Great health professional !
Unpleasant receptionist! Zarcastic and rude!
Very good. Thorough
I needed a second opinion about a sinus infection that I incurred from a tooth infection. My previous ENT doctor put me on antibiotics for almost 3 months. Did a balloon procedure that did not work. Put me on more antibiotics. After seeing Dr. Chan today he was surprised as to why I have been on antibiotics for a total of 4 months. He immediately told me to stop the antibiotics because this may cause resistance. And if I would really needed an antiobiotic in the future, then it wouldn't work. I am very happy and glad that I saw Dr. Chan today. He was very knowledgable, very thorough in his examination and explanation. He took the time to listen to my horrible ordeal with the other ENT. I would highly recommend Dr. Chan to friends, relatives, co workers and even to strangers.
He takes his time to listen and explain whatever concerns you have.
Very nice, answered all of my probably silly questions :) Never felt rushed. Would definitely recommend!
Knowledgeable, cordial and pleasant.
Dr.Chan and his front desk staff were very friendly and courteous. Truly professional!
very professional,very good doctor. i will recommended to all my friends and family
Very professional and pleasent, took his time and gave a thorough exam, answered all my questions about the diagnosis and the treatment very precisely. I would definitely recommend him
Definitely coming back if I'll be needing his professional help.
He made me feel like the solution to my condition was easily at hand.
He was very thorough and friendly. I felt like he really listened to me and wanted to help me figure out the cause of my ailment. What a refreshing change.
Dr. Chan was very easy going and nice. He had no problem answering any of my questions and did not rush to get me out of there like other doctors sometimes do. I would recommend Dr. Chan to friends and relatives.
He's very professional and caring. He even gave me samples. I never got any samples from other doctors that I saw.The staff confirmed my appointment very quickly(within 1 hour). I'm very happy with the Dr. and the service.
Although you may have to wait a little, just like a good restaurant you want to see it busy. He is worth the wait. Great doctor and I can understand why he's so busy.
Dr. Edwin Chan is a very nice doctor well know what he is doing . Thank you.
Dr. Chan is fantastic!
Dr. Chan is very personable and makes the patient feel comfortable and heard. I would definitely recommend him.
Dr. Chan is a great doctor, he answers in a clear way all the question asked.he care about his patient.I highly recomend him.
He is a great doctor.
The wait was long, but the office was clean, bright, organized; the receptionists were friendly and competent (although at one point she audibly declared to myself AS WELL AS others within ear shot that I "my insurance expired!"), and Dr. Chan was very affable, professional, up-to-date, and seemed quite competent.
EXCELLENT, THE BEST I HAVE EVER GONE TO HANDS DOWN
good visit to the point comeing back soon
I loved Dr. Chan. He listened and answered all my questions and concerns, without talking down to me. Also, it was the least uncomfortable naso-endoscopy I've ever had.
Very nice, I was very nervous about my visit, he was able to calm me and clear my ears without any issues.
Great all around service. First visit took around 25 minutes. Second visit about 5 minutes. A very courteous and patient Doctor. I highly recommend.
very professional customer friendly. the visit was through and comprehensive. well done!
I thought Dr. Chan explained my situation very well and took enough time to thoroughly explain my options and what he thought the appropriate next steps were. His office staff was very friendly and very professional. It was an excellent experience overall and I will definitely return there for follow-up visits.
kind, caring, non-judgemental and knowledgeable.
Excellent care, excellent staff, excellent electronic appointment schedjling and follow up
Thorough and professional
I thought he was one of the best doctors I have seen in a very long time. Very compassionate and answered all my questions. I didn't have to wait long at all and I have not experienced this quality in a very long time!!! Im really happy with Dr. Chan and so relieved to have found him!
very efficient, very communicative, comprehensive patient care, dotted the i's and crossed the t's, listened and paid attention to detail
Very impressive.I thanked him for being on Zoc Doc.
First time in the office. Was able to see him as soon as I filled out the paperwork. Great bedside manner. Would definitely recommend. In fact, I already have.
Great doctor, good bedside manner. Knowledgeable.
Dr. Chan is the best doctor I've ever been to. His professional demeanor, intelligence, and personality put me at ease. His staff and co-workers also provide a pleasant atmosphere for the patient.
He is very good,honest and smart
thorough and very nice.
My mother was very pleased with the care and attention Dr. Chan provided for her.
He is very thorough but wastes no time! He is pleasant, coherent and professional. I have been to him a few times and every time he makes me feel better and at ease.
Amazing experience, highly reccomend!
