    Dr. Chien is thorough, kind and generous with his time and attention. His diagnosis and treatment is researched, deliberate, accurate and effective. HOWEVER, having him regularly treat you in person requires an additional subscription price NOT covered by medical insurance. Otherwise, you are seen by a nurse practitioner, who he supervises. Good care if you trust an agent between you and your doctor, instead of real time dialogue and hands on by the most qualified... Dr. Chien.

    I was disappointed when after two years of seeing Dr Chien, he said that he suspected that I had mini strokes. He had never mentioned this before and when I inquired, he said " we all have to go somehow". The office moved from a professional building to a blue multi-family-type complex with a handful of parking spaces. The phlebotomist was a no show so the office assistant offered to draw my blood! My other Doctors have called for lab results and they say that no one answers the phone.

    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.
