Excellent care and office responsiveness
Very informative! Teresa is great at talking you through procedures.
Dr. Chan has a great bedside manner. Her staff members are super friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend her as a primary care doctor.
Dr. Chan is tremendously friendly, professional, and informed. Her concern for the well-being of the patient is evident and sincere. I recommend her to all of my friends and family.
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.
I love Dr. Chan! I have known her for many years now and consider her more than my doctor - she is a friend. She truly cares for her patients and we have shared moments of laughter and tears. She is a blessing for me and my family.
La Dra Teresa y su equipo son excelentes profesionales que ademas de hacer evaluacion profunda y comprometida del paciente, son muy amables y respetuosos
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.
Dr. Chan was extremely friendly and made me feel very comfortable during my first visit. I will definitely be going back to her in the future!
I really like Dr. Chan. She is kind and knowledgeable, and very thorough.
She is the best primary care physician I ever met. Patient, sincere, interested, kind and easy to talk to. I'm never rushed. I love my doc!
I had my first physical and she was excellent and very thorough, the wait was minimal and the nurses were great as well.
She was very thorough with her examinations, explained what was going to be done step by step and the purpose of each exam. Results were posted on the patient portal for easy access. Finally found a Dr. I felt very comfortable talking to.
Very personable and careful.
Dr. Chan is very caring and really takes the time to get to know you. Excellent practice.
Everyone at the office made me feel so welcomed! Dr. Chan is an amazingly kind and intelligent doctor. I look forward to her being my primary care physician.
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 and her staff are wonderful! The whole office was extremely professional, warm and friendly. Everyone made an effort to make my appointment as comfortable as possible. There is a bit of a wait at times, but worth it.
She's the best doctor I've seen yet
Extremely personable and thorough.
A male middle-aged nurse was really fishy, inappropriate and disgusting! He asked for my credit card as a proof! Older peoples place! Very unfriendly,tiny room,disgusting! They share patients info each other,terrible!
I felt very comfortable at my appointment. Dr. Teresa Chan put me at ease and was able to answer all my questions.
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 is very professional and she was very thorough during the consultation. The location was clean and pleasant and the staff very professional as well. I am glad to have Dr. Chan as my primary doctor.
just the best.
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.
Excellent as always.
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!
I usually hate going to the doctor but now that she is my doctor I am always looking forward to go. She immediately finds the solution for a problem. The entire crew is great and they take care of you right away. :-)
Dr. Chan is absolutely lovely. She spent a whole bunch of time with me just chatting and she answered any questions that I had with cheer. Her assistants are very inviting as well. I'm very happy to have found her office.
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!
We need more professionals like Teresa Chan in the Lower east side.
Dr. Chan is hands down the best physician I've ever had! She is caring, friendly, and personable! I cannot rave about her enough!
Dr. Chan was so incredibly helpful, and was extremely personable. She answered all of my questions thoroughly, and brought a tremendous level of understanding to the table. I feel incredibly lucky to have found a doctor as great as she!
She was very thorough and gave good advice
She was very personable and took the time to really talk to me about my issues that I was seeing her about. This may be why my wait time was a little longer than expected, because she takes time to be with her patients. Really wonderful experience!
Always professional thorough and caring
I'm always amazed at her care and attention - so grateful to have found her as a PCP.
Dr. Chan and her staff are very attentive and super caring.
Today was the most comfortable experience I have ever had at the doctor's office. They took their time getting to know who I am and made sure that all of my questions were answered. Everyone who worked there was very professional. I am glad I chose this location. CG
Best PCP in the area by far.
Short wait time, Dr Chan sat with me and reviewed everything on my health form. I havn't had a physical in years, so she had my blood drawn and explained everything we should test for. She is also a obgyn so I'm going back for another appt. She also gave me a referral for a mammogram and suggested getting it done prior to next appointment so we can review together...
Dr. Chan is the best!
Very thorough and knowledgable doctor. Offers services that she knows are covered within your insurance. Very pleasant and helps patients feel at ease.
Dr Chan is a Excellent Dr. She us very patient and understanding. I highly recommend this Dr. For your Medical needs. Also I can say Dr Chan has great insight. Thank you!!
as always professional and thorough
Best doctor I've seen in a long time. Took the time to get to know me, and treated me with dignity.
She and all her staff were very attentive, helpful and friendly. They explained all of the results from my annual checkup. I highly recommend their office and already have! I will be sticking with her for a long time.
Very understanding and patient. Dr Chan is one if the most compassionate Drs I know. I say this because I too have worked in the medical field.
Dr. Chan is extremely caring and thorough with all of her patients. 1. Cleanliness- The office is extremely clean and welcoming 2. She takes her time to ask you for symptoms and information to not make you feel rush like other offices. 3. She remembers her patients! 4. I have followed her from her previous doctor office, she is a must!
