He was very nice and so was the staff, I didn't understand him very well, and he was a lot older than I thought he was. I asked him questions about fertility because I am in my late 30s and hisresponse was that I needed to take my IUD out before trying to get pregnant with my husband, which I thought was a no brainer. Nice enough guy, but will probably try and find a younger woman doctor with more of a background in fertility and advanced aged pregnancies.

Dr. Yuan-Da Fan has a great bedside manner. I was seen immediately, which is also a huge plus. I ended up having a complication that requires surgery. My surgery was scheduled for 2 days later and the office helped with theprocess end-to-end. Really appreciate both the doctor and the office. Thanks!

The office staff were very courteous. Since I filled out the new patient intake information on ZocDoc beforehand, Dr. Fan saw me almost immediately after I got to my appointment. I needed a routine prescription refill and Dr. Fan made sureto ask about the relevant history and my reactions to the medication, as well as explain other routine checkups I should do soon without pressuring me to do them ASAP.

Dr. Fan and his staff were very pleasant but he was very rushed during my appointment despite the fact I was the only client in the office. He could have been a bit more gentle during the pap. The staff alsonever called me with the follow up results. I was hoping to have a good experience but I did not feel like I was give the time and attention. Maybe he was having an off day but I would not recommend him to my friends.

Dr. Fang did not conducted a systematic approach of the diagnostic, he schedules a surgery before he understands the real problem I have. I scheduled an appointment with UCSF and found that his diagnostic is completely wrong. I feel so lucky that I did not proceed with the surgery.

I would not recommend Dr. Fan's office. I visited for my appointment almost a month ago, and am still confused by the visit, but feel compelled to write this review to prevent anyone else from having a similarly difficult experience. Irecently moved to SF and needed an OB-Gyn for an annual check-up. Dr. Fan's office is close to my office and many available times and decent reviews made him a logical choice. However, the care was not up to standard, and several weird things happened. 1. Dr. Fan an absurdly fast exam (3 seconds max) and then said that everything looked normal, and thus no need for a pap smear. 2. In my prior history, I had indicated that I had previously had an irregular pap smear, and thus am supposed to be getting them every 6 months. Only once pressed did he agree to do a pap smear. 3. I'm pretty sure the tools for the pap smear were not sanitary - he dropped the uncovered little brush on the floor before using it. 4. The pap smear was done 3 weeks ago and I have received no information about my results. I have called the office and received no further information. When I realized I wouldn't be getting my test results, I was quite upset: I need these results, and my insurance only pays for one visit/test per year. I remember the office being very particular about ensuring that my insurance was accepted, so was worried that my insurance had been billed even though I received subpar services. Once I contact my insurance company, however, it appears that 3 weeks later a claim has still not been filed for this visit or the test. I am overall quite confused, and worried. I think I was given an exam with non-sterile tools and now it looks like the paper trail from my visit is not there. I am making an appointment with a doctor referred by someone I know well as soon as possible. I would not recommend going to this doctor at all.

I went in for an annual gyno visit and to get a birth control prescription. The doctor asked me no questions, and when I said I wanted the pill, he just wrote me a prescription, no questions about my medical history,blood pressure, etc. The office said they would call me in a few days with the results of my standard STI screening. Two weeks later, they still hadn't called -- I had to follow up with them. Then, they never submitted any of my insurance information (which I gave them in advance and when I arrived), so months later I was getting bills from the lab and from their collection agency, and had to submit the insurance claims myself, which was a pain. I wouldn't recommend this place.

I will start by saying that everyone in the office and the doctor was very nice but, the doctor made me feel very uncomfortable and the service after the visit was not good. I wanted an overall std test and Iknew I had a bacterial infection. I've had them before and it usually goes away on its own/there are over the counter medications for it but I wanted to make sure and treat it since I was there. He treated me like I knew nothing about my vagina and made me look at it while he named every part of it. Told me everything was good although I knew it wasn't. Every time I've gotten testing for yeast or bacterial infections the doctor tests it while you are there and tells you the results immediately. He never even tested it although I asked! He said he would send everything off for a std screening and he would call in a couple days with the results. It has now been 4 weeks no one ever called!! I tried calling a couple weeks ago but the receptionist said the doctors had already left. I just called again and the receptionist couldn't find my results, after she put me on hold and looked for several minutes she told me everything was good but she seemed super unsure and sounded like she couldn't actually find the results. I'm not even sure they sent it out. It is definitely not acceptable to run a business this way let alone sensitive information!

Dr. Fan was professional, friendly and caring with a wealth of information to offer. He curbed any anxiety I had from the moment he walked in. He already knew all of my information (unlike some doctors who ask you to rehashwhat you just told the person taking your vitals) and was careful to be sure I understood everything he was paying attention to in his examination. I will definitely be returning for any future needs.

Dr Fan is really great. I felt comfortable and in good hands. The reception staff and nurses are also very nice and accommodating! The only thing that Dr Fan could have done better is communicating what I could have expected leavingthe office. He removed a cyst (went well) but I was in pain sitting the remainder of he day that I had to leave work to work from home.
