What People Say About Dr. Richard Chan, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Dr. Chan is the best. I’ve been a patient of his for several years now and he is everything a great doctor should be: wise, caring, thoughtful and takes the time necessary to explain the situation to you in terms you can understand. But most important of all, he has that #1 quality every doctor should have, which is HE LISTENS to you, never making you feel rushed just so he can get to the next patient in line. He is a first-rate physician and I would highly recommend his practice to anyone.

Very poor attitude and rushed through my visit. All he was doing was yelling at his staff and projecting his anger about something to me and other people. He tried very hard to steer me to another pharmacy for my sensipar medication.
