Going to see Dr. Chen is not worth your time. Made a appointment with her and she keep saying that she does not know what is wrong with me. All she told us was to drink a lot of water and change diet. After the second visit she said that she would give him a diet plan and we still do not have it. The ladies up front are not friendly or helpful. They never return your phone calls. We are finding a new Dr.
