Dr Chen is an experienced doctor who actively engages with her patients to get the best diagnosis. She identified a potential illness which I never thought I would have. Immediately, she requeste the blood work within next month to track the test result.  Due to the fast results, she immediately referred me to the specialist. After performing a multiple procedures, the cause of the issue is identified. I am so lucky to have Dr. Chen to be my PCP and found out the potential issue within first appointment. She is an awesome doctor. I will refer her to my friends and colleagues.

I am not sure if Dr. Chen or her office staff is worse. I have never experienced a doctor that takes such little interest in her patients. On top of that, her office staff acts as though the patient is a burden when trying to refill a prescription or make an appointment.

After years of abdominal pain I suspected my gallbladder (she tried to convinced me it couldn't possibly be it). I insisted on exams & I was in surgery soon after. The surgeon found large stones and sludge, in which he said he didn't know how I managed so long. A different time I lost my ins. coverage but fell & bruised my back. She advised me NOT to get an xray while charging me nearly $300 for the advice. Pain got worse & is now chronic, bc after 3 days at hospital, MRI showed a bulging disk.

She is the worst doctor I have ever seen. She does not listen to your concerns and will only prescribe a medication to address symptoms, with no care to identify the root of the issue. She has a very negative attitude. I found out my friend was also a patient of hers and she complained of the same - bad attitude, zero concern. Hurry up and wait. I am so glad I am no longer a patient of the entire medical group. Anyone with a serious health concern should look elsewhere.

Very smart Doctor who listened. Unlike another primary doctor I tried she immediately know the potential side-effect (impact on liver) and suggested monitoring liver enzymes twice/year rather than yearly.
