Superb, excellent doctor. Very thorough in examination, evaluation. Detailed explanations of all medical findings. I will recommend Dr. Chan anytime.
in Las Vegas, NV |
I am 87 year old suffering from heart failure, sleep apnea and have been under the care of Dr. Chan for over 30 years. I am still alive, and leading a normal life in retirement; thanks to Dr. Chan's superb expertise in cardiology and sleep medicine. I give him my highest rating for his clinical knowledge, deep experience and human compassion.

Dr Chan is the best among all the sleep apnea specialists I have encountered. He is the only physician who was able to pinpoint the failure of my previous apnea treatment and successfully got rid of uncomfortable arrhythmia. He takes his time to explain the results of his to comprehensive exam, diagnostic tests and plan of treatment. Most of all he treats the whole patient, not only the main complaint, and regularly monitor the the progress of treatment.

Dr Chan is so far the best doctor in Las Vegas . His staff is very helpful .
Thank you EJ. We try very hard to do our best and keep our patients well as much as possible. Let us know anytime if we could be of further service to you. Dr. AQ Chan

Rented me a cpap that was not properly adjusted and unusable. Even though I returned the unit, I was stilled charged $500. Keep your hand on your wallet.
Treating sleep apnea requires close interactions between patient and doctor. You were at high risk of stroke, death and cancer deaths. We gave you an option rental to treat sleep apnea as a favor to you and it just covered our cost of providing the rental service.
