Nearly pathological lack of empathy. Also not a problem solver. Dr. Chen has no interest in working with you or listening to you to find solutions to your pain issues.

I had a terrible experience with this doctor. She refused to listen to my "story", that is, my reason for seeing her. Instead, she seemed to have her own agenda and gave advice that had little to do me. I also found her to be cold and unempathic, not what I look for in a doctor. This entire pain clinic seems to suffer from a "one size fits all" mentality, and unless that is the sort of treatment one is seeking, I would recommend avoiding this pain clinic, and in particular, this doctor.
