“Mr Chan undoubtedly saved my life with the surgery two years ago. I am forever in his debt. As a doctor myself I know what a phenomenal surgeon he is. His skills are quite incomparable. He has such wisdom, experience and expertise. I am so grateful to have made a complete recovery with no post operative complications. I know that this is due to the care that I received from Mr Chan. His calm, kind, gentle manner rightly inspires confidence in his patients. My family and I are forever grateful to him. “
