This dude saved my life and was called late at night for an immediate brain surgery to remove a tumour from deep inside my brain. The surgery risk was stated to be 60- 80% of death and 20-40% chance of making it alive but with speech impairments, damage to the brain and nerves, disabled mentally and physically. Cams Out walking in a few days from recovery at RCH. Not talkative, and descriptive but Richards a f-king great Neurosurgeon. At first relatives and friends were a bit skeptical due to appearance and his response times in person, I was drugged out to the point where I'd find a monkey fit to operate on me LOL but figured I'd give him a rating after years. The good: Dodged a bullet, removed the tumour before it killed me from increasing in size, significantly. The bad: F-ks with my balance and lost (and loosing) vision from my right eye.

My back surgery went very well. The nurse had the greatest respect for his work compared to other neurosurgeons in the area. In my case he ordered a nerve block to be absolutely sure that the problem had been correctly identified. He said he would not operate unless he was sure it would solve the problem. During the consultation he took the time to review the MRI images with me and my wife. He has done my type of surgery 10's of thousands of times. He was very co-operative in adjusting his schedule for the final inspection so that we could return home sooner. He got raving reviews from my sister when he did her surgery and my niece had surgery by him today. I have recommended him to friends.

Dr chan isn't paid to be nice to you, he's an incredibly smart, talented man. His staff at the surgical centre are wonderful and hilarious, you're better off communicating with them more than dr chan, he's a busy man with very few words!

BE AWARE! If WCB refers you to this doc ask for another. He's unethical and all for lying for WCB. Will even call other docs incompetent with their diagnosis or readings. Said my MRI was read all wrong by a radiologist who doesn't know what he's doing and that is why he is doing his own readings. Said he doesn't trust radiologists and he couldn't see any injuries on my MRI. That's what radiologists do for a living not this guy! Saw more than one GP that confirmed my injury and one who even stated this Dr. Chan is not being truthful. The BC COLLEGE OF PHYSICIANS SHOULD BE INVESTIGATING THIS DOCTOR!! A false, untruthful diagnosis can lead to wrong treatment and more damage. Apparently WCB can get away with everything!

Great surgeon But a complete rude jerk in his office ! Does not listen, contradicts what he says and mumbles so bad you have a hard understanding what he said in the first place! After pro disc C surgery he wanted me to go back to work after one month because I mentioned a light duty program at my work. Complete jerk so if you have him as your surgeon I recommend taking earplugs with you when you go into his office.its btter to just nod your and agree then leave in a rage.
