Dr. CHEN LIES TO HER PATIENTS AND GIVES THEM FALSE HOPE, WHEN TOLD YOU WANT THE TOTAL TRUTH BASED ON HER PROFESSIONAL CAREER AND OTHER CASES OF THAT TYPE OF CANCER. SHE DON'T TELL YOU SO YOU CAN HAVE TIME TO GET THINGS IN ORDER AND TO PREPARE FOR THE POSSIBLE OUTCOME. SHE TOLD US THAT SHE COULD EXTEND MY HUSBAND'S LIFE AS WELL AS HIS QUALITY OF LIFE IF HE WOULD TAKE HER CHEMOTHERAPY MIX. WELLHE ASKED FOR THE TRUTH AND NO MATTER HOW GHRIMM, and 5 MONTHS HE NO LONGER COULD WALK AND PASSED AWA

My experience with Dr. Chen was by far amazing. Finding out you have cancer at 40 was so horrible and she knew that. She was the kindest soul I have ever had the chance to meet. She has a soft, kind, gentle spirit that makes everything you hear so much easier. I would recommend her a million times. I was blessed by her being my Oncologist and so will you.

Dr. Chen is extremely knowledgeable in her chosen field. Dr Chen, with Mary Abrahamson , DR of Nursing, has been treating me for DMS and together have kept the disease under control since 2010. I recommend Dr Chen and Dr Abrahamson to anyone needing their expertise.
