Brooklyn, NY |
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.

I don't know what some people are talking about this doctor is very unprofessional he did not introduce himself when he entered the room he did not explain anything he was doing and then he prescribes me medication I am allergic to and as far as the front staff they are very unprofessional they are very loud and obnoxious one you have a problem with then they are not very kind to you and them are phony i
