My husband was admitted to Princess Margaret Hospital because of a sharp chest pain. Another 4 reoccurrence of chest pain happened on the same day, it was almost as frequent as once every hour. The nurse only gave him glyceryl trinitrate sublingual, a common pill used to relieve heart conditions. However, there were no other follow-up treatments. I felt that was not quite right, there was no reason that he got the chest pain every hour, and it is unreasonable that the nurse prescribed the glyceryl trinitrate sublingual without the presence of doctor’s diagnosis. Later that night we were lucky to have contacted Dr. Chan. After listening to his advice, we decided to do a transfer immediately to another hospital, although it was already 10pm at night, the doctor requested the Baptist Hospital in person, in order to help him find a spot in the ward that was fully-booked. The doctor realized the severity of husband’s case, and initiated the surgery right after the transfer. He booked the surgical room and anesthetist as he was waiting for the transfer. The surgery began right after the transfer. In the surgery, Dr. Chan used a minimally invasive catheter to
Enter his cardiovascular artery for checkups. He then discovered that 2 out of 3 arteries in my husband’s heart were blocked, and that he was in a critical condition, Dr. Chan then performed a balloon angioplasty surgery immediately. The surgery was a success; Dr. Chan is truly benevolent at heart and in mind, he saved my husband’s life, thank you Dr. Chan!
