I've been seeking dermatological care for close to 20 years. Over the course of that time, I've probably seen over 15 different dermatologists. I never found one I truly connected with - it was always in and out and onto the next one. About 3 years ago, I was recommended to Dr. Chen. Long story short, I haven't been to a different dermatologist since. Not only is Dr. Chen extremely knowledgeable, she truly cares about her patients. She's more than just a doctor - she's a lifesaver! A++ rating.

Very professional. Outstanding bedside manner.

I had a very bad experience with Dr. Nancy Chen on 1/22/16. My child appointment was at 1:00 pm but she showed up at 1:40. She was believed to speak Mandarin very fluently(look at her online profile) but turns out that she could only order foods in a Chinese restaurant! That is a big misleading to the patients! She does not seem qualified to deal with a child patient at all and my child was feeling very bad and hurt after seeing her! Be extremely cautious to send your child to see her!
