I found Dr. Chen to be thoughtful and attentive to my various health issues. This was not my first rodeo as far as Acupuncture is concerned, I’ve tried several practitioners without a lot of success and I was a bit skeptical of whether it could ever alleviate my chronic pain and various other maladies. With Dr. Chen, I definitely experienced discernible benefits and some pointed, homeopathic tips for treatment. I cannot describe my gratitude for the relief I received and his kind manner!

Linda in Reno, NV – Apr 27, 2018
Dr. Chen is a brilliant and heartfelt physician. I have been seeing him for many years to treat my chronic migraines through acupuncture and have had truly impressive results! His treatments give me more relief than any medication or Botox injections. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Chen! He has an extreme attention to detail, complete focus, a calming nature, always professional and fully engaged in the healing.

Moritz in Reno, NV – Nov 27, 2017
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.
