Dr Chen has been my Dr for about 7 years. I was originally given an appointment with him because I didn't have a preference of doctors for the issue I was having. I am so thankful to have him as my Doctor as he always listens to you and explains symptoms and medical issues thoroughly. I have had multiple bad experiences with Doctors in the past just wanting you to get in and out... With Dr Chen there have been multiple times he has gone over over the allotted appointment times, because he is taking his time to ensure all your concerns are addressed and well explained. 10/10

Dr Chen is a wonderful doctor who is smart, 20+ years experience, listens to you, excellent bedside manner, no nonsense kind of doctor. He is at Baylor Plano part of Dallas Diagnostics group. Example: I saw him because my other doctor was not available. I had another UTI which every time it happened I had to make appointment and go see doctor to confirm and get a prescription. Dr. Chen said: You know the symptoms of a UTI, there is no need to come in every time. Let me give you a script for a supply of the medicine. If you feel like you have a UTI take medicine for 3 days, if it doesn’t clear it up then come see me. Common sense medicine, I wondered why my regular doctor didn’t do that. I switched myself and my husband to him as our primary doctor and he has always provided both of us with excellent medical care. He listens to you as the patient which a lot of doctors don’t. My other doctor was good, just not as experienced and experience is important when you are a senior.

Dr. Chen is very honest and fair in my treatment. It's in great part due to his own personal health and exercise discipline and great condition that I made myself get heathy by loosing all excess weight and getting off almost all medicine. I'm still working hard to get off statin completely but I remember his honest statement that may not be genetically feasible. He reports that I'm one in 20 and some years 1 in 100 who really follows my Dr's instructions to take better and better care of myself

Dr Chen should be cloned a million times so that everyone knew what a loving doctor looks like. The reason I'm here today is because of him. He's outstanding and words cannot express how grateful I am for this doctor.
