Dr. Chen explained the type of surgery I would have to remove the acoustic neuroma affecting my hearing, balance, fatigue and nausea. He and his team were amazing and even though I knew I would lose the rest of the hearing in my right ear, I felt I was very well taken care of and treated by the best staff during my short hospital stay. My follow up care is on-going and I am blessed and fortunate that Dr. Chen will continue to assess my condition.

staff says they sent exam to pcp but didn't. when questioned further they didn't even know how to reach the pcp which means they lied when they said they sent it the first time. sandy is also very rude on the phone. no manners. no apparent interest in helping. just want to say anything they can to get you off the phone. go elsewhere.
