Mira Loma, CA |
He was very rude and arrogant I was in tears when I left he didn't seem to know much about Rhuematiod arthritis and got nasty when I questioned him on it.. It was by far the worst experience I have ever had!
Cypress, CA |
Very dissapointed. I came from a different pain clinic who gave me subutex and they no longer accepted my insurance, dr chan and Gao gave me very little medicine compared to the subutex I was talking and now I'm in excruciating pain and full blown withdrawal and the dr won't help me . He told me to go to a detox or the e.r. what a horrible pain specialist. I have spinal fractures and need fusions at l4 l5, and he won't control my pain or my withdrawal. If he doesn't call today I'll find new dr
Dr. Chan doesn't spend a lot of time with you. He doesn't explain things well either and always seems to be in a hurry to help the next patient. I have seen him for three appointments now and I'm not impressed. I'll see what happens at the next appointment and if it's like the previous appointments, I will ask to see another pain specialist. I was in so much pain last week, I called the office during business hours and had to leave a message. They never called back.