Super friendly, and so comfortable - she really listens to you and makes you feel like you are in very good care!
The staff was very warm and friendly! I felt very comfortable.
I think she's great.
All my visits with Dr. Theresa Chan were great! She is very knowledgeable and incredibly kind. She seemed genuinely interested in the health issues I have and took a lot of time to hear all of my concerns. She is the best doctor I've ever seen! The staff is very friendly and her office is very clean. I highly recommend Dr. Chan!!!
She's very thorough and takes the time to listen to your concerns.
Exelent best i ever had
Very friendly doctor and staff. I felt comfortable and taken care of. Dr. Chan was responsive to all of my requests/concerns and provided a thorough annual physical. I'm glad I chose her as my PCP!
Very helpful, good professional manner and place is clean. Yes I will recommend to other person.
Dr. Chan and her staff were super nice and thorough. The office was clean, comfortable, professional, and well equipped. The only complaint is that Dr. Chan was hard to reach after my appointment when I called regarding test results and never did return my calls. Her nurse, Serena however did. So, for me (given that I am in fairly good health) that wasn't such a big deal. Overall, I was pleased and would recommend to others.
She was very kind, patient and honest. It was a small office so I was seen right away. The location of the office was less than desirable and next time I would take a cab rather than walk there from the nearest subway stop.
i am very pleased with dr. chan and her staff
Dr. Chan and her staff are professional, personable, and gracious
Dr. Teresa and her team are wonderful humans. Very grateful to be tested by them.
I felt very comfortable with Dr. Chan and her team. The office was quiet and I didn't wait long at all. I definitely recommend Dr. Chan to anyone for their Primary Care Physician. I don't usually enjoy going to see the doctor, but she made me feel like I'm being well taken care of!
Excellently run office/team (both polite and professional)... Dr Chan was affable, present to my needs, and precise in her perspective. I have been on both sides of the health-care fence ( a practicing RN for a couple of decades and a patient for more than a few years) and would not hesitate to recommend this MD and her practice.
awesome, will recommend to friends.
The billing was confusing/incorrect on the first try.
Dr. Chan Is personable, detailed, professional, attentive, thorough.I find her staff pleasant, the office very clean. In all I will continue to see DR, Chan
Dr. Chan is great! She is always so sweet and very knowledgeable. She takes time to explain things in depth. With her new office, the staff are so much nicer. I highly recommend her!
Dr. Chan is one of the BEST doctors in New York. She is so caring and very easy to talk to about anything. Her support team, Serina and Matt (he's so cute!) are amazing. She's has been my doctor for several years now and truly has her patients in mind when it comes to their health. I recommend her without hesitation. If you are in need of a PCP, please give her a try - I promise, it would be one of the smartest decisions you'll ever make.
Yet another great experience with Dr. Chan! Also, I had the flu last week and they were able to fit me in for a quick check up even though they were booked! I really appreciated that :)
Very attentive and thorough. The entire staff here is wonderful.
Fantastic Doctor. This was my first visit for a checkup and Dr Chan and her team were through, informative, listened with patience and were nice while being super professional. Couldn't ask for more.
She's great. Everyone in the office is really nice.Took the time to explain everything on my blood work. Felt like I wasn't rushed and able to talk about all my concerns and options.
Best experience I've ever had with a doctor! And her staff were great as well. Dr. Chan was very knowledgeable and took the time to educate me about my health. Highly recommend.
Our first meeting was great, she was very friendly and open to all the questions that I had. I didn't feel rushed and I didn't have to wait a long time to speak with her.
Wonderful experience. She provided more information about my health, past and present, than I had been expecting to receive. I didn't feel like I was being rushed at all which means a lot to me. It is a family run practice so the nurse and receptionist also share the same friendly personality as the doctor.
She is a fantastic doctor. Very knowledgable and friendly. Highly recommend her.
Dr. Chan was super nice and caring. Staff was very helpful and friendly as well!
Doctor Chan and her staff were incredible. They made me feel very comfortable and took time to answer any questions I had. They are a very tech savvy office and very professional. I've had a little bit of bad luck with Docs since moving to NY so I am especially happy to find this practice.
Everyone is always helpful and very nice. Everyone at 260 Broadway gets a A++!!!! Ebony
I felt very comfortable the entire time and taken care of! Her staff were cordial and friendly, and treat you like a guest. Dr Chan was extremely personably and open; her manner was direct without being intimidating or patronizing. The procedures were quick but thorough. The office is less than a year old, sunny and well-appointed. I appreciate the nice use of tech touches like taking a photo of me for their files and the online health portal that you can sign up for to check on your test results. My first visit was all-around a very pleasant experience and I recommend highly.
Loved her! She was a great listener and addressed all my concerns. Also, very knowledgeable. Her staff is very friendly and helpful as well.
