Everyone at the office is great. I recommend them to my friends and family. Doc Chan takes the time to answer all of your questions thoughtfully. She is the best GP and Gyno I have ever had. They communicate all info clearly through the online patient portal. Also, I have a bit of a fear of getting blood drawn. They are always super nice about it.

Because of recent health issues I have had to visit with Dr. Chan several times over the past few months. Yet each time she spends as much time as necessary to completely go over all of my concerns and answer any questions I may have. Highly recommended.

Even though I was just going in for a follow up visit for an EKG Dr. Chan spent quite a long time with me going over my lab results and going over my concerns. She even did research into a medication for one of my other health issues and was able to find something to help me with it. She is very thorough and quite concerned with the well being of her patients.

Dr Chan was friendly and considerate of my issues. I felt like she really listened to me and made me feel like any decisions about my health were ultimately my own decision to make. My exam didn't begin til about a half hr after my appointment time but I think mostly this may have been due to an insurance issue and the fact I got in about 5 mins late myself. I am happy to have found a new primary care physician who takes my insurance!

I have finally found a doctor in NYC I love! Every other experience with physicians here has been awful. The doctors seem in a hurry to get me out of the office and don't take time to really talk to me, and the office staff have been disinterested at best and outright rude at worse. So I was blown away by the care I received at Dr. Chan's office. The office staff and nurse were amazing and very friendly, and Dr. Chan took lots of time to sit with me and go over everything in my chart and address any and all concerns. And she was so kind and personable I felt incredibly comfortable. I will absolutely be back and hope to keep her as my PCP for a very long time.

Dr. Chan was my primary care doctor for several months, but recently I found it necessary to change my PCP to a different doctor. I visited her when I was quite sick -- in fact, the sickest I had ever felt in my entire life. She ran some basic tests, but never followed up with me with the results even after I called and asked for them. She never followed up with me even though I still felt extremely ill, and I didn't feel comfortable going back to her after that point. Several doctors visits later (with other doctors) it was discovered that I had a very bad infection that was wreaking havoc on my body. It is a bit unnerving that I was so sick and that she never made an effort to tell me my initial test results or follow up with a continued course of action to find out what was wrong with me.

I would refer Dr. Chan to my family and friends. In New York City, it's not common to find a Primary Care Physician who is generous with their time. Dr. Chan really listens to your health concerns and sincerely cares for her patients by taking the time to discuss best treatment options for you. She is very kind, knowledgable, and professional. Her staff are very professional, efficient, and congenial. I hope to keep her as my PCP for a long time!

Teresa is extremely personable, and an excellent listener. She seemed genuinely concerned about the health issues I've been experiencing, and was very interested in hearing my personal insights on them. It's such a breath of fresh air to see Teresa, who will take as much time with you as you need, after seeing so many doctors that rush through an entire appointment. I hope to never see another doctor again -- Teresa is perfect!
