Patient Comments (2)
in Elverta, CA |
Dr. Chan and his Nurse Cora each deserve a 5+ star rating. It's too bad some folks are rating Dr. Chan low because of poor performace from his front staff - which I will agree needs improvement. Dr. Chan very knowledgeable, considerate, caring and very willing to listen to his patient (me). He is very upfront with diagnosis and options. After hearing horror stories from some of my friends with the same cancer, I will say Dr. Chan cares about his patients comfort during the tests and treatments.

I liked Dr. Chan, but his staff kept saying that they didn't get my *urgent* referral from my primary Dr., and sent me back to my primary Dr.'s staff (who in turn had faxed it over the first time but kept doing it again) a total of 5 times before I gave up & followed up days later to try to get my appt., taking 3 more telephone calls, which was and exhausting and unfair way to treat a sick patient. I changed my health plan group, primary care Dr. and never went back to Dr. Chan again!
