Dr. Chan is an exemplary doctor. She's kind, considerate, and knowledgeable. She is easy to talk to and spends plenty of time listening to me talk about any issues I'm experiencing -- and helping to point me in the right direction.I can't say enough nice things about her and her co-workers, Serena and Louis -- they're all wonderful.

Dr Chan always takes her time during our appointments and answers all my questions. I love that she also knows what my insurance will cover so I'm never worried that she's going to order tests that aren't covered. I also lovethat she is both my PCP and OB/GYN. She really knows the full picture of my health and approaches medicine holistically in that manner rather than viewing patients' problems as one off conditions to medicate. Dr Chan is the best physician I've had since living in NYC for 10 years. Thanks for being amazing Dr C!

I've seen Dr. Chan a few times now and have always received great care! Yesterday was my first obgyn check-up with her and she gave me the whole run-down of the procedure to make me feel more at ease which wasgreatly appreciated. Not only that, but Dr. Chan also instructed on when to conduct self breast exams for preventative care. A truly caring and wonderful doctor.

It was my 1st time seeing Dr Chan and as I waited to see her as her reputation exceeded other practitioners in my area. My visit was smooth from checking in to having her office assistant Luis take my vitals whichwas painless from drawing blood to detailed professionalism. Once visiting w/ Dr Chan she was thoroughly interested in getting to know me and my family and my medical history. The entire experience was professional and kind from her staff top to bottom.

Dr. Chan is truly a kind, compassionate and competent doctor who really cares about her patients. I have followed her from multiple office settings since I started seeing her over 10 years ago and I can vouch that she is stillthe same excellent doctor I met from day 1! I have referred so many friends and family to her over the years I can't even count anymore and all have been just as impressed and grateful as I to have found her! Her staff is also equally caring, friendly and such a pleasure compared to so many other doctors' offices nowadays. Luckily she has always taken my insurance but I swear I would try to follow her anywhere!

I was really pleased with Dr. Chan. She talked me through basic Medicare and how it works and what it had to offer for low-income seniors and how the processed worked. We started right then with some basic test and referralsof where to go for other tests that they recommended. I was anxious about everything and she really calmed me down with this introductory appointment.