Dr. Chan was friendly and answered any questions I had about my health. She was also very thorough. I will be recommending my friends to go to her. The staff was also great.
Friendly, very professional, felt I was listened to.
First visit with Teresa was great. She was attentative to all questions about your medical history and related them to current ailments. Very nice and professional.
I showed up 20 minutes late to my appointment and they still managed to see me right away. Dr. Chan is super friendly and so is her staff. I just moved to a new area so finding a doctor right off the bat was terrific.
She was great, very respectful, and provided me with all the services I needed. Definitely coming back!
Great doctor tucked away near LES/Chinatown. Has a capable staff, super clean space and does not rush.
She is very thorough and cares. Also in tune with mind/body which I liked. I was there almost an hour for my first physical, she is very detailed
The whole visit was very smooth and pleasant. I was a new patient but each staff member made me feel like I had already been there and were very friendly. Dr. Chan was very clear on communicating everything she was going to do, and seemed genuinely interested in knowing my story.
Really excellent visit. Dr. Chan explained all of the different tests she was running - which has rarely happened when I've seen other PCPs - and was so pleasant! Everyone in the office was professional and kind.
Dr. Chan was great
Very detail oriented and really listens to her patients. I did not feel at all rushed.
Dr. Chan is a great Dr. very easy to talk to.
My faith has been restored in Doctors! Dr. Chan is beyond wonderful. She took time to listen to me and get to know who I was as a person and as a patient. Her staff were friendly and well trained. I have not been treated with such respect and caring in a medical facility in a very long time. I would recommend her to EVERYONE! Actually I will be!
amazing doctor. attentive and caring!
Theresa is great, very personable and professional
I am so happy I found Dr. Chan! Such an amazing doctor. The entire staff is amazing and friendly. Truly the best!
It was so refreshing meeting such a caring Doctor, who actually takes the time to know her patients. Incredibly patient and very easy to talk to. The staff was also very pleasant.
All of the staff were extremely friendly and personable. Dr Chan was extremely professional and I was made to feel at complete ease through the whole process. I would recommend Dr Chan to anyone.
I liked my visit with Dr. Chan so much that I was compelled to write this review right after I left her office. She is very thorough with her exam and took a good long time to listen to my concerns and answer all my questions. I will definitely use Dr. Chan as my primary physician from here on out (and I've been looking for a primary physician for ever!).
The Staff was courteous, friendly, warm, inviting, cordial...I can't say enough good things about them! I was treated with respect and thoughtfulness, and Dr. Chan exceeded ALL my expectations. She was attentive, focused, friendly, and outgoing. I am extremely happy that what was originally a random decision turned out to be so right! Dr. Chan is awesome and her staff is wonderfully engaged. Keep up the great work!
My first visit with Dr. Chan was great and I will absolutely recommend her to my friends. I went for an ”annual” physical (admittedly my first in a few years) and was immediately impressed by the attentiveness of the amazing office staff. Dr. Chan was as pleasant to talk to as she was thorough: she spent a lot of time answering my questions, discussing my general health, and explaining all of the tests that would be run to ensure that I have a clean bill of health. I'm definitely keeping her as my PCP.
Dr Chan was great to see as I needed a new doctor from recently moving to the city. All staff members were very friendly and professional. Dr Chan made me feel very comfortable during my visit and gave thorough answers to all my questions. Follow up results were timely and Dr Chan does a great job explaining and interpreting any testing results. I definitely recommend seeing her for any primary care or general consultations! She is well versed all around.
Good, slightly above average, nothing exceptional.
Dr. Chan was so warm and friendly. She made me feel comfortable talking about my concerns and was very thorough. I will definitely see her again.
Thoroughly professional and focused . . . much appreciated!
She was excellent and empathetic. Great doctor.
The office staff, which are the first line of contacts in any office were very friendly and personable. When I got there(easiest place to find...ever) I filled out the paper work and was seen right at my appointment time. Dr. Chan was very friendly and knowledgeable and addressed my issues promptly and efficiently. I hope to build a great relationship with her and her staff.
The office itself may not look very fancy but Dr. Chan was great. She was very personable and took a lot of time with me and seemed like she was genuinely concerned with my well being.
Dr. Chan is very nice..
very personable and friendly, i feel at ease with Teresa.
very good listner
She is the most awesome doctor anyone could want or ever have. Every time I have my follow up visit with her she is always professional and such a people person who makes you feel so wonderful. She is extremely knowledgeable and the only doctor you would ever want. Extremely highly recommended.
I was very impressed with this doctor and for the first time I felt secure with a doctor. She takes time and listens and her intelligence and understanding is very present. I would give her name to anyone who I TRULY BELIEVED WANTED A GOOD CARING DOCTOR. GOOD EXPERIENCE.
