    I had three veins treated to reduce the effects of varicose veins. The fourth vein had previously been stripped. I am 76 years old and found Dr. Fan, as well as his staff, to be very competent. The surgery was done expeditiously without pain on my part. In addition, I found the staff, as well as Dr. Fan, as always having a sense of humor and light atmosphere surrounding the office. This milieu allowed me to be very "up beat" throughout the proceedings. I have absolutely no complaints. And, the legs are looking better.

    I had clogged veins in both legs. Dr. Fan and his team took very good care of me and this issue. During the clearing procedure, they had rock music playing. The nurses are very sweet ladies, always upbeat and courteous. The receptionist is great at keeping you on point with your appointments/ visits and always available for questions. Dr. Fan and his team ROCKS!!

    Dr. Fan is one in a million. His manner with people is like a ray of sunshine. I had venous reflux disease, which results in varicose veins. Varicose veins are not innocuous and can result in blood clots. Dr. Fan meticulously explained the disorder and performed the appropriate procedure with precise excellency. He is very serious about his work and highly trustworthy. My legs look great!

    After arriving at the Emergency Room I had to have emergency surgery. Dr. Fan was the emergency room surgeon, he clearly explained what needed to happen and what the possible outcomes could be. I told him I put myself in his hands. Because of Dr. Fan I had the best outcome along with his constant follow-up care. He is one of the best surgeons in the City and I would recommend him to anyone.
