Dr. Chen's approach to not prescribe narcotic medications, was one of the best decisions ever, the procedure he performs on my spine is amazing and allows me to walk, and get out of bed without pain. I have Scoliosis and Multiple Sclerosis, so I am used to dealing with pain, and am on a lot of medications already, I appreciate a new approach that doesn't damage other body parts. Only downfall, is getting staff on the PHONE, I don't want to leave VM's...

Does not care about people. Refused to help me with my chronic pain due to many automobile and motorcycle accidents and on the job accidents. I've been in pain for over 20 years and he did not care! I cannot take otc meds due to being on a blood thinner (which is very dangerous to mix with otc meds), and he refused to give me the meds that have been proven to help me. I now can hardly even get out of bed and he just doesn't care! I Have multiple herniated discs, arthritis, sciatica, DVT & PE.
