Very pleasant and agreeable bedside manner, especially as Dr Kwan, delivered challenging news which would decide which information would be especially motivating for treatment - the consultation gave me a far greater insight into my medical situation and was delivered to me frankly but with empathy. I was seen by Dr Kwan within 2 minutes of arriving for my appointment. I would most definitely recommend Dr Kwan - extremely knowledgeable and professional but actively listened to my queries, explained clearly his diagnosis and did not make me feel that I was just a list of multiple medical problems. Left the consultation a lot lighter in spirit than when I arrived and felt motivated moving forward.

Dr Kwan explained things well and reassured me. I was a little surprised that he didn’t do any of his own tests though and just relied on the blood And urine reports That I had brought in with me

After months of no diagnosis of my actual problem, I found Dr Kwan on doctify. So I decided to go see him. Even though my problem didn't steer closely to his speciality in the beginning, he listened to me and described a full process of tests to do and we actually found a strong strain of bacteria affecting my health which was missed by other doctors. Dr Kwan is very kind and listens to problems in detail and also always in reach through email, etc whenever needed. Amazing :) !!

Visited Dr Kwan at the London Bridge hospital. He is very friendly, attentive, experienced and professional. He managed to calm me down at a moment of extreme stress following a potentially abnormal finding from a scan performed abroad. After my visit I felt confident that I was at the right hands. He was always reachable (phone/text/email) and kept me updated on progress/results as soon as available. I fully recommend him.

My experience with Dr Kwan was fantastic. I feel genuinely lucky to have had such an expert look into my possible CKD case. Dr Kwan made me feel at ease immediately and was quick to reassure me when needed. The personal touch Dr Kwan has is great & he is the ultimate professional! He was quick to dispel all non-factual diagnoses and request relevant tests to explore my (non) issues. Even between waiting for results... Dr Kwan would be willing to respond to my emails regularly. Overall, I’m extremely thankful to Dr Kwan for his help.

I was recently diagnosed with Microscopic Haematuria and was referred to Nephrologist Consultant. I elected Dr Kwan particularly because of his vast experience in renal medicine. The doctor was very friendly and approachable and tried to answer my every question that I had. He also recommended me for several tests and notified my individually of what the tests were consisted of. While I was waiting for the results of tests to come through, Dr Kwan tried to answer all of my queries that I had through emails. Once the results arrived from all of tests, the Dr explained everything to me and also notified me that everything was normal and there is nothing to worry about. He also politely created a written report for all of the tests that were conducted. As a overall feedback I would say my experience was fantastic and very efficient. I will also definitely recommend this doctor to anyone having any Nephrological issues.

My experience of this Dr was excellent. I have seen quite a few doctors over the last 6 mos or so and all appeared stressed and too busy to spare me quality time and listen to my symptoms properly. All too keen to test me first and ask questions later... Dr Kwan was understanding and has an easy manner, he went right back to basics and sorted my issue. I hope Excellent is the correct word to describe him.

I would highly recommend Dr Kwan to a friend or colleague. I've found Dr Kwan's details through the internet, corroborated by highly positive feedback from my friends and family. Dr Kwan is very approachable, he has always made himself available to answer my burning questions or book an appointment, even at short notice. Moreover, he adapts to his patients and takes the time to explain, in a clear and thoughtful way, which is much appreciated.
