HIGHLY RECOMMEND! I've seen plenty of dermatologist and he is the best by far! Takes his time and looks over EVERY mole. Does not try to push cosmetics on you like most derms and knows what he is talking about. His staff is very helpful with finding the best deals with Rx coverage (Good Rx is amazing!) and is always able to get me in in a timely manner! I hope this helps!

Left his practice- he was abrupt, wildly inaccurate, and rude. My family now sees another dermatologist with much better results. I once had a mole of concern that he told me was "probably a freckle"- the specimen had to be sent to 4 labs to decide if it was melanoma. Today I requested records because I have re-pigmentation of an old biopsy site. Was told my records would not be sent because I had a balance. I explained this was illegal, so they charged me $58 to send my records to my new doctor

He seems knowledgeable but definitely needs to work on his social skills. He is rude and condescending. Looking for a new dermatologist.

I’ve had facial boils for 10 yrs and have used antibiotics. Dr. Chen was rude and patronizing. I told him I get yeast infections from antibiotics and diflucan helps. He offered a month of heavy antibiotics and refused to write a prescription for diflucan - he doesn’t “usually write prescriptions for that.” When I asked him why antibiotics, he stated, “This is my opinion. You’re welcome to get another opinion, like you would with a financial advisor." I've lost hope that any doctor can help.

Dr. Chen and his staff are great. They got me in right away and pushed the labs to get my biopsy result back quick. His staff went above board to help me. And Dr. Chen was so knowledgeable you could trust 100% what he said. This is one of the best offices I have worked with.

I went to see Dr. Chen in October of 2015. He diagnosis was that this was atopic dermatitis (which I already knew), and he prescribed more Mometasone Furoate, which obviously wasn't working. I was also told to take oatmeal baths. He said this is all he could do. I got another opinion, I was told I have not only atopic dermatitis, but also a yeast and staph infection in my head. I was give a range of steroids and antibiotics. I am now in remission, after 5 months, no thanks to Dr. Chen.
