I am a recipient of two corneal tissue transplants, referred to Dr Chen about 18 months ago for an eye infection caused by my hard contact lens. He and his awesome professional staff worked tirelessly to successfully treat and save tissue transplant . I would recommend Dr Chen and his staff to any and all individuals seeking a corneal surgeon.

I have been Dr. Chen's patient for more than four years. He is very professional and takes time to explain everything thoroughly. He is clearly highly knowledgeable and keeps up with current developments in his field. I am very confident in his skills as an ophthalmologist. Both he and his staff are friendly and make patients feel very welcome in his office.

Best ophthalmologist I've ever been to, and there were several from my age 12 to now 67. Incredibly efficient office - staff, procedures, etc. - I've *never* had to wait past my appointment time. Dr. Chen is incredibly well-informed about his specialty, latest medical info/news, best approaches to all my eye conditions/vision issues, and has always provided the highest standard of care. Several problems I had were resolved by his care, and my corrected vision is the best it has ever been. A++

Dr. Chen is a consummate professional. He is incredibly detailed, and absolutely takes all the time necessary to do a thorough history and physical examination of your eye, and any recent concerns, whether they seem to be eye related or not, as some times things that don't appear to be related can all go together. His staff is professional and polite, and works very hard for him. A sure sign of a good boss and a good person. I would recommend this office to everyone I know.
