Dr. Chen is a great doctor and was able to explain my eye issues and the need for surgery with no problem. After that appointment everything went downhill. I spoke with the surgery center regarding my upcoming surgery including my deductible and co-pay and learned I could not afford the surgery at the time. I cancelled the surgery with the surgery center explaining why. Since then Dr. Chen's office has charged me $250 for a surgery no-show fee and will not remove. Office mgr never in office...

Destiny & Michele are wonderful! I've seen multiple doctors for an ongoing eye problem without success. I also have an immune system disease that affects my whole body. I was scared & inwardly frustrated. I spoke to Destiny & then to Michele. I cannot express enough how kind, compassionate & helpful theses ladies are! They both took time to listen & answer my questions. Both are very professional. Dr Chen came in with a smile, was personable, explained his plan & gave me a diagram to take home.

While I was waiting for the doctor, a young woman came in and signed the appointment book indicating an appointment the same time as mine. After reviewing the calendar, the office staff informed her that she was not scheduled. She was outwardly disappointed and upset. A staff member remembered the young woman calling to inquire about an appointment but did not actually make one, but the office staff managed to schedule her for a little later that day. I also was impressed with the doctor.
