My 86-year-old mother has been going to Dr. Chen for 10 years now. He has done both emergency and scheduled procedures on her; from broken knees, arms and hips, to scheduled surgeries such as knee replacements. As her daughter, I have been impressed by Dr. Chen's knowledge, excellent bedside manner, and most of all, his compassion. He explains her conditions and the corrective actions he has taken THOROUGHLY. I now drive almost 100 miles to see Dr. Chen for my own orthopedic needs.

Dr Chen and his team are absolutely amazing! They are first class! I had a bad fall and broke my collar bone and needed surgery.First of all, I couldn’t find anyone to see me for at least a week, keep in mind, my bone was shattered and I was in so much pain! He made time for me... after he had a long day in surgery,he still saw me even tho they were closed (4pm). In other words, he cared about me and went the extra mile. His bedside manner is amazing as well as his staff!!! A true professional!

I moved here from Dallas three months ago with chronic knee pain. I have seen four orthopedic surgeons and have had arthoscopic knee surgery during the last 10 years. I researched surgeons on this website last week and chose Dr. Chen, even though his office was 50 minutes away. I called and was welcomed as a new patient; an appointment was scheduled within four days. My visit was exceptional. I received immediate and effective treatment for my pain. I will definitely continue seeing him!

Love, Love Dr. Chen and his wonderful staff. The staff has been so easy to work with, especially with scheduling appointments and making me feel at ease. When meeting Dr Leo, who offer an alternative to surgery, he won my loyalty and respect. I had three fractures last year and was lucky enough not to have had surgery. I would recommend this office to anyone. .

Dr Chen is an excellent surgeon, or was until he got the current office staff. Once you get past them and to the doctor, he is wonderful, but his office staff will harass and embarrass you about money until the point that you have to change doctors. If you don't have all of your co-pay cancel your appointment, you will not be seen anyway. The new front office staff is rude and uncaring. Even though I was having a lot of post op problems, I was denied my appointment.

My experience with Dr. Chen practice was not any that I have every experienced. The whole staff is professional, caring, and know what they are doing. I was very satisfied with Dr. Chen knowledge, mannerisms and concerns on getting me well. I will always remember how welcome the staff made me feel. It was like I was part of a family. Very dedicated staff and I will recommend Dr. Chen to everyone I meet. Thank you so much Dr. Chen and staff. You're one of the best. Sincerely, Kelly Crowson
