What People Say About Dr. Dean Chen, MD

Dr. Chen put my hip replacement in and everything went smoothly. I advanced home from post surgery physical rehabilitation within 10 days which is almost unheard of. I never had any infections or problems with the incision. His team is great. They push you to get stronger and improve your mobility post surgery. He has a special gift and I give him 5 stars. Top notch.

Dr. Chen performed surgery 12 years ago on my knee, which I'd messed up playing basketball. I was unable to put weight on my leg when I first went to see him, and now here we are many years after the procedure, and my knee is still going strong. Even though I've put thousands of miles on it, hiking and running....no problems since then. So I'm very grateful for the work he did.

Dr. Chen is a skilled surgeon. He did my first knee replacement, and the experience had been better than I had hoped it would be.

After just a few minutes into listing my symptoms and concerns, Mr. Chen bruskly cut me off and asked why I was there. I was abundantly clear I was there because it appeared I had dislocated clavicle and wanted it resolved. When I reminded him of the reason for the consult, he impatiently informed me I should be in no pain (although this was not so), told me there was nothing that could be done, and insisted it was something I'd just have to live with. Very bizarre interaction.
