I had a pleasant visit with Dr. Chen. She is honest and sincere. When I have questions, she has patience with me when I need to talk.

Another glowing report! After much internet searching & interview-visits with at least 4 orthop surgeons, I found Dr. Chen. Outstanding skills as surgeon, listerner and educator. 30 days after surgery, I walked 5 miles in the course of the day, w. ease and pleasure. She agreed to my wish to stop pain medication, confirmed my belief that such med slows healing. She listened intently to my story of needing protein post-surgery & stated her intent to bring this to staff. We were a team!

Dr.Chen is a very personable excellent surgeon who I seen about a failed hip replacement in 2010 . She removed all hardware and drained and cleaned out infection which had settled in right hip area. I am left here in a wheelchair and no hip on right side. Pain is present and can walk short distances with walker. Dr Chen did a great job because the replacement which was taken out cleared up infection. I am currently left with nothing in my hip area and nothing that can be replaced to let me walk

By far the best orthopedic surgeon I have seen. Dr. Chen is extremely bright, with a great personality and world class surgical skills. She replaced my knee on Wednesday, today (Monday) I went to PT appointment then to a restaurant for lunch. My pain levels are much lower than I expected, and I can walk 200-300 yards no problem. Can't wait to have my other knee done.
