Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

SO Caring for ALL Patients
We saw Dr Chen for a consult for my partners liver cancer. He'd spent almost an hour reviewing all his records, and spent a lot of time w/us. Dr Chen is not able to treat the type of cancer my partner has, but Dr Chen was SO honest, compassionate, knowledgeable and clearly cares SO MUCH for patients - even one he couldn't help there. Dr Chen gave us clear details on where we need to go and who we need to see. We WISH Dr Chen was my partner's oncologist, but we'll go where he suggested. Dr Chen is an absolute STAR is caring for others and REALLY knows his stuff.

Dr. Chen is the first doctor that I have had to treat my antiphospholipid syndrome (APS) that looked for ways to help mitigate problems that are associated with it.