She clearly explained my test results. Listened to and answered my questions. Outlined a program for me to follow. Outlined options and respected my choices.
Very personable and sweet! Answered all my questions without rushing and took the time to explain the medicine she was prescribing me. She was confident in her diagnosis as well! Did not hesitate to write me a referral to see an outside dermatologist.
This is a real doctor who cares and takes time and listens. She is very smart and makes you feel very safe.I WILL REFER HER TO EVERYONE I KNOW. THANK YOU FOR LETTING ME FIND DR.CHAN.
Dr.Chan is always patient, asks a lot of questions, and works with you to find the best solutions.
Very friendly great listener!! I go to alot of dr's for issues and definetly would recommend.
Dr. Chan was everything I was hoping for: Extremely warm, curious, and thorough. I waited for about a half an hour before I saw her but understood why when she was examining me—She takes her time to gain the best understanding of your condition with complete attentiveness and competence.
She is great
Dr. Chan was very cordial and gentle when delivering my requested shots. She had a steady hand and the process wasn't bad at all. The only thing I'd say is the wait time was a bit long, and I was surprised, given the office was not busy. I waited just over an hour to be seen, but I would hope this is not the norm.
Convenient to my office and friendly staff.
Very thorough. Wonderful bedside manner. After a year of looking around for a primary care doc, I have found one. I highly recommend Dr. Chan.
Excellent visit! I wanted to establish a new patient relationship and Dr Chan was interested in every aspect of my medical history. She also discussed relevant screening tests. I plan to return to Dr. Chan.
She is very nice and professional. Her office staff is nice and helpful too.
She is a very caring doctor. I was not getting enough attention from my old doctor.She answered all my questions. She made referrals. She was very thorough.
It was my first time seeing Dr. Teresa Chan, (I was looking for a new primary doctor). I was seen right away after filling out some light paperwork (because I'm a new patient). Dr. Teresa Chan was amazing! As soon as I sat down, she made me feel like she knew me already. She really seemed like she cared about my condition and asked a lot of questions instead of rushing the appointment. Looks like I found my new primary doctor, and hopefully my last!
She is so great and sweet.
Simply the best doctor. So caring, loving, attentive and absolutely intelligent. Superb in every aspect.
Unprofessional staff that was fooling around and their friends were sitting on the checkin tables as I was waiting. The nurse also had to poke me in both arms to draw blood and commented that I should tell future doctors to only draw from my right arm because the veins in my left were 'collapsing'. I have gotten bloodwork done my whole life and never once had this problem.
Took her time to answer my questions and helped with referrals.
loved her, she's gonna be my new mainstay.
She has a busy practice, but she will never rush your appointment. Easy to converse with; friendly atmosphere.
She is the best. Very caring, attentive, understanding and extremely knowledgeable. Never had a doctor who really cared about me like she has. Superbly recommended.
She is the best doctor I ever had. Extremely attentive, caring, kind and an overall pleasure. I wish all doctors were like her. She is also very knowledgable and talented. I am happy with her and plan on staying with her as my personal doctor forever.
Dr Chen is extremely friendly and has an excellent bedside manner. She listened to all my symptoms fully and had a clear diagnosis. She wanted to make sure I understood the reasons why I didn't feel well and what the treatments she prescribed would do to make me feel better (all otc, btw). Her staff is very friendly. However I did have to wait for 30-40 minutes because of a mixup in patient queue. The waiting room area was very noisy and busy which wasn't ideal for a sick day. The waiting room and patient rooms are so-so, a little dated.
Was able to make a quick appoint with Dr. Chan using ZocDoc. Dr. Chan was very personable, explained her diagnosis clearly, and gave me clear directions concerning her prescribed treatment. Also helps that her office staff were kind and friendly. Will be returning soon for a full check up.
SHE IS A VERY NICE AND TALENTED DOCTOR.
This is my 4th Doctor in the city, and not because I'm picky, but because I've moved around a bit and like to have a close-by doctor's office. Dr. Chan is by far the best around! (open regular hours, kind listener, always reachable, very intelligent). I'm usually on time for appointments and have never waited, even when she's squeezed me in for a same day appointment. I just stumbled upon ZocDoc yesterday and the two together make a perfect pair!
Dr. Chan was fantastic. She had great beside manners, and really took time during my visit to explain her diagnosis.
Dr. Chan was personable, helpful and answered questions clearly and directly. I recommend her.
Dr. Chan and staff were GREAT!!!! I highly recommend this Dr.
It was an excellent happy i went . Dr. chan was sooo nice and respectful i have found my new doctor. thank you
I went in for an annual physical. She was very thorough and also easy to talk to.
Had to wait, but seemed like this was out of the ordinary. Very awesome doc!
SHE WAS VERY smart and very nice, Higly recommend Teresa Chan, MD!
