After doing lot of research, I took my son to Dr. Chen for an eye exam. However, we were really disappointed after the doctor visit. She was not being patient with kid. The eye exam was also very quick and was not thorough. She gave a prescription for eye glasses but we were not confident to order that prescription since we didn't feel like the test was thorough. I had to take my son to another doctor and had to pay from pocket since my insurance covers only for 1 visit.

We were told my son would always be blind. After he started seeing Dr. Chen, she got him up 7 lines, on the eye chart, in just 6 weeks. He's 11. For 11 years, we had no hope. Now, we have more than hope, we have results. I would recommend her to ANYONE! She's amazing!

The prescription given by doctor for vision was totally incorrect and way off for my daughter. Had to get checked with 2 other places to confirm. The other 2 places were similar while this prescription was incorrect
