What People Say About Dr. Frank Chen, MD
Reply
Dr. Chen was a breath of fresh air. I had two prior surgeries with another doctor that did not take care of my knee issues. He took the time to listen to me and his follow up was excellent. Dr. Chen was able to do the surgery that got me on the road to recovery! I had the last surgery 6 weeks ago and I'm almost completely back to pre-injury health! I can't say enough good things about him! I would definitely recommend him to family and friends!
