Rylan Chan

Rylan Chan, PA-C

Rylan Chan is excited to join Chan Heart Rhythm Institute. (Interestingly, though he shares a common last name with Dr. Chan, they are not actually related). Rylan has practiced in Arizona for over 15 years and has an extensive background of having worked for a number of years in family medicine, urgent care, and most recently emergency medicine at Banner Baywood Medical Center, Mercy Gilbert, and Chandler Regional Hospitals. He was an integral part of the initial group of mid-level providers that instituted the first Rapid Evaluation Unit/Observation Unit at Banner Baywood Medical Center which is now the Gold Standard for all Observation Units within the Banner system.

Rylan graduated as a Physician Assistant from Arizona School of Health Sciences now located in Mesa, AZ. While in PA school, he served on the Student Academy of the American Academy of Physician Assistants Board of Directors and also on the Committee on Diversity with the American Academy of Physician Assistants and received the Chairman’s Award for Leadership. Prior to PA school, he was certified as an Athletic Trainer and received his degree in Sports Medicine from Brigham Young University in Provo, UT where he also served as the head student trainer for the 1999 BYU Men’s Volleyball National Championship team.

In addition to practicing medicine, Rylan enjoys spending time with his family. In their spare time, Rylan and his wonderful and talented wife, Molly, operate a home design company using vinyl graphics. They currently have 5 children. They enjoy sports, working out, camping, and enjoy learning about self-reliance and genealogy. Interestingly, he has traced his genealogy back to Huang Di – the Yellow Emperor of China – around 2400 BC who is widely considered the founder of ancient Chinese medicine – who is also his 130rd great grandfather!
