Dr. Chan and the staff working with her are highly professional, very respectful, and caring. I have been coming to Dr.Chan office for more than five years. Dr. Chan is the first physician that I genuinely feel is listening and devoting as much attention and time to a patient as necessary. There was never a visit that would leave me with unanswered questions or a feeling rushed. This visit, devoted to an annual checkup combined with pre-surgical testing was no different. I received full attention and timely, comprehensive care.

My review is truly a gift to the world! Because Dr. Chan is a real gem!! I can continue keeping keeping her to myself, but it’s really not fair to how much she and Serena (AMAZING nurse) have given me as their patient. If you’re looking for that rare kind of dr., those unicorns that don’t just have expert knowledge in medicine, but can be collaborators in your healing process, then look no further. Dr. Chan does not just offer you medicine knowledge and expert medicine advice, she brings her heart to every session. How anyone can do that, so consistently is beyond me. If you decide to choose Dr. Chan as your medical provider, you’ll kick yourself for not doing it sooner, so run! You can thank me by later, by giving something to the world in your own way, or offering up your own fair and honest review of Dr. Chan here. I’ve been a patient of her’s for 4-5 years now and could my blessings everyday!!

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 love that 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 was greatly 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.
