What People Say About Dr. Leon Chen, MD

I went to see Dr. Leon Chen yesterday for a few reasons. I have been experiencing headaches and some discomfort inside my nose. I was also concerned about possible hearing loss. Dr. Chen investigated each of my complaints by giving my a comprehensive check-up that included additional tests for my ears and my nose. I really appreciated how much time he took to listen to my concerns and also administer additional tests. I was given a prescription for my nasal drip and plan to see Dr. Chen again soon. The most efficient doctor's appointment I've had in a while.

I was seen by Dr. Leon Chen last month, and it was honestly one of the best doctor visits I've ever had. Dr. Chen made me feel comfortable and took his time to listen to all of my questions and concerns. He made it a point to explain everything thoroughly and made me feel well taken care of. He was extremely personable and easy to talk to. Dr. Leon Chen is an all-around amazing doctor. I went in feeling anxious and nervous, but left extremely relieved. I will definitely be returning to see him in the future.

Dr. Chen could not have been more condescending or dismissive of my concerns. I went because I have been having constant throat infections (like 8 this year). He told me it was not infected and that what he saw was just tonsil stones, although It was streaked with white. He actually laughed at me when I told him I get high fevers after a few days, and did not even take my temp until asked. Sent me home with nothing and I had to go to urgent care the next day with 103 fever and severe pain.

I've been seeing Dr Chen for my ENT issues for the last several years and have never had a problem with him. He is plain spoken and knowledgable about whatever ENT issues I have had. I also did not have to wait a long time for him once I was in his office.

Maybe he was having a bad day, but he was extremely rude and dismissive. When inserting that tube + camera up my nose caused uncontrollable sneezing, he was mad at me!! Only later (and after developing a sinus infection after Dr Chen told me to 'tough it out') I went to another ENT who sprayed some lidocaine before inserting the tube so he could actually and peacefully examine my sinuses, I realized what a bad experience I've had with Dr Chen

Dr. Chen was distracted and inattentive. He also wrote me the wrong prescription (!!), so I had to go back to the pharmacy I'd just been to and pick up something else.
