Dr Chen is professionally caring and interested in your lifestyle so that you have as much comfort as possible. He is accommodating to your needs and makes sure your medications get to your pharmacy. His administrative staff are excellent. They are personable, thorough and fanatic with scheduling appointments, taking care of insurance issues. Dr Chen and staff is patient first. I had a family emergency and Dt Chen/staff change my in office appointment to a telemedicine visit. So for giving great pain management and responding to side effects of medication, this is the best practice.

Dr. Chen is one of the best doctors that I have gone to for pain. He listens carefully, he respects his patients and staff. Dr. Chen took on a serious problem with me and he worked hard to find a combination of drugs that has kept my pain at a level that I can live with until my knee replacement.

Dr. Chen is a pleasant man. He listened to me closely and explained my situation very clearly and went over my results in detail. He advised me as to what options are available to me for my problem. He did not push any medications or certain treatments. He guided me as to starting slowly and seeing how it goes. I am pleased with how Dr. Chen and how he handled my telecommunication regarding my medical situation.

I've been seeing Dr. Chen and hi yes team for 7 years. Everyone in the office treats me with kindness, concern, and trust. Dr. Chen talks to me with honesty and always searches for additional methods to try to help my chronic 20+ year problems. I value and trust his opinions. He takes whatever time is needed no address all of my concerns. My telemedicine visit last week wit Dr. Chen was reassuring and detailed. I truly appreciate Dr. Chen's time and solutions during this pandemic. The office staff was so supportive setting this up and helping prevent me from needing to go to ER - thank you!

Always a great experience. Dr Chen listens to my concerns, taking his time, always trying to make me feel better through all methods available. He is located far from me but I never found a doctor better than him. They fit me in whenever I have an issue. His staff is great as well!!

Doctor Chen and his medical staff serves their community with exceptional care and service. The entire group really cares about your needs while practicing innovative techniques to meet the demands of their patients. During a worldwide pandemic, the medical team pulled together to deliver safe medical practices through a secure video stream. Their goal was to treat and provide medical service while keeping their patients healthcare at forefront during these uncertain times.
