He’s wonderful, up front, takes his time,
I wanted to say something about Hannah in the office. I needed something from my medical record on a Friday afternoon, Fourth of July weekend. She didn’t put me off, she took care of it right away and it took up a great deal of her time. She is a true care giver and puts the patient first as does Dr. Chen. I would recommend him without reservation.

Poor Service. Don't return calls. Terrible!
I met with Dr. Chen and he diagnosed me with a hernia. He explained procedure. i asked what brand mesh device he would use. Dr. Chen skimmed over that and did not answer. When I scheduled the surgery, I asked again who was the manufacturer and the exact mesh device that was going to be used. They said they would call back. I made 3 more calls and finally received a call back with the generic Answer "Barton". This manufacturer makes many different mesh devices. I then asked to re-schedule my surgery to another date and they said they would call back. Never heard from them after 3 more calls. I had to be referred to another Doctor's office from my primary care physician and go through the surgery consult again. Don't use this doctor!

Dr. Chen was called into the Mercy Folsom E.R. in the middle of the night when I was being admitted for a blockage in my small intestines. A CT Scan showed that emergency surgery would be necessary and Dr. Chen came to the hospital immediately and got me into surgery as quickly as possible. I had never met him before and I was scared and in a great deal of pain. Dr. Chen explained what was happening and showed so much care and compassion. I highly recommend Dr. Chen, and I feel so fortunate that he happened to be on-call that night. Because he is such a good surgeon, my difficult surgery had an excellent outcome and no complications. Besides his surgical skills, he’s just a really nice guy with a great bedside manner.

Staff was very nice. Dr. Chen Presented nice and knowledgeable however After surgery I was left with a lump in my abdomen of which he could not explain. He Got quiet when I asked. Ordered a CT scan and never heard from him after that. My primary Was shocked when he saw my stomach. I don’t think I will return to Dr. Chen should I require another surgery in the future.

Had gallbladder surgery about 10 days ago that was highly successful. Dr. Chen has a most calming demeanor that exudes confidence. He constantly asked if I had any questions and was always a good listener. I am very pleased that he was my surgeon and I highly recommend him.

My husband recently developed an intestinal perforation, it was a complicated case with several additional challenges. Dr. Chen was his surgeon, and our experience with his care was phenomenal. Dr. Chen answered every question, visited my husband's hospital room daily, and provided all-around excellent care. My husband's recovery from surgery has been excellent, we have Dr. Chen to thank for such a great outcome.
