Verified Patient Reviews
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 sure to 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 also never 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.
I've been a patient of Dr. Fan's for about 2 years - he's very warm and friendly and demonstrates a great sense of knowledge and pride in his work. Strongly recommend!
Dr. Fan is always punctual and quick with his appointments.
patient. understanding. quick. professional.
He is a really nice doctor. And he's really helpful. He's the expert in this area. He's experienced so he also gave me some suggestions on how to make choices.
He is great if you have a quick fix problem, but I'm not convinced he is able to address chronic problems. He has been really responsive and kind so I'm still giving it another shot.
He was very friendly and efficient. I did have a little bit of a hard time understanding him though.
The best experience I've had with a doctors office. Everyone is very attentive and makes you feel comfortable
Very nice. Was in and out quickly.
I don't usually like male OBGYN's, but Yuan-Da Fan was incredibly friendly and professional. Would highly recommend him. Visit was short and sweet.
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. I recently 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.
The staff was very welcoming and sincere. Dr Yuan-Da Fan was very effective and informed. A one stop shop medical visit. His intern was also very great!
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 I knew 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 kind, efficient, and really friendly! I made my appointment for my annual Pap smear and it was really fast. Since I was the first patient, the wait time was less than five minutes and the entire appointment only took about 15.
Avoid early morning appointments since I had to wait for more than 30 minutes.
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.
Everyone in office was very nice and Dr. Fan made me and my husband feel very comfortable. He was very quick and obliging.
He was really patient and helpful!
Great! I really hate going to the doctors but it was fast and easy and the whole office was nice!
Dr. Yuan-Da Fan is very knowledgeable and made me feel comfortable telling him what was going on, without it feeling like I was talking to a judgmental stranger, especially since this was our first meeting and he is a male on-gyn.
Dr. Fan answered any questions that I had. He explained what he was doing during the exam and told when I would get my test results. His staff was excellent, too.
He was lovely, all team is great!
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 rehash what 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 leaving the 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.
Dr. Fan was fantastic. Made a same-day appointment and was in and out in no time. Felt very comfortable the entire time. Highly recommend.
Dr. Yuan is an amazing doctor, explained everything in detail and was very patient with answering all my questions.
Excellent attention and the doctor is wonderful
It was very quick. However, Dr. Fan was very kind and calm. It was a comfortable experience. I do wish we had more time to consult and ask questions.
I was very well attended by Doctor Da Fan I am thankful
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.
The receptionist and nurse were very friendly and professional! I had a bit of a wait with being seen (~35 min) but the staff and Dr. Fan were all very apologetic. I found Dr. Fan's bedside manner to be warm and friendly and both he and the staff handled my concerns quickly and fully. I would definitely recommend!
Dr. Fan is very warm and friendly, and the exam was thorough and quick. I will be going back to him. Great experience overall!
Very kind and calming, makes an the ever so awkward gyno visit bearable. Would definitely recommend!!!!
There was no sign at the reception to ask people to sign in, and after I signed up, people who came after me still went before me. The waiting time was too long. The doctor was professional though.
He's good. Did not have to wait long for my appointment, as all the documents where already filled in.
He and the front desk staff were extremely nice. I felt very comfortable.
He was very pleasant and there was no wait time at all. The office staff was friendly and very professional, enjoyed my visit there.
Very nice and professional
As always, Dr. Fan was warm, kind and generally wonderful.
Excellent service! The front desk is very helpful and the doctor is very knowledgeable!
Fast but productive, he answered all my questions in 5 minutes
Dr. Fan ensured that I was comfortable and engaged in conversation! He also answered all the questions I had in a thorough manner.
Worst bedside manner ever. He was in a rush to leave after barely 5 minutes in the room with me. Brushed off my concerns, rushed out, and locked himself in his office when I still had unanswered questions. Left me totally bewildered and more confused than when I came in.
He's very nice but in the visit felt rushed. He just keeps nodding and says yes, yes. The staff at the front desk are super friendly and nice.
The ladies at the office are always so nice and accommodating. The birth control shot I usually receive hurts pretty bad because of the actual medicine. But the nurse who administers it is so awesome and the actual shot barely even hurts! Love them.
was fast visit. Answered all my quesitons
He was very reassuring and took the time to explain all the answers to my questions.
I am so glad that I scheduled my 12 week ultrasound through Dr. Fan. My husband and I are in San Fran for six weeks due to work, therefore, our situation is a little abnormal. Nonetheless, Dr. Fan and his teem accommodated us and made everything so easy. He is very knowledgeable and kind. I highly recommend his services.
Dr. Fan was very reassuring and professional.
Dr. Fan had wonderful bedside manner! I waited about 30 minutes in the office but he did acknowledge that and apologize. The office was comfortable and friendly. I will be happy to return and recommend.
Dr. Fan is one of the nicest and knowledgeable doctors that I know. He expresses genuine concern over his patients and is very attentive to their concerns.
Dr. Yuan-Da Fan is great. He's kind, sensitive, and I trust his opinion and diagnosis. He is also very fast, efficient and careful with all procedures. (And I've had a few with him!) At first he can seem to be in a rush in conversation, but if you ask questions and if he sees you are concerned or upset about anything, he takes the time to further explain things and offers reassurance. He's made me feel at ease in some of the most uncomfortable times. I cannot say enough good things about him.
