Ratings for Dr. Jonathan Fan
Dr. Fan is very knowledgeable. He answers any questions I ask him! He listens carefully and cares about you and does anything he can to help you get the right treatment! I often had to get referrals and he sent me for those. I don't feel rushed when I'm in his office. He definitely takes his time! Would highly recommend him.
Dr Fan needs to interact with his patients with more compassion and understanding. My mother went to see him and he was quizzing her on things... rather than helping her learn about her health or giving her advice. He gets flustered easily and side tracked. He said at one point "I can't help you." Would not recommend!
There are so many things about this doctor that I dislike! His whole aura is off, yes you can be knowledgeable but you need to listen to your patients, especially when they are coming to you about concerns about their bodies and symptoms they're experiencing. I feel a sense of attitude or maybe annoyance when I visit this man. I feel rushed and my issues are taken lightly. Dr. Fan has made me feel uncomfortable a few times by how he has refer to me being "obese". Today has been one of my longest wait times (been waiting over 1 hour now). Usually short wait time, staff is good and the original group of ladies back when the amazing, awesome Dr. Sharma was around (RIP)
This doctor will take several years to be an average doctor. I think he needs some treatment for himself first as he has a severe problem in understanding and communicating with his patients. He gets irritated and make weird faces if patient ask any question or explanation about the medical issues and contents of reports. He feels very high of talking in medical language using complex medical technologies and has no patience to explain them in simple language that any patient can understand. Moreover, his irritability actually makes patient uncomfortable in asking questions. He will never spend more than 5-10 minutes with patients. He has the habit of opposing to whatever patient says, not listening and misunderstanding his patients. He is very poor in communication. Several months ago I went to him for my persistent cough and I told him that I have tried everything like puffers, cough syrup and other medications and seen some doctors but nothing seems to work. I requested a referral to the respirologist but he said "I can do everything what a respirologist can Do and I will not refer you to respirologist" Even though he prescribed a medicine which helped for few days but my cough started again as soon as the course of medicine was complete. Then I requested him again to refer me to a respirologist. He again refused. He sent me for lung test saying that's exactly what respirologist will do. My lung test report came normal but my cough did not stop. Then I had to go for my kidney stone surgery during the CT scan it was found I have some enlarged lymph nodes. I was referred to a specialist for the lymph nodes which specialist said everything is normal in regards to lymph nodes. Then I requested the specialist to refer me to a respirologist as Jonathan was not referring me to respirologist. The specialist immediately made a note in his report and requested Jonathan Fan to send me to a respirologist for my cough. Specialist also ordered a CT scan of my chest which Jonathan Fan should have ordered long time ago when I went to him for my cough. Now my CT scan shows suspicious Neoplasm which Jonathan never explained to me what it means but now referred me to respirologist after 6 months of my initial request for respirologist. Respirologist (Dr. Fanares) is so good. She treated me like a friend and is now working on Tubersulosis test and bronchoscipy which could have started 6 months ago had Jonathan Fan listened to me as a good doctor would do. STAY AWAY from this dictor
