Ratings for Dr. Bill Chan
Ours was a rather special case as my 20-yr daughter was just visiting for a week. But Dr. Chan was very helpful beforehand and throughout that week to make the most of her time. Diagnosed with fibromyalgia, she had a very painful 4-hour flight here to Calgary -- but her flight home was much easier. Dr. Chan treated her with a combination of electro-acupunture and TCM.
Dr. Chan is an incredible man! I first went to see him after much research and what appealed to me is that he is registered in both traditional Chinese medicine and Western medicine. I felt I would be in good hands. Our first appointment was long, as he is a tremendous listener, wanting to really know the source of the problem. I found him to be attentive and sincere in his approach. Having spinal problems, with lower back pain, in addition to nerve pain in the legs after surgery, I had a lot going on. After 10 sessions, I felt so much better and as a result went back to work teaching. I continue to go back whenever the pain arises. I simply cannot say enough good things about him. It's worth a try, as drugs do not do what acupuncture can do! Lori G
I have done quite a bit of research which brought me to Dr. Bill Chan. I have a chronic condition called trigeminal neuralgia. Over the years I have been on numerous medications and have had even microvascular decompression surgery. I was in remission also for several years but recently when my pain came back in my face it was excruciating. I couldn't see my neurosurgeon for at least 6 weeks so I had to do something. I did not want to be on narcotics to control the pain as they often don't work for nerve pain, so it was time to take my health into my own hands. I am also a health professional and I have read many articles. I also read that according to the WHO (World Health Organization) acupuncture is recognized as a treatment to help trigeminal neuralgia. So I gave it a try. I have been going to see Dr. Chan for 6 weeks now and have seen a great improvement. I am still on medication but hope to reduce the dosage and eventually not have to rely on them anymore. I just have to say I have appreciated Dr. Chan's knowledge, professionalism and his ability to listen. He is never rushed. He has helped me tremendously. I came into his office not being able to chew any solid food without constant pain. Talking, laughing, chewing and even brushing my teeth would cause me to have an attack that can best described like someone stabbing you with a knife. The nerve pain I felt can basically be described as a "short circuit" in my face. My journey is not complete, but I definitely can see results with acupuncture. I am able to chew solid food again and not have those excruciating attacks like I did. I would highly recommend Dr. Chan and his expertise. JS
I had neck and upper back pain and I was amazed that just after a few treatments, I noticed a BIG difference! Dr. Chan guided me through everything, answered all my questions, and is always very patient. It is private and relaxing treatment room. Each acupuncture session lasts one hour, and Dr. Chan treats one patient at a time. I am very thankful. I highly recommend this place!!! Kellie
I was referred to Dr. Bill Chan by a co-worker of my spouse who had been in a similar condition and said that she had been restored her health. From the very first time seeing Dr. Chan, it was clear that I was in the care of an extremely knowledgeable and proficient acupuncturist, passionate about his profession, but also teacher and a healer. It was at once calming and inspiring. I left that day realizing that I had not just the possibility, but a certainty of becoming myself again, moving with joy and confidence rather than the pain and apprehension that afflicted me for several years.

My first experience with acupuncture was because I had so much pain in my neck, shoulders, and back that no massage could alleviate. I couldn't sleep at night, the pain was so excruciating, so I went in to see Dr. Chan on a recommendation of a friend. We spoke for 20 minutes before the treatment; my sense from that discussion was that I was dealing with a competent professional. After the initial acupuncture treatment (about one hour) I felt almost pain free immediately and I felt like I didn't need since the pain was 100% gone the next day! Thanks to Dr. Chan, it was very good. I always recommend this place to close friends and family. Sarah N.
Dr. Chan has been a great help to my health. Over the past 6 months of regular visits I have seen chronic conditions I had accumulated over the years disappear or minimized. Dr. Chan runs his practice with an emphasis of quality over quantity. I never have felt rushed in his office – this I believe is what really sets him apart from his peers as I have visited many acupuncturists and all are so harried and rushed! With a slower patient focused pace symptoms can be explained clearer and a diagnosis and treatment can be identified easier. Without a doubt I would recommend Dr. Chan!
