Newbury Park, CA |
Poor bedside manners. Dr chan unsensitive to patients concerns and questions. Answers in a condescending manner . If he only knew I am a healthcare employee and by judging by this rude manners I would not recommend him to any of my patients or friends.

Dr Chan is an excellent Neurosurgeon as i recently had Spinal Abrasion surgery. He has a Direct manner I appreciate. I would recommend him to all.

By far, this has been the worst Doctor I have ever dealt with. I walked out crying because I couldn't stand his sarcasm, rude personality, and I felt extremely pressured to answer the questions he was asking without him giving me a sarcastic smirk in return. It seemed as if my condition was not important enough to have been seen by him ( which is not my fault considering my primary Doctor felt under qualified to give me any information about my condition). He lacks people skills and sensitivity.

worst bedside manner ever, truly the most condescending physician I've ever had the bad luck to encounter.
