I am a writer and musician who had two flexor tendons cut on my hand. Only a hand certified specialist would do. Only the best... Dr. Chen and his staff are just that... THE BEST! I will be forever grateful to them for seeing me through a very scary situation. Sincerely, Jazan Wild

Absolute worst ever. The manager should be working at a massage parlor at best. After waiting 2.5 hours past the appointment, I was told the Doctor I had scheduled the appointment with is not in. They could care less about patients, the practice is being run like a used car lot.

My referral was for Dr. Chen, but when I arrived, he wasn't there and I had to see Dr. Alnajjar. I waited 2 hours. Dr. Alnajjar wanted me to come back to see Dr. Chen, who only works on Fridays. The appointment was for 8:30, even though Dr. Chen doesn't start until after 9, I was told. I waited 2 hours again. I was furious when I got a bill for 2 co-pays, even though the second visit was requested by the doctor. When I complained the manager said "we have plenty of patients". Well not me anymore

My experience with Dr. Chen was most pleasant. Other specialists evaluated my hand as most likely needing a surgical procedure. After a set of X-rays, Dr. Chen made a judgment call to cast and to reset the severe diagonal break in my right 4th metacarpal. Post cast X-rays showed the bones aligning almost to perfection. Dr. Chen's experience and performance is what sets him apart from others. I will undoubtedly recommended him to all my loved ones.

I was shoot with an AK 47 in September the 19th 2014. I was told another physician that I would have to have my entire foot amputated. But Dr. Chen stepped in and stated that he could save my foot. He had to amputate 2 toes and able to save my foot. he is a good physician and he will educate you on what you need to do to have a speedy recovery.

I had been having right shoulder pain for couple years and I went into Dr. Chang's office. He then did the rotator cuff tear repair surgery. After surgery all the follow ups he was very professional and thorough with his explanations on my recuperation. Now I have returned to work, I have no pain and I have been able to work comfortably after Dr. Chen procedure.

I have been doctor shopping. After seeing other physicians that I did not trust, my insurance referred me to Dr Chen. I immediately felt very comfortable with him. He is very knowledgeable, explains everything and answered all my questions. I have relatives in healthcare who said that Dr Chen was very well respected and that if one need surgery, especially complicated surgery like mine, that Dr Chen was the man for the job. The waiting room is for PT and two other doctors so it is crowded.
