Hello, and welcome to my Web page! My name is Dr. Terence Chan.
I was originally born in Hong Kong but immigrated to the United States along with my family when I was four years old. I speak Cantonese as well as English. I grew up in the Southern California area, and I went to Loyola High School in downtown Los Angeles. After high school, I attended UC Riverside, where I majored in biochemistry and minored in religious studies. From there, I attended American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine, and completed my residency at Kern Medical Center in Bakersfield. I wanted to become a physician since I was seven years old. When I was young, I was sick often and I noticed that doctors made me feel better. Now that my dream to become a doctor has come true, I want to help and give back to the community.
I believe in preventive medicine. I hope to help you stay healthy in order to prevent diseases before they happen.
I practice hapkido (Korean martial arts) and teach at Kim's Hapkido in Alhambra, CA. I try to keep balance in my life. My family is a major priority to me; I also enjoy sporting events such as Dodgers and Lakers games.
