Terrific doctor. The best in every way.
in Torrance, CA |
Dr Chan Was my oncologist when I was 26 years old 19 years ago. I was diagnosed with Large Cell Non Hodgkin's Lymphoma stage 2 and he was a wonderful Doctor. I went through CHOP Chemo and Radiation and this Cancer never came back. I was recently diagnosed with Stage 1 Breast Cancer Dbl Negative HER2. Once again Dr Chan was my Oncologist. Between the Chemo and a Dbl Mastectomy I am once again completely cancer free. I recommend Dr Chan to anyone with cancer.
