He is wonderful. I truly feel he cares about me and my health.

I have chronic back pain because of the bad disks in my spine. As a result, It has been difficult for me to live a normal life like most people. Dr Chen is very professional in his approach to pain therapy and understands what I have been going through. I highly recommend his services and staff if you are dealing with chronic pain. A++

Dr. Chen has been treating me for my cervical and lumbar spine bulging discs, and now my knee and neck. Dr. Chen and his staff are very accommodating for their patients and Dr. Chen especially really takes time to talk to you and go through your treatment options. The front office staff are really nice and always are there to help when I call. I would highly recommend him to anyone who has chronic pain because he will do his best to get you pain-free.

in Dallas, TX |
I was pleasantly surprised when I went to see Dr. Chen, what an outstanding doctor! It's rare to see that anymore, most of the time you feel like just a number, or another face in the crowd. Not with him, caring and knowledgeable. What a great staff, very kind and helpful.
in Arlington, TX |
My visit with Dr. Chen was such a wonderful surprise, a doctor that actually listens to your questions and concerns. He was so understanding and has a wonderful bedside manner. I recommended him to a family member immediately. Wonderful caring staff!
in Decatur, TX |
I had lost all faith in the medical community at large. I felt as if I had been relegated to a statistic and placed in a catagory that no one wanted to even try and help any longer. Then, only by a what I deem as a miracle, Dr. Chen and I found each other. For that, I can only thank God! For the first time in many years someone was listening to me. He is healer that is proactive in all aspects of my care. Physical, mental and emotional. He treats me a s a person. Not a number!
in Irving, TX |
Dr. Chen is absolutely the greatest!! Takes the time to talk to his patients and really listens to your concerns. His staff is so friendly and helpful. This office goes the extra mile!
in Dallas Tx. |
Dr. Chen is a very caring and knowledgeable physician. He made me feel like I was important and answered all my questions. His staff was also great. The environment was clean and comfortable. They did a good job at making me feel at home. I would highly recommended Dr. Chen to my friends and family.
Dallas, TX |
This doctor thinks that he is more important than his patients. He will leave you waiting in his office for over two hours when he isn't even there. They also don't return phone calls or voicemail. They will leave you more frustrated and distressed than when you came to the office. STAY AWAY!
in Plano, TX |
This what happened to me and my opinions only. This doctor does not care about his patients. He like the path of least resistance. When you really need him he will fail you. If you upset him he wont fully treat your pain. He will talk down to you like you are 3 years old if you upset him. If you don't believe me just schedule an appointment and try him for your self. The first meet will seem great then you will see what iim saying.The staff are either great caring people or mean & cold hearted
Dr. Chen is a fantastic pain management specialist! He is both professional and kind. He takes time to listen and genuinely cares about the well being of each patient.
