      I owe my life to Dr. Chen. I can't thank him enough for staying the course and supporting my family in assisting them in making the most difficult decisions that resulted in my new lease on life. This all occurred in the E-R at Orange County Global Medical Center in Santa Ana. Appreciatively yours, Gary Shapiro

      The office staff is incompetent and rude. Dr.Chen has changed his accepted insurance. I spoke to his office the morning of my appointment to verify insurance. They said all was fine. When I got there I was told that they no longer accepted my insurance and I would have to pay the full amount. Dr. Chen says he will be right back and never returns to the exam room - this has happened 2 times. I leave feeling that my questions have not been addressed

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