I wanted to get informed about different types of contraception before choosing one for myself. Dr Yuan-Da Fan suggested one type and sent me off without any reasoning behind it.
It was okay, but they charged me copays even though my plan does not have copays. I have called the office about 10 times since then and still did not get reimbursed for what they got paid for twice.
Awesome doctor. Very professional and nice.
He was very gentle, caring, and quick - all the best qualities for a gyno appt :D
Wait was long but doctor was AMAZING!
Dr. Fan was QUICK and gentle, which are the top qualities that I look for in a gynecologist. I'd definitely recommend him.
Had to call to verify , but great experience none the less.. great office team , very helpful.
Completely wasted my time. I never received my lab results despite calling and leaving several messages. I ended up having to go to another doctor.
I can't believe there was actually a lot of people coming to see this man. He didn't even do my annual. He said I didn't need it. When I explained to him my concerns about my menstral cycle while on my birth control... I didn't even get a clear answer except to stay on it. PISSED OFF. WASTE OF TIME. BIGGST WASTE OF MONEY. I Highly recommend you find somewhere else to go. p.s. The office is poorly run AND not the cleanest.
Painless, quick, and easy!
Dr.Fan is so nice and soft to me.
Kind, friendly doctor. I highly recommend him.
I had an easy, quick visit with Dr. Fan, with the exception of one unforeseen hiccup. When I arrived for my appointment, Dr. Fan was not there - he had to run out of the office for an emergency C-section for one of his patients. These things happen, and the front desk staff was able to get me in right after he returned about 1-1.5 hours later, however; it would have been nice to have a received a call so I didn't have to come all the way to the office and wait there (luckily I had a flexible schedule that day and was able to leave their offices and return when he came back, and I was seen shortly after). Dr. Fan was kind and a veteran OB-GYN - the exam was short but thorough enough. Being that I am young, healthy, and had no concerns, this was fine, but it did feel a bit rushed (I imagine this may have had something to do with getting a little behind schedule due to him having to leave the office). Great if you are cool with getting in and out and on with your day (as I was), but if you want someone with whom you'd like to sit down with and address concerns and/or have questions, you may want to consider a different doc.
It didn't fix my issue.
Awesome Dr!! I didn't personally feel rushed at all, and he gave me a prescription that would last a long time so I don't have to keep going in to get it refilled :) Also spent a good amount of time answering my questions and giving me valuable information.
Very easy routine pap + birth control visit. He was extremely reassuring and I didn't mind going to a male doctor at all.
Very nice, honest doctor. Looks out for your best interest.
Very quick and effective. Found the root of the problem and had me in and out of there in less than 15/20min!
The visit felt rushed, and he didn't put the effort in to get to know me and ask if there was anything i'd like to discuss. I didn't go over sexual history/partners/planning. The exam didn't feel thorough and he tried to talk me out of a pap smear.
Probably the most rushed doctors appointment I've ever had, and this was after waiting more than an hour to be seen. I think my yearly checkup lasted all of about 5 mins or less. Dr himself was very nice and seemed competent.
Very professional. Good overall.
He arrived 45 mins late so there was a backlog of patients. When he finally did see me, although he was very friendly and smiling, the appointment felt too rushed. He didn't hear me out on my symptoms and actually assumed I came in for another issue (even though while booking the appointment, I clearly mentioned what my concern was).
He is very courteous and had been practiced for over 35 years. However, he did not listen very carefully to my symptoms, and thus wasn't able to solve my issues.
Fantastic -- I would highly recommend Dr. Yuan-Da Fan!
Experienced and very profesional
He seemed nice but kind of rushed.
Dr. Fan is an excellent doctor who is very friendly and patient.
I felt very uncomfortable. He pushed his opinion instead of listening.
He gave me lots of samples! He probably saved me $150-200 just by giving those to me!
Friendly doctor and staff. Very helpful. Quick service.
Seemed a little rushed definitely go in there w all your questions ready to ask.
meh, doctor didn't really explain much but gave me what I needed in terms of a prescription
Dr. Fan's waiting room is always packed but it is worth the wait. He comes highly recommended, I can always get in to see him the same day, which is very important to me. His staff is professional and they are very cordial. He is conveniently located in the City.
Dr. Yuan was very kind and helpful. I am happy I found a nice doctor in sf!
Dr. Fan is very reassuring about an uncomfortable subject.
He was great, made me feel really comfortable and welcome!
Very comfortable atmosphere! Very proffessional and would highly recomend
If you are a high risk pregnancy women, I won't recommont him.
This was a very easy visit, which was exactly what I was hoping for. I liked Mr. Fan a lot.
i'm not sure i would recommend this doctor, and this doctor received really high marks. i felt rushed, he was a little rough, and i had a little difficulty understanding him completely. not to mention that my appointment lasted 5 minutes, but i waited for 45 minutes.
I really liked Dr. Fan - he was easy to talk to and very clear! The only problem I had with the overall visit was that the office was a little dusty and I feel that doctors offices should strive to be extra clean.
The office itself was less than stellar. The carpet was old and dirty. The rooms looked like they were in need of some repair. Not very welcoming for a doctor's office that you would hope was clean and state of the art. Dr. Fan himself was a sweet guy, but I felt extremely rushed and brushed off. I had a bunch of questions and he really didn't answer them fully and made it seem like my concerns were not a big deal.
