SHC Patient, Feb 2019

Dr Kwan is fantastic! He listens, has empathy and then offers actionable next steps. I am very grateful to be his patient.

SHC Patient, Feb 2019

Dr. Kwan is the best! He is calm, decisive, clear, and compassionate. I appreciate that he takes the time to explain everything in detail and is always reassuring. He has my complete trust.

SHC Patient, Jan 2019

Dr Kwan was excellent at MMC and Dr. Meena Chelvakumar at Alpine Road Primary Care Clinic was extraordinary.

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

Dr. Kwan is attentive, thorough, and responsive to questions and concerns. He shows genuine compassion and makes me feel like he wants to do everything he can to help me.

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

Dr. Kwan is the best. He has taken the time to help me through very painful diverticulitis, putting it in perspective with my ongoing G.I. problems and my allergies to the most effective medications. Very thankful.

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

This was my first appt with the Dr who took over Dr. Selling's practice, and I was impressed. He diagnosis and planned tests made absolute sense. Given we drive from Pebble Beach, I ended up having the tests locally instead. But, should I have any reservations about the new Dr. in Monterey, I would come back! When sedated, it would have been hard to spend the day in the Bay Area waiting for my husband to get off work. I couldn't drive, would have wanted to sleep, and there were no accommodations for our situation.

SHC Patient, Jul 2018

Answered my questions thoughtfully.

SHC Patient, Jun 2018

Dr Kwan has a very professional & great bed side manner. He walked me thru the rationale for double dose of lansoprazole for Barrett's, which Dr Selling had started. we discussed potential options for treating my cough that could b related to reflux. He was quite thorough/ comprehensive. He assured me of the very low % of incidence of cancer related to Barrett's. Finally, he was quite firm about my seeing him at least annually; need for recurrent endoscopy & colonoscopy & rationaleI'm very glad that Dr Kwan is at Menlo is a great asset to the team of Drs that I see
