My Philosophy

My goal is to enable people to live their best lives. I offer advice, counsel, and support to my patients as they navigate the increasingly complex world of medicine, health, and wellness.


Dr. Chan comes to medicine through a less-conventional route than most. A New York City native, she received her bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and worked in the financial industry for several years, before making the decision to pursue medicine. She attended the University of Rochester School of Medicine & Dentistry in Rochester, NY, and then stayed for residency in Family Medicine. Focused on outpatient care from the start, she has experience in many different settings, from community health centers to private practice to urgent care. Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her family of cats (and spouse), reading science fiction, crocheting, and making messes in the kitchen.
