      Dr Chien is very competent and aggressive in his treatment approach (testing, trying out the latest medication. He is communicative and explains things well. However, Dr Chien does not work with doctors he has hired in his practice. If he is covering for other doctors, he insists the patient return to see him, not the patient's own doctor, even if he's only made a small change in medication. Dr. prescribes newest medications, recommending patients pay if their insurance does not cover it.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
