    I went to see Dr. Chen today with my mom. She was in a mva in which she sustained a fracture to her L1 transverse process . I agree with all of the wonderful reviews others had written. From the moment he walked in the door I knew this was the doctor for my mom. His bedside manner was excellent and he took the time to explain why my mom was feeling pain and reassured her she was going to be ok. He is extremely knowledgeable and answered all of our questions! I would highly recommend him!

    I came to Dr. Chen on a referral from a friend. Upon meeting him and his staff I was very happy to have him perform a surgery on me two days after our initial consult. He was extremely easy to talk to and was very confident on how to correct my issue. I came to him with a herniated disc, sciatica and drop foot. Immediately after surgery I was pain free in my back and leg. Two weeks after surgery I walked into his office for my follow-up visit as if I never had an issue. I highly recommend!

    Dr. Chen is by far one the kindest, respectful,very competent, doctors I have had the pleasure of meeting . He treated me as if I was a old family member, a cousin, his best friend in college.....do you get my point. The doctor cant be nicer. It takes 4-5 months to find a doctor who you know is going to open your back up and do major work. I began this process in May '16 meeting many types of doctors/hospitals. Dr. Chen performed a spinal stenosis fusion on L4 and L5. I'm very happy

    Courteous. He knew exactly what was wrong in my spine. He predicted the MRI to perfection. Everything was fixed. Can live again. Very thorough. Perfect.

    I was experiencing painful cramps and tightening in my left calf and pain in my left buttock, for app. 9 months. Dr. Chen analyzed my MRI and suggested a Laminectomy/Micro-Discectomy to relieve the pressure on my L5--S1 nerve roots. Surgery was performed, and after app. 1 month, the pain has been greatly reduced, as I am able to gradually resume my daily activities. Dr. Chen and his staff were very supportive and informative, and answered all our concerns. I would recommend Dr. Chen !

    Had lower back surgery with Dr. Chen. Found him to be very professional and understanding. Easy to talk to and explains everything involved with the surgery. Great bed side manner. Have chosen him to do a second surgery needed to complete my problem.

    DR. Chen Fixed me!!! I was in the worst pain of my life my c5-c6 disc was impinging on my spinal cord and causing me to shake 24hrs a day. After the MRI Dr. Chen sat my wife and i down and went over my entire spin explaining to me exactly what i need to have done as well his confidence that he was going to get ahead of this. I went into surgery on a Monday and was walking out on Tuesday afternoon pain free shaking stopped. Words can not express how grateful I am for Dr. Chen and his staff!!
