Dr. Chan’s treatment approach has evolved over the years and has been shaped by what he’s learned from the thousands of patients he has cared for and by the “Integrated Medicine” model of his colleague and mentor, Dr. Timothy Brown, ND. Using the principles of naturopathic medicine, Dr. Chan focuses on the individual patient (not the disease) and applies a vast array of therapies to address the patient’s nutritional deficiencies, allergies/toxicities, structural injuries, and mental/emotional stresses. This supports and stimulates the body’s natural healing ability and optimal health is restored.
One of the things that drew Dr. Chan towards naturopathic medicine is the eclectic nature of the profession and he enjoys using a wide variety of treatment modalities to help his patients achieve their health goals. As a life-long sports enthusiast and athlete, Dr. Chan has pursued his interest in sports medicine and the treatment of pain and injury. As such, he has accumulated countless hours of additional training and is board certified in a number of advanced therapies including acupuncture, IV nutrient therapy, trigger point injection therapy, and prolotherapy using platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