One of most thorough, professional exams I've had. Felt comfortable asking questions & easily understandable explanations. did not feel rushed during visit.
Dr. Chan was better than I expected. I set up an appointment with him for a second opinion and his service was excellent. I am convinced to ditch my previous ENT Doctor and probably going to visit Dr. Chan from now on.
Very nice professional
Very impressed with his professionalism and kindness. He was thorough and very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend him to friends and family.
Dr. Chan was efficient, personable and thorough.
I put that I had to wait between 30-60 minutes which I did but it was my own fault because I was really late for my appointment and so I had to wait for the clients that where there on time! This is the second time I have been to Dr. Chan and the second time he was excellent! He takes you in, checks you out and gives you a diagnosis - he is quick, efficient and to the point with an excellent bedside manner. I went in feeling anxious and came out feeling great. I would recommend him to anyone!
Awesome ENT doctor! I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Chan was very professional, patient and, perhaps most importantly, focused and knowledgeable. He was very direct and provided me with important knowledge about my condition. It was definitely time well-spent. Highly recommended.
He's good but the appointment was 10:15 and I waited until 11:00 to see him and even after i entered the waiting room, I waited another 15 minutes while they were trying to figure out the new computer system. He saw me for half an hour but most of the time was spent trying to figure out the e-prescription. I understand the need to figure out new technology just not on my time.
i recomend this doctor.
he was a good doctor and nice.
Dr. Chan was a pleasure to work with. He immediately understood my symptoms and was able to diagnosis my issue with ease. I would definitely recommend him to my friends and family
Extremely Knowledgeable and easy to talk to. I had severe breathing problems and he was able to help me. Very professional and effective. His staff is really sociable and amicable. Highly recommended...
I made my appointment online at 4am when I realized that my ear infection was getting worse despite my general practioner's prescription. I was seen right away by Dr. Chan who was extremely pleasant and thorough. He looked beyond the ears into my sinuses and throat and deep cleaned my ears so that the new drops can take effect.
i have gone to him once and he was very thorough
Everything went very well.
I thought he did a phenomenal job and analysis, getting the core of the issue right away, and overall friendly, down to earth.
I went late but I was still seen. I was in and out really quickly and got all my prescriptions. There's no more pain!
Great doctor visit. Attentive, responsive, and was able to address my problem and correct it.
Edwin Chan is the best ear specialist i ever had.
Went to three doctors with poor diagnoses - Dr. Chan was very personable, gave me a great diagnosis - I was feeling better within the day. Would definitely recommend.
A wonderful Dr... Dr. Chan is very polite, honest , takes his time with the patients, and explains his DX. I have worked in the medical feild around 30 yrs. I know a good Dr. when I see one.
Dr Chan explained well, did the procedure gently and painlessly, gave med samples to use. The receptionist was rude, repeating requests several times loudly, while taking on the phone in a personal call. Receptionist Made comments that made me feel that my insurance was not really what they wanted.
I could not recommend this Socor more! He is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, & thorough. His office staff is helpful & the office is very nice.
Dr Chan answered all of my concerns to the best of my satisfaction. He is very knowledgeable and polite. His office staff is very polite and helpful.
Very nice receptionist and Dr. Chan was great. Very informative and nice. Highly recommended.
Professional, courteous, attentive. My wait was longer than expected but that was the only issue with Dr Chan. I doubt that he regularly keeps patients waiting as it seems there is a constant flow. Dr. Chan spent a good deal of time with me, much more than many other doctors I've been to.
Great doctor! He is extremely knowledgeable and attentive to my needs. What a pleasure to work with!
I WILL RECOMMEND MY FAMILY MEMBERS.
When I came into Dr. Chan's office a had a lot of worries about my health problems. He treated me with respect and gave solutions for my problem. I am going back to him for follow up.
Friendly and knowledgeable. A bit un-gentle with the endoscope, but no big deal.
Friendly, THOROUGH, knowledgeable. Everything you'd want in a doctor.
A great visit. He was efficient, good-natured, and, I hope, effective!
The office staff was extremely kind and accomodating. I made my appointment as a new patient through ZocDoc the night before, and even though Doctor Chan had a full schedule of appointments, he fit me in for appointment that morning, and took the time to listen to my symptoms and answer all my questions.
Very knowledgeable. Took time with me to examine and explain everything and answer my questions. Great office as well. Clean and well organized. Dr. Chan was also able to heal my ailment. Would highly recommend to friends and people I know who are looking for a ENT doctor.
Dr. Chan has an excellent bedside manner, he is friendly, professional and has a good sense of humor. He is extremely personable.
