DR. CHAN’S PHILOSOPHY
It is Dr. Chan’s oath as a physician to do no harm, and to treat any and all ocular disease to best of his abilities. In general, Dr. Chan strives to, with taking into account his patient’s well being and approval, provide a naturalistic treatment or regimen first before resorting to medical or therapeutic treatment alternatives. Obviously, as each case is unique, that may be subject to change. It is his belief that prevention is key to stemming future or more severe diseases.
