He is very caring and I really appreciate that he takes time to explain and answer any questions I might have. Also that he honestly cares about my well being and how I am feeling. I am extremely happy that he was my surgeon for my first ever surgery.

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.
