Patient Comments (1)
Sparks, NV |
I Would not recommend Dr. Chen, especially for females. I had two appointments with Dr. Chen and felt the issues I had brought to be addressed via acupuncture were blatantly disregarded. In fact, he caused me significant emotional distress. His needling was fine but his bedside manner and unqualified talk therapy was appalling.
