About Me

It’s easy for both the patients and their treating physicians to get completely focused on just the treatment of their cancer. We believe in treating the whole person, not just their cancer, with all of the tools we have at our disposal. Cancer care has made quantum leaps in terms of treatment options, but we shouldn’t lose sight of the person behind the diagnosis.

Linda Chan, M.D., medical director of radiation oncology at the MemorialCare Cancer Institute at Saddleback Medical Center, is a board-certified cancer specialist in Radiation Oncology.

Originally from Orange County, Dr. Chan did her undergraduate studies at Harvard University double majoring in biomedical science and healthcare policy. She stayed on to obtain her medical doctorate from Harvard Medical School.

Following this she went on to complete her residency program at the University of California – San Francisco, where she also served as Chief Resident.

She has authored multiple scientific publications on breast cancer, prostate cancer, and the molecular markers used to diagnose and track cancer.
