SHC Patient, May 2019

I had an appointment with Dr. Chan, and yet I spent more time during my appointment with his PA, who was a lovely lady and who showed more concern to me and my worries than Dr. Chan. Out of the entire 40-45 minutes appointment, Dr. Chan barely spent 10 minutes of that with me, flying through my concerns and was not of much help to me at all. I would not recommend him, and will not be making another appointment with him again.

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

Dr Chan is an outstanding physician

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

good

SHC Patient, Apr 2019

I have recommended Dr Edward Chan to friends!

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

extremely dismissive, condescending

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

Dr. Chan has been great! He always responds to my emails quickly and addresses my concerns/questions about my pregnancy.

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

the staff (administrative and medical) left me feeling comfortable

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

I have already several times recommended my provider on our Nextdoor app as neighbors often ask for recommendations I live in a small town

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

Dr. Chan is great with our son. He is always very patient with his worried moms and listens to all my questions & concerns without making me feel rushed.

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

Most of the time I leave feeling everything was taken care adequately. This visit was more rushed and I was out in a hurry.

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

good

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

The Doctor was likely correct that the soreness I felt was muscular, still I was disappointed that he didn't put his hands on me to feel the spot in my back where I felt this soreness.

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

Dr. Chan was great! He explained what he was going to do, in this case test me for Influenza. Explained the course of action depending on the test results. Followed up with a call within the time he had discussed with me.

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

I will never return to this clinic. This guy was just awful. Bad listener, pushy, not remotely knowledgeable regarding mental health, did not discuss my general health (this was an annual checkup), and did not explain reasons for tests he ordered. It was clear he just wasn't making an effort. Absolutely wasted my time and money.

SHC Patient, Jan 2019

Dr. was very patient w/explanations since I wear a hearing aid & having problems understanding.

SHC Patient, Jan 2019

Dr. Chan is wonderful. I trust him completely.

SHC Patient, Jan 2019

Dr. Chan was friendly but I didn't find that he was particularly empathetic or a good listener. For the level of care that I received, I could have easily just done a phone or online consultation but that was not an available option. I had pretty much the kind of experience that makes me avoid going to the doctor - didn't listen, waved off my concerns, and basically indicated that I had wasted everyone's time, especially his and mine.

SHC Patient, Jan 2019

I felt that he took a little extra care in listening to my cares and concerns.

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

With the current situation Dr. Chan took his time to help me understand what was going on and the next courses of action that needed to be taken

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

Dr. Chan is an excellent and attentive physician.
