My experience with Dr. Chien's office was very poor. While the waiting time was limited, the treatment I received from the Nurse at the office was poor. I was misdiagnosed on two separate occasions, and when I expressed my concern to Dr. Chien about it, he did very little to remedy the situation. I rarely write reviews for anything, but I recommend avoiding this office at all costs. There are far better dermatologists in the neighborhood.
Hi, Stephen, sorry to hear about an unsatisfactory experience. Per patients' insurance company policies we aren't able to change plan benefits or patient's financial responsibilities set forth by plans offered by employers. We ask that patients review their insurance plans that they have purchased or selected as an employee benefit.
