I am so glad that I chose Dr. Chen for my colon surgery! He was able to perform the surgery using the endoscope when I had been told elsewhere that this would not be possible. He was very professional and patient with any of my questions and needs. I am healing faster than I thought possible. Overall a vet positive experience.
