Family medicine physician joins Tulare Cardiology
TULARE – Family medicine physician Roy Kin-Wai Chan, MD, is now seeing patients at the Tulare Cardiology Center, an affiliate of the Kaweah Delta Medical Foundation.
Dr. Chan has been with the Tulare VA Community-Based Outreach Center since 2012, providing primary care and women’s health care for veterans. Previously he provided care at Mountain View Medical Clinic in Dinuba. He is Board-certified by the American Board of Family Medicine.
“I have been in the area for almost seven years, and I really wanted to stay here,” Dr. Chan noted. “The VA is going through a lot of changes, and this opportunity allows me to maintain access to my patients here.”
Dr. Chan served his residency at Ohio State University Medical Center and earned his doctor of medicine degree at University of Kentucky College of Medicine. He earned an undergraduate degree in molecular, cellular and developmental biology with an emphasis on neurobiology at Yale University. His personal experiences battling non-Hodgkins lymphoma while in medical school have helped him develop a “unique perspective” on the patient experience, he added.
“Statistics show that many diseases can be prevented in the early stages of life and that good primary care can prevent disease,” he added. “The art of medicine is reaching the patients with this information. Quality, compassionate care is the model for my practice.”
The Tulare Cardiology Center is located at 938 N. Cherry Ave. To make an appointment, call 559-686-3481.
