What Differentiates Chanwell Clinic Institute for Heart & Sleep Disorders from Other Health Facility?

A Pioneer in Heart Sleep Disorders Clinical Care and Research!

Dr. Chan

Born in the Philippines of Chinese parents from Guangdong, China; Dr. Chan speaks fluent Chinese (Mandarin, Cantonese, Fukienese), and Filipino. He graduated M.D. from the University of Santo Tomas, Philippines with honors as "The Most Outstanding Medical Intern."

His post-doctoral training was at the Affiliated Hospitals of Johns Hopkins University (Union Memorial Hospital), University of Chicago (Michael Reese Medical Center), and Northwestern University.

In 2002, Dr. Antonio Q. Chan realized the intimate association between poor sleep and increase incidence of hypertension, diabetes and heart disease while caring for patients and teachings as Adjunct Clinical Professor at Stanford University Hospitals. Stanford Sleep Medicine helped built a Sleep Lab within the Cardiac Lab at Chanwell Clinic in Cupertino, California. Thus Dr. Chan pioneered one of the world’s first SLEEP CARDIOLOGY medical practices. Since patient suffering from sleep apnea and heart disease needs prompt diagnosis and treatment; patients get better and much faster under our care. Soon patients from all over California, parts of U.S. and Asia start coming to Chanwell Clinic for our unique leading-edge expertises.

He has been voted consecutively as "The Best Sleep Doctor" in 2011 and the "The Best Sleep Cardiology Doctor" in 2013 by the San Jose Mercury News (Milpitas Press) in Silicon Valley, California.

Dr. Chan is Diplomat of the American Board of Cardiovascular Diseases, Sleep Medicine and Internal Medicine; Registered Polysomnogrphic Technology; one of the very few combined Sleep Cardiology specialists in the U.S. Since most heart diseases are associated with sleep disordered breathing such as sleep apnea; essentially patients coming to Chanwell Clinic are getting three specialists in Cardiology, Sleep, Internal Medicine for the price of one specialist during clinic visit. This promotes extreme healthcare efficiency and reduces healthcare cost since patient does not need to see two specialists in two different locations at two different times.

He has lectured widely here in the U.S. and abroad at Beijing University Renmin Hospital, China; Stanford University School of Medicine Primary Care Associates Program; Albert Einstein University, New York; Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota; Ochsner Clinic, New Orleans, Louisiana; Louisiana State University; California Pacific Medical Center, San Francisco, University of Hawaii, Honolulu, HI.

From 2002 to 2013, Dr. Chan and his team has presented and or published over 47 scientific abstracts and literatures dealing with the intimate relationships, cause and effects between sleep disorders and heart disease:
