Poway, CA – May 12, 2018
Dr. Chen provided cardiology management services to me. He is certainly knowledgeable in his field and was proactive in recommending a heart monitor. The 4 weeks of data collected provided us with information that ultimately led to a pacemaker. Without his proactive analysis, the consequences would have been devastating. Thank you, Bill J
