Biography

Biography

Dr. Chan started her journey into the field of dermatology while studying art history at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. There she cultivated her skills of visual analysis and pattern recognition, which help her in both diagnosing skin conditions and finessing facial aesthetics during cosmetic procedures. During her residency training she managed a wide breadth of conditions, including complicated cases from outside centers.

She believes strongly in treating each patient as an individual, and in doing so, wishes to improve not only their skin, but their overall quality of life.

She has presented at many academic meetings and is a member of the American Academy of Dermatology, the Los Angeles Metropolitan Dermatologic Society and the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery.

When not in the clinic, Dr. Chan enjoys painting, hiking, and travelling the world with her boyfriend and adorable labradoodle, Yogi.

Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety. However, language that may contain profanity, slander, libel or private health information is removed. Comments reflect the views and opinions of patients. Comments are not endorsed by, nor do they necessarily reflect the views of, Providence.

The only issue I have with my care provider is that a lot of times the recommendation is to just come back for a check-up 3 months later because they want to see if situations worsen or gets better. A lot of times there aren't any changes and I rather not see the provider as often but I need to in order to get the prescriptions.

Felt rushed; talks very fast; is she on a time table?

I came to have a bump on my back looked at in case it might be cancerous. Dr. examined it and said it was not cancerous. After I left, I realized I forgot to ask her to check for any possible cancerous moles/marks. While I forgot to ask her, I think that she should have taken a look at my skin since I came in with concerns about possible cancer. However, she did not bother to look. Although she was able to quickly diagnose that the bump was not cancerous, I thought the time she spent with me (less than 5 minutes) was lacking.

They check my skin for new skin cancers or pre-cancers every six months. It is reassuring to know they will find any new skin cancers early before they spread.

I was very impressed with Dr. Chan. I need periodic checkups for skin cancer. Dr. Chan was very thorough, and I felt confident that she identified all possible problems. (I have not felt this way about other dermatologists in past.) I really felt like she takes her responsibilities very seriously, and is determined to provide the best possible care. I would definitely recommend her to friends and/or family members.
