Christine Chen provides good care. However, at least one of her frontline staff is rude, inappropriate, and serves as an impediment to providing an adequate quality of overall care. Although I discussed her frontline staff problems months ago, the staff behavior has not improved, and represents a lack of adherence to basic principles of staff quality of care and customer service. I am a health systems consultant, and see this as a serious weakness in her practice.

1.5 years ago, Dr. Chen saw our 90 year old mom, just 2 weeks from the urgent request from our PCP. Dr. Chen has worked incredible kidney function miracles to do whatever necessary to lower blood pressure and control water retention with meds and help alleviate worry and concern about issues beyond our control. As a patient, Mom loves her, respects her and follows her instruction. Dr. Chen has allowed us, caregivers and children, to keep Mom comfortable at home. Thank you, Dr. Chen!
