SHC Patient, May 2019

Jeff Kwan is terrific.

SHC Patient, May 2019

Dr. Kwan was really friendly and helping.

SHC Patient, May 2019

Dr. Kwan had a very professional yet warm and friendly style. He was very kind and caring. He showed sincere interest in my concerns and listened carefully as I explained my symptoms.

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

Great review of endoscopy and colonoscopy procedures, findings, outcome of treatments and follow-up plan

SHC Patient, Mar 2019

This visit involved a very personal topic. Dr. Kwan put me at ease and I felt comfortable discussing my symptoms.

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.
