FAIRMONT, Minn. — Practicing medicine is truly a family affair for Ingrid Chan, M.D., and Trevor Chan, M.D. Both husband and wife recently joined the family medicine practice at Mayo Clinic Health System in Fairmont and began seeing patients Aug. 15.
“My parents were nurses, and I learned from an early age the value of caring for people,” says Dr. Ingrid Chan. Dr. Trevor Chan adds, “Growing up, I experienced the important role health care providers played during an illness event that affected a family member.”
Dr. Ingrid Chan and Dr. Trevor Chan attended medical school at St. George’s University School of Medicine in Grenada, West Indies. The two recently completed their medical residency training at Hennepin County Medical Center Family and Community Health Residency in Minneapolis. Originally from Canada, Dr. Ingrid Chan and Dr. Trevor Chan each grew up in smaller communities and are excited for the opportunity to provide care to the people of Fairmont.
“We really appreciate the family-oriented lifestyle a community such as Fairmont provides,” says Dr. Trevor Chan. “It was important for us to see how close-knit and friendly the people are,” adds Dr. Ingrid Chan. “This is such a beautiful area, with lakes and open space to explore.”
Both physicians enjoy the variety and diversity of family medicine. Specifically, Dr. Trevor Chan cites a special interest in the full spectrum of preventive care he provides to patients, while Dr. Ingrid Chan says she also has a special interest in dermatology, women’s health and obstetrics, as well as ambulatory surgery.
“We’re thrilled to have Dr. Ingrid Chan and Dr. Trevor Chan as new members of our team,” says Marie Morris, M.D., medical director at Mayo Clinic Health System in Fairmont. “They are champions for preventive medicine and growing a healthier community. Their presence adds even more strength to our highly skilled medical group.”
Staying active is important to Dr. Ingrid Chan and Dr. Trevor Chan. The pair enjoys spending time together, whether on the golf course, tennis court or simply traveling. They also make plenty of time for their two dogs, who work to keep their owners busy.
