SHC Patient, Jan 2020

The Doctor was exceptionally helpful and explained choices facing me very well.

SHC Patient, Jan 2020

Dr. Kwan is terrific. He has always listened to my concerns and showed compassion for my issue. He is also very responsive to MyHealth communications, as is his nurse, Cinder Bundy. (Cinder was very helpful in trying to resolve a problem with insurance coverage for a prescription, and recommended a Canadian pharmacy, where I was able to get the prescription at a low cost.)

He's a favorite!

Dr. Kwan is very upfront and friendly. we talked about my NASH treatment. Then, about to his attention a year colonoscopy follow up to check a colonoscopy done last year.

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, Nov 2018

Dr. Kwan is outstanding. Knowledgeable, caring, excellent communicator, welcomes questions.

SHC Patient, Nov 2018

Dr. Kwan is excellent.

Dr. Kwan is extremely knowledgeable and very clearly explained all the details of the treatment plan. He also described the potential risks of starting the medication sooner vs. waiting, and allowed me to make an informed decision.

SHC Patient, Nov 2018

Dr. Kwan was great - I have 100% confidence in his care.

SHC Patient, Sep 2018

SHC Patient, Aug 2018

I sound like a broken record, but each staff member of the staff and the care provider were excellent.

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

Dr. Kwan is an excellent doctor! He took the time and effort to look at the "whole picture" of complicated medical history and recommend a path of care.

SHC Patient, Feb 2018

I really appreciated Dr Kwan's approach and attentiveness during my appointment. In past years, I have waited for approximately 45 minutes for Dr. Chan, only to feel rushed out. Dr. Kwan was very friendly, welcomed my questions, and informed Dr. Chan of our decisions.

SHC Patient, Feb 2018

Dr. Kwan was very attentive and devoted all the time i needed to answer my questions.

SHC Patient, Jan 2018

He was cold as ice. I was exceptionally ill, and almost started crying at one point because I was so worried about what was going on. He just continued typing at the computer and never even changed his expression. Never smiled at me, never showed any caring.

SHC Patient, Dec 2017

He seemed a bit rushed, but my problem was not an emergency so it seemed appropriate.

I was completely confident in Dr. Kwan's level of competence and experience, and he was personable and did a good job giving information to me and my wife.

SHC Patient, May 2017

While the endoscopy was going on, I don't remember anything. Doctor Kwan explained what he was doing, reduced the previous dosage of the medication, and told me I should have another endoscopy in three years.
