Patient Comments (1)
in NY, NY |
It was very difficult reaching to receptionist to just make an appointment to see the Dr., the staff aren't professional being that this is for cancer patients. The average wait for the Dr. is about 2 hours, when the doctor see you, she only spends 5-10 minutes to go over the reports, there isn't an email or a phone number that you can reach the doctor outside of your visit, she only gives you her assistant phone number. Dr. Chen isn't caring and detailed with her patient, i wouldn't recommend.
