Dr. Chan helped me when no one else could. The thing that struck me the most was when she said I was thinking about you last night and..... She actually thought about how to help me with my mystery illness in her time off. I don't know where I'd be without her.

Dr Chan is the most caring,sensitive, qualified, and mentally equipped Doctor I have ever met. I would refer anyone to her to include my own mother. She truly has a heart of gold with the abilitys to match. There is no one better.
