Patient Comments (6)
Flushing, NY |
While Dr. Chen was pleasant enough, her medical feedback was generic and her horrendous office staff therefor makes this a recommendation to AVOID. They harassed for payment upfront, swatted checking patients aside, clearly double booked and then shoved papers to be signed that appeared to be violations of information. Rude and offensive.

We first started taking our children to Dr. Chen 10 years ago, when we had concerns about our child's habit of watching tv from as far away as possible or her nose to the screen. She was wonderful. She answered my questions, was gentle with my over-stimulated child, and was able to give us a diagnosis and prescribe glasses. When my second child was born, I mentioned in passing something I had noted about my newborn, and Dr. Chen requested I bring her in on her first birthday. She needed glasses.

Dr. Chen & Dr. Morgan are the best pediatric eye doctors around. You may wait a few minutes in the office because they are busy, but they are worth the wait!
She's takes her time when you're in the room with her. Sounds knowledgeable and easy to talk to. Her office and staff is a different story. They book multiple people for the same time slot so you end up waiting an hour to be seen past your appointment time. What's the point of telling me to be early when you have me waiting there for an hr anyway. Staff is rude on the phones and no different in person.

Dr. Chen is very nice and courteous. She is very knowledgeable and listens to questions and answers them patiently. I trust Dr. Chen 100%. The office staff is sometimes rude, sometimes curt. Trying to schedule an appointment is difficult. Have been put on hold for 15 minutes and had to hang up and call back only to be placed back on hold. Have been overcharged many times but when you call them they cut out a check pretty quickly.

Dr. Chen's office is rude and disorganized. They sent me to collections for a $100 bill for my child's eye exam that they had mailed to the wrong address. I moved 3 years ago and they had not updated their records. We had been loyal patients, but they sent a small bill to collections instead of trying to reach us. Do not take a chance with this office. It is a machine with no personal connection.
