My Zocdoc appointment didn’t show up on the doctor’s office system. I have to redo all the paperwork and waited around 20 min. I feel Dr. Chan was a bit rush, he spent like 5 minuets with me and then send me room.

Dr. Chan was friendly and capable. Put me at ease right away. The payment terms for the office was strange though. They list as in-network for my Aetna plan but still charged me for the full visit. Now, do I have to try and get reimbursed?

Dr. Chan is a very personable and calm communicator, explained everything very clearly and calmly. Open to questions and left the conversation open until I completely understood all the options and medical explanation, which is genuinely appreciated.
Dr Chan was nice enough however after blood work, there was no follow through or recommendation of treatment. When I called a week later for my results, there was not even a discussion of a follow up. When I asked what my results meant, the person on the phone was unable to help me or provide guidance for next steps. I came in with an issue and left with blood work results which I will have to re-do at another doctor who actually wants to help patients.
Dr Chan was very professional, thorough, and friendly. He took his time to explain everything to me as well as potential treatments.
Office was packed the day of my appointment. I thought I would have to wait for at least 1 hour. The nurse drew my blood, scanned my stomach with the ultrasound machine, and got in and out of the room to see Dr. Chan in less than 10 minutes. That's the type of appointments I would want every time.
I liked that he took the time to discuss several options that I have available, it was very informative.

Odd office set up, but everyone friendly, including Dr. chan.
Dr. Chan is very thorough on explaining the procedures and results that needed to be done, he was seen by my husband for fertility consult. The first time there's about 15 minutes wait time, the second appointment took about 30 mins wait before he was called. But the office was clean and organized and there's a television to watch news while waiting.
My visits are always professional and prompt. Dr. Chan is extremely kind and gentle. I trust him tremendously
Nice, not too nice but nice.
Very professional and knowledgeable, I will definitively recommend Dr Chan.
Dr. Chan was very quick to give me an answer to the problem my son is having. He told me what was wrong and how to fix it. He took the time to explain why it was happening and what we should do about it. I'm very grateful. Dr Chan has a very calm and pleasant bedside manner. We did not have to wait too long to see him. His office in Forest Hills was very nice. His nurse Shakia was also very sweet.
Dr. Chan was straight to the point and his staff were professional and ran operations swiftly.
my visit with Dr. Chan was great... he took his time and was very informative. I highly recommend him.
Thorough. Explains everything
I was not having any pain until he put the tube into my urethra. He scratched my urethra. I am in pain constantly and extremely sharp pain every time I pee. I can't sleep due to the pain. Had I known that it would be this painful, I wouldn't have let him do that. I am losing sleep. I can't control pee either. I feel like I want to pee but I cant but then I urinated at random times. My prostate is in pain as well. I am really going crazy due to this pain. I kept taking tylenol but it didn't help. He should have warned me, but he didn't. He didnt give me any pain medication either. So inconsiderate and unsympathetic.
He is very polite and knowledgeable about my condition. He takes excellent care of me

Days go by, no one calls about test results. I could be dead. Other than that.... Great.
Follow up appointment...Dr. Chan was good as usual
Dr. Chan is an outstanding medical provider. Though the wait time was a bit long (I did have a later in day appointment time), once I was in the room with Dr. Chan he really took the time to ask and understand my issues. After that, he thoroughly explained the possible reasons for my problem and went through all the treatment options. I asked a lot of questions and he patiently answered each and every one - I never felt rushed, which I feel is definitely not the norm these days! He gave me a say in which treatment option I wished to choose, although he did also gave his recommendation. We came to a happy consensus. Overall I cannot recommend Dr. Chan more highly!!
I like Dr Chan very much. He is very caring, friendly and keeps we well informed about my condition

I was hesitant about seeing a male doctor, just because I feel more comfortable seeing a female doctor, but Dr. Chan was very professional and reviewed all of the stuff I have and explained his hypothesis to me.

I had a very nice informative consultation with Dr Chan. The atmosphere was very professional and the assistants were very attentive.
very friendly and informative and knowledgeable and cares about you and your wellbeing
hi I think the doctor was excellent and his bedside manners and his way of explaining things and his hopeful attitude great experience
The doctor was personable and thorough. The bathroom for patient use was not clean. The receptionist called to schedule me an appointment elsewhere for testing without first consulting me about my schedule, then acted annoyed that I was not able to accept the midday appointments that she was trying to push on me.
I was pleased with him overall and found him to be very friendly, well educated and he took the time to ask about my history/results and asked if I had any questions. Most doctors don't take the time to do this.
Dr. Chan was excellent. He was very direct and clear regarding my condition. The only con regarding my visit is the front end staff, who in my opnion was unprofessional.
The doctor himself is great no complaints what's so ever there. However trying to get results is a different story. I've called for three months after my appointment and have called multiple times only to be told the doctor will call you back and never does. I've paid now where's my results!!
He is very good in explaining matters that has to be done and tries to find alternatives to situations.
Dr. Chan is a caring professional who reviews all information given to him and asks the right questions. I was referred to Winthrop Hospital and underwent ambulatory surgery the next evening once my hypertension was normalized. He is an excellent doctor who explains everything to you in lay men terms. His team is also very professional.
I was favorably impressed by the friendliness of the office staff, the fact that they do ultrasound in office without your having to visit an outside diagnostic site, and the friendliness and professionalism of Dr. Chan.

