Approach

Dr. Teresa Chan has been providing primary care to a diverse patient population in the Lower East Side for nearly 15 years. She speaks fluent Cantonese and Spanish. She believes in providing holistic, compassionate care that is culturally sensitive. For her undergraduate degree, Dr. Chan attended Rensselaer Polytechnic institute, completing a degree in biology as part of a 6-year-accelerated biomedical program. This program continued at Albany Medical College, where Dr. Chan completed her medical degree. Dr. Chan then came back downstate to the Beth Israel Medical Center, where she did her residency training in urban family practice and was chief resident in her final year there. Dr. Chan has been affiliated with Beth Israel Medical Center since her residency days and holds certification from the American Board of Family Medicine. Dr. Chan's philosophy of care: "As a primary care family physician, my role is not only to provide guidance for my patients in order to be healthy in body, mind and spirit, but also to be my patients' advocate and partner to help and support them to achieve their health, wellness and life goals."

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Chan and the staff working with her are highly professional, very respectful, and caring. I have been coming to Dr. Chan office for more than five years. Dr. Chan is the first physician that I genuinely feel is listening and devoting as much attention and time to a patient as necessary. There was never a visit that would leave me with unanswered questions or a feeling rushed. This visit, devoted to an annual checkup combined with pre-surgical testing was no different. I received full attention and timely, comprehensive care.

How was your experience with the doctor?My review is truly a gift to the world! Because Dr. Chan is a real gem!! I can continue keeping keeping her to myself, but it’s really not fair to how much she and Serena (AMAZING nurse) have given me as their patient. If you’re looking for that rare kind of dr., those unicorns that don’t just have expert knowledge in medicine, but can be collaborators in your healing process, then look no further. Dr. Chan does not just offer you medicine knowledge and expert medicine advice, she brings her heart to every session. How anyone can do that, so consistently is beyond me. If you decide to choose Dr. Chan as your medical provider, you’ll kick yourself for not doing it sooner, so run! You can thank me by later, by giving something to the world in your own way, or offering up your own fair and honest review of Dr. Chan here. I’ve been a patient of her’s for 4-5 years now and could my blessings everyday!!

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr Chan always takes her time during our appointments and answers all my questions. I love that she also knows what my insurance will cover so I'm never worried that she's going to order tests that aren't covered. I also love that she is both my PCP and OB/GYN. She really knows the full picture of my health and approaches medicine holistically in that manner rather than viewing patients' problems as one off conditions to medicate. Dr Chan is the best physician I've had since living in NYC for 10 years. Thanks for being amazing Dr C!
