|Dr. Mark Chan has worked as a children's doctor for 25 years. After his English medical degree, he spent over fifteen years working as a specialist paediatrician in Britain amongst some of the foremost hospitals. For the past ten years, he has been a private Pedi in Hong Kong.
A career and an experience that is remarkable because of all the different departments Dr. Chan worked in. Although spending some years at the famous Oxford John Radcliffe, and at one of the world's top children hospitals, Great Ormond Street, he has worked for extended periods at no fewer than 10 separate hospitals. He has also experience in the US while at Duke University Medical Centre, as well as Queen Mary Hospital in Hong Kong. This really gives the breath and depth necessary to be an all rounded clinician.
He is a certified specialist in Paediatrics of the Medical Royal Colleges of United Kingdom, and is one of the rare doctors dually recognized in both Paediatrics and Paediatric Nephrology, being on both of the Principal Lists of the Specialist Register in the UK GMC.
On a more personal level, he does firmly believe in each child being an individual book, in a more delightful and fundamentally different manner than the best medical encyclopaedia. Therefore Dr. Chan is always very specific about his diagnosis, aiming to reach that much deeper to that personal dimension.
On a holistic level, there are enough occasions that time alone is the best healer. This applies not only to western medicine (where side effects are known), but also to almost all branches of medicine (where often the side effects are less studied). Therefore Dr. Chan often will give the least medicines but more of an explanation of the natural history of the disease.
