What People Say About Dr. Franklin Chen, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I was referred to this group by the Emergency Dept at JFK Hospital. I sustained multiple fractures in my left arm after a work accident. Dr. Chen was my surgeon and followed my progress for several months after my surgery. I found this practice to be excellent. The entire staff is effective, professional and pleasant to work with. My appointments were always on time and Dr Chen was excellent not only in his surgical proficiency but also his bedside manner. His communication was thorough and answered all of my questions to my complete satisfaction. His support staff provided excellent care and documentation was complete with all necessary scripts and work excuses. Highest recommendation.

I never had a broken bone. I was very upset when I recently broke my wrist. When I went to EMOG I was seen by Dr. Chen. He immediately put my mind at ease. He explained the treatment plan and how long it would take to regain full function. I left confident and much less concerned about my injury

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.

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!
