Dr. Chen removed a cataract on my right eye, he is an excellent surgeon , caring, attentive skilled doctor. He gave me back my sight after suffering with poor vision for years. I highly recommend him without hesitation .

He's very good at what he does, which is eye surgery and probably anything dealing with your eyes. I had all the confidence in the world knowing he was performing my cataract surgery. The good thing about Dr. Chen is that he also does eye exams. I have friends that are going to 2-3 doctors just for their cataract surgery. I highly recommend him and his office. Lynnette always has time for your questions. My husband and I got real luck - found him on the internet a year ago!!

I brought my 83 yr old mother with cataracts to see Dr. Chen. He is patient, takes time to explain everything and does not push expensive enhanced lens or even surgery on his patients. I was very pleased with the promptness of the front office answering the phone (no automated phone system, a live person always answers). Lynn is very knowledgeable regarding health insurance plans and she goes above and beyond to provide a warm and welcoming environment

I had cataract surgery by Doctor Chen. I was very happy with the out come of my surgery and my vision. I would also like to brag of the front office gal!!! Lynn made the entire experience stress free, and I knew that any questions or concerns I had I could call her with and she was kind, sweet and patient. Honestly, I think the doctor did good surgery, but he lacks people skills, and he is not very approachable. Lynn made up for that with her caring and understanding nature.

I started seeing Doctor Chen in April 2015 for my glaucoma. Doctor Chen was extremely thorough in explaining the course of treatment he thought best for me. In July of this year, Doctor Chen performed cataract surgery on my husband and my husband was very happy with the results.

He's professional and he's good. He removed cataracts from both my eyes June, 2016, and I couldn't be more pleased.
