As an operating room RN, I chose Dr. Chen for my son's wrist surgery based on my direct experience working with him. He is a phenomenal and skilled hand surgeon who is greatly respected by the staff. My son has now healed completely despite falling down a flight of stairs.

I was referred to Dr. Chen for 3 years of disabling hand pain despite multiple injections, bracing and therapy. The staff was very responsive and quickly arranged an appointment. Dr. Chen listened to me carefully. He explained my xrays, all my options, and answered all my questions. I decided to have a joint replacement surgery in January and wish I had done it sooner. My wrist and thumb are now almost pain free. He is very personable and highly skilled.

My son broke his wrist, the Scaphoid bone. We contacted an orthopedic doctor who is highly respected and he recommended Dr Sam Chen at Straub Orthopedic. Our experience with Dr. Chen and the Ortho staff has been truly excellent. When we go, there is little wait, and the staff are very friendly, and efficient. Dr Chen was very personable, attentive, and clear in his explanation of the injury and possible treatments. Surgery to screw the bone pieces together was recommended and we agreed. He made

I am a semi-retired engineer and almost lost 2 fingers from a sawblade accident in my home garage. Thankfully the paramedics brought me to Straub and Dr. Chen. I am now several months after a complex surgery and back to wood-working with no problems. Amazing. Thank you!
