    Dr. Chan is one of the most conscientious PCPs I've had in my lifetime. I feel like she really listens to me and how I might prefer to approach treatment even if it's unconventional. I feel respected and seen as an individual.

    I always want a female doctor ( l got it ). I want my doctor listen to me (I got it ) she care about me and talk to me.. Feel so so good
    May 19, 2023
    This was my second visit with Dr. Roshelle Chan. She is first rate.
    May 18, 2023
    The provider had a student shadowing her but instead of shadowing student took the lead and the doctor was listening to her in someways more than me. Focusing on being present for the student and sort of performing doctoring towards me for the benefit of the student. It was fine and I agreed to it but the Quality of her presence did not feel genuine or attuned. More like a doctor pretending to be caring and handling a patient. It was very subtle but I felt more like an object than a human. I found a lot of the newer doctors are like this having been taught how to seem caring and respectful but it doesn't feel that way. There's a disingenuous there a way of being that still feels like you're being handled but with a veneer of trained bedside manner.
    May 17, 2023
    Dr Roshelle Chan is the most caring helpful and engaging physician. She has the best bedside manners. I couldn't ask for anyone better than Dr Roshelle.

    Such a relief to have doctor who took the time to listen and help. Dr.Chan took time to go over and explained everything very kind caring and proficient. Coming back to UCSF after decade the level of the physicians and care is excellent!
    Mar 06, 2023
    She was amazing. I was nervous about starting care with a new PCP especially because I had no choice about who to see. She explained her process for starting new patient care which was very sane. She listened to me. I feel good about having her as my PCP. I hope that she sticks around.

    Dr. Chan is exceptional.
    Feb 18, 2023
    Doctor was sympathetic and really helpful. She read the situation well and got us the care we needed. I also appreciate that she said- all after care instructions are written down so you can get out of here. Screaming toddlers and attention span are not compatible.
    Feb 16, 2023
    Excellent doctor! Spent time listening and explaining which made her run late-but that's okay. Good medical care Is more Important than punctuality.
    Feb 16, 2023

    Excellent kind and non-judgemental care provided. I very much enjoyed the time she took to walk me through everything she was doing with the vaginal inspection and Pap smear. I felt very comfortable and cared for.
    Jan 21, 2023
    I was 10 minutes latee as I went to the wrong lobby. As soon as the Dr came And she said that she only had a couple of minutes that she needed to cut it short which made me feel really uncomfortable like she didn't care off top
    Jan 21, 2023
    Outstanding care
    Jan 19, 2023

    Oct 24, 2022
    I love Dr. Roshelle Chan!!!! One of the best primary care providers I have ever experienced! She took the time to listen to me she trusted what I was sharing with her she did not minimize my own assessment of what I needed she supported what I needed while providing her expert guidance on options and paths forward and she made me feel at ease and safe to talk to her. A previous primary care provider and a nurse that I saw at this location at times made me feel minimized and did not help me with my health concerns.
    Oct 22, 2022
    Dr. Roshelle Chan is always very attentive to my medical issues. She provides excellent care and is very knowledgeable of all the resources available within USCF Health.
    Oct 20, 2022

    Doctor Chan is an excellent person she listens to everything I have to say and her concern is only the well being of my health ( her patients health) she does a thorough examination always like one expects her doctor to do and is very empathetic towards her patients. I am grateful and lucky to have such a caring and compassionate doctor
    Oct 12, 2022

    Jul 21, 2022
    Dr Chan was wonderful and very helpful! Best patient experience I've had with UCSF.
    Jul 09, 2022
    My visit with Dr. Chan was truly the first time I've ever really felt seen or heard by a health care provider in my life. She was completely engaged while I shared my medical history. She took the time to listen and understand all of my concerns and was very thorough with her assessment. That made me feel such at ease after weeks of unease. Doctor visits can be scary but I felt very trusting in her after the first few minutes of speaking with her. She curated a in-depth health plan for me going forward and I immediately felt confident that my health concerns will be resolved soon. Dr. Chan is EXTREMELY kind compassionate knowledgeable and overall a true example of what every health care provider should be! I am very grateful to have her on my health care team. She is an exemplary doctor that UCSF is so fortunate to have.

    Mar 06, 2022
    Everyone was amazing and the staff was great. The doctor and everyone who was apart in assisting me did an amazing job and made sure all my questions and concerns were taken care of. They all were very respectful and helpful.
    Feb 20, 2022
    Provider told me they are only given 15-20 minutes per patient so any other health related questions or concerns I had would have to be covered by another appointment. This was the first time I have seen this provider so I cannot say I fully recommend her to others until I have seen her a few more times.
    Feb 19, 2022
    Super happy to have found Dr. Chan. She is knowledgeable and has great people skills.