My fourth dr. And the only one that gave me answers and options
The doctor was very patient in explaining the diagnosis, provided two options and his own recommendation. Went to see him for a second opinion and walked out of the office with a peace of mind. Will be going back to him again.
Seemed to be a busy day, I waited over an hour, but worth the professional care. Totally recommend.
Very pleasant experience.
As usual it was excellent. Dr. Chan is a true professional. Wish all my Drs. were as competent.
Very understanding and kind, with exemplary staff.
Excellent... answered all the questions and was very thorough in explanations. I would recomend and definitely use again.
I was very impressed with Dr. Chan and his office staff at my first visit earlier today. Minimal wait, courteous staff that was well prepared, and they used the info I provided to ZocDoc so I didn't have to repeat all that. Unlike an assembly line approach I experienced with another urologist, Dr. Chan listened well to my concerns in the context of my overall health hx, and took time to clearly explain where the problems may lie, his plan to determine dx, and possible tx options. I was helped by his staff in arranging a diagnostic visit at another location afterwards.
Easy to talk to very professional
Very professional and welcoming. excellent physician thorough too takes appropriate amount of time with patient does not rush and listens
Knowledgeable, took his time to explain everything - definitely will go back if needed in the future.
Dr. Chan was very friendly and seemed knowledgable.

Dr Sherman Chan, was very friendly & very knowledgeable, and know exactly how to help me out with my problem. A+ recommend him to everyone
He's an awesome doctor. He made me feel comfortable and explained everything to me. I'm so happy I found him.
Didn't know what to expect, but other then not knowing exactly where he was located (not listed on building directory) it was an ok visit
Excellent bed side manners very informative, made me feel comfortable.
The doctor explained everything very patiently, answered all my questions and made me feel that I am in good hands. Also the nurse did good job working with the doctor, I did't have to wait long
Dr. Chan qas very thorough. He was knowledable about my past medical conditions and very patient and friendly.
Clean office and friendly receptionists. You don't get the attitude that they give you (in most other places) when you ask why you have been waiting for so long. The nurse/assistant that called me into the room was very mechanic and cold though. It was my first visit for consultation and he took me in and told me he will check my bladder with machine, give me a cup for pee test and draw my blood before doctor sees me. It gave me that in-and-out factory style feel however when I said I want to see doctor first he was immediately ok with it. The doctor took his time to explain things and seemed knowledgable. The biggest downside was the almost an hour wait time. The receptionist said it's not usual so I will give them the benefit of the doubt. Overall happy.
Very straight forward, cut and dry exactly the way a doctor should be.
A highly competent professional with true empathy for his patient.
The office was very clean and beautifully decorated. The nurses were kind to my elderly mother and the doctor was very nice and thorough. He answered all my questions and didnt seem bothered to do what I asked. I would go there for myself.
Dr. Chan himself is highly recommended amongst other doctor's in his field. However, his office is extremely unknowledgable and ignorant. So much so that they led me to get my procedure else where.
Dr. Chan was great! He is a true professional and extremely knowledgeable in his field! He put my concerns to rest and made me feel comfortable. He is excellent!
This guy is awesome !!!!!
The Dr. Is very knowledgeable in his area. The waiting time it's worthy.
the whole staff and doc were so polite and comforting . very very good
It was just what I wanted.
Very Professional and explained every step of procedure
He is a very good doctor. I didn't wait too long. They helped me right away. The building is very clean and comfortable. I am very satisfied with the visit to the doctor.
Excellent, professional, pleasant experience. Very classy and genuine doctor....easy to communicate with, he was very thorough and made me feel very comfortable. Would highly recommend.
Objective and good.
He is a patient md and he actually listens to all your concerns even if its minor and he is a the best md I visited in 8 years unlike others who tells you your problem instead of asking. I'm certainly recomrnending him to everyone I know
Extremely knowledgable when it came to educating me on the potential treatments for my consultation. Will definatley be seeing again in a few weeks.
Liked him very much. This was my first visit & hope all future visits go as well.
Dr. Chan is extremely knowledgeable, he answered all of my questions and he was very patient; A true professional which is rare among physicians. I highly recommend him.
I completed various forms online since I was led to believe that zocdoc will send to them to the doctor's office,but this did not happen. Also,this is one of these offices which borrowed their modus operandi from the airlines.They obviously overbook patients which results in a very long wait.When this was pointed out to one of the members of the staff ,her answer was:our doctors have a great compassion for the patients,so they never refuse anybody(sic) Some people would interpret this statement as indicative of this employee's loyalty,I call it an example of the unmitigated gall and the assumption that everybody is an idiot and believes anything he hears.Obviously,this employee did not like my comment that the overbooking represents the concern about the wallets,rather than about the patients. There was only one positive outcome of my visit.I often wondered how is it possible for a busy,established physician to have so many(sometimes 6-8) slots available on ZocDoc just one day prior to the desired appointment.Now I know. Before I retired I practised medicine for over 40 years and it was most unusual for my patient to wait longer than 15 minutes beyond the appointed time. I suppose that the reason might have been that I lacked compassion ,such an admirable quality,which one encounters so often among your clients.Or perhaps they ,a little too enthusiastically adopted the famous statement made by Michael Douglas in the movie "The Wallstreet"- "greed is good."
He is great. I recommend him to anybody
My visit was excellent! He was very thorough, and explained everything that he was going to do. He also answered all of my questions. He is a very nice doctor.
He was very professional and able to explain really well what I need to know about the cause of the symtom what needs to be done. staff is very friendly. will recommend Dr. Chan to my friends.
I would definitely recommend him for future references! He got straight to the point and he did a wonderful job explaining the procedure. Thank you Dr. Chan!
I was so happy about how fast I was seen. The doctor answered all of my questions and was very friendly.
very helpful adress my concerns

Excellent, Dr Chan took his time and explained everything, took my questions and covered them very well, left me feeling that I Definitely made the right session to make him my primary.
Dr. Chan was attentive and, most importantly, not dismissive or condescending. It was a pleasure dealing with such a thorough professional and I scheduled a follow-up with Dr. Chan.
