How likely are you to recommend Dr. Chan?

(Select your rating)
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.
