Not coming back. Went twice, had to pay right away, long wait, referred to specialist and then had to pay again, bad communication with specialists and doctor. Waste of time.

It is my first annual physical exam in the U.S. So, both Dr. Chan and her assistant (nurse) has treated me well. They are very professional and nice, especially when I felt dizzy after the blood drive after 8-hour fasting.

The office was very unhygienic, which is not something you want in a doctor’s office. Dr. Chan herself had a terrible bedside manner and was very unprofessional. I’ve actually never had a doctor be so rude to me before. It was shocking.

It doesn't matter what time of the day I have my appointment, there is always a wait time for Dr. Chan. My most recent visit, I waited over an hour which is unacceptable. Even when they call your name from thewaiting room, you are proceeded to go to another room where you wait some more. It's unacceptable and ridiculous. You'll see the doctor bounce between room to room seeing multiple patients at once. It's clear that the doctor is overbooked, if you don't mind wasting your time waiting, sure see this doctor. Otherwise, book with another doctor who doesn't overbook and only says 3 words to you before jumping off to another patient.

I went in as a walk-in, so I had a modest wait time, which I thought was fair because other people had appointments. The doctor's assistant was kind and curteous. Dr. Chan was thorough and efficient with me. I've been seeingher for about 10 years now and I'm happy to have such a great internist.

Office assistants are very unprofessional. They are not listening not care about patient's concerns/questions. Their manners make me feel uncomfortable for the entire appointment and follow-up conversation. Dr. Chan is okay, not veryfriendly type of person. I can sort of understand that, maybe it's just a personality, and I was their for a solution not making friend, so that's fine. Talking about knowledgeable perspective, I don't see how outstanding the doctor if. Primary care doctor is not irreplaceable in my opinion, so I would not re-visit or recommend to other people.

I have been a patient of Dr. Chan for 10 years. She is a wonderful woman and even better doctor. However, the ladies at the front desk are awful. They are impolite, insensitive and curt. They weren't just rude to mebut everyone so I give them that. At least they are consistent. Compared to when I first started coming here, the wait time have increased.

Been going Dr. Chan for years now. Thank god, its only an annual physical and have to see her once a year. Regardless if you have an appt or not, you will still have to wait. Every single time .. itsa wait. I waited 25 minutes after my appt time, then was seen by the nurse. However, after the nurse left. I waited another 25-30 minutes to be seen by Dr. Chan sitting in the office. They seem to be overbooked at certain times. Other than the wait time, shes concise and straight to the point.

THIS WOMAN IS A SOCIOPATH AND A SCAMMER WHO ONLY CARES ABOUT RUNNING TESTS ON HER MACHINES TO MAKE MONEY FROM YOUR INSURANCE. SHE ALSO WILL TAUNT YOU, REFUSE TO PRESCRIBE YOU AN ANTIBIOTIC OINTMENT FOR THE BURN YOU CAME INWITH, AND WILL GENERALLY TREAT YOU LIKE GARBAGE. ABSOLUTELY VILE. SHE SHOULD BE EXPOSED.

Really a great and professional. I ended up having an Pneumonia. She wasn't my primary but needed her in a pinch and she was great. She personally called the next day to follow up on my visit to the ER andto make sure I was okay. I would recommend her to anyone who lives or works in the neighborhood.

Bill came in the mail for a large amount, for tests I did not request for so I called the office to dispute. This lead to days of arguing and leaving messages, which finally one day the staff directed my callto the doctor, and she stood her ground by insisting on the patient to be responsible for tests SHE requested. Needless to say the doctor was belligerent and extremely inconsiderate and showed no compassion. I will never recommend this insensitive doctor to anyone.
