Dr. Jane W Chan has the following 2 specialties
A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.
An ophthalmologist has the training to do much more than just prescribe glasses. They are physicians specially trained to diagnose and treat disorders of the eyes and vision. These doctors are experts on the complicated anatomy of the eye and are trained to treat eye diseases through both medical and surgical methods.
Some common conditions that ophthalmologists treat are cataracts, glaucoma, strabismus, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and amblyopia. In addition, ophthalmologists can provide prescriptions for eye glasses and contact lenses and perform LASIK surgery and other corrective surgeries for refractive errors like myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia.

I have no complaints about Dr. Chan's competence, and other physicians have told me she's excellent--but she has about the worst bedside manner I've ever encountered. I never felt that she listened carefully (she often continued to sell me on a procedure or treatment after I'd told her I understood and accepted it, for instance, as though she'd prepared a speech and was going to deliver it no matter what). Phone messages were rarely returned (perhaps the fault of her staff at the VA hospital in Reno), and the wait for appointments was unacceptably long (again, maybe a VA problem).
I've seen Dr. Chan only at the VA Hospital, where high demand and short staffing probably contribute to both the wait and her hurried manner. To be fair, when I've pinned her down and insisted on explanations, she's given them clearly and concisely, but that doesn't seem to be a regular part of her procedure.
