very professional,
in Edison, NJ |
I highly recommend Dr. Chen. He recently did surgery on my hand for a tendon problem that caused my finger to curl in, I can't remember the medical term for it, but it had become troublesome. Dr. Chen was knowledgeable, easy to talk to, and gave me two solutions to correct it. He explained both, without showing his own preference, and I chose surgery. It's a little over a month later and I'm very happy with the outcome. My finger is straight, I have no discomfort...he did a great job.

Dr. Chen is just wonderful! Never over-diagnoses. Does the minimum treatment required. Is an absolute pleasure! Very skilled. I highly recommend him!!!!

I cannot say enough positive about the EMOG, but especially Dr. Chen. The office staff is very friendly but Dr. Chen is the best. I had a bad fracture that required immediate surgery. Dr. Chen took the time to throughly explain everything prior to the surgery. I required several post operative follow ups, and never felt rushed during any of the appointments. Dr. Chen always took the time to answer my questions. He is the best!
