Patient Comments (2)
in Westchester, NY |
Dr. Chen performed glaucoma surgery on my daughter - 1st eye at 9 wks old, the second at 13 wks. We met with a couple different doctors that specialized in pediatric glaucoma and felt confident Dr. Chen was the right choice. She did extensive observation and tests before recommending a course of treatment and wasn't overly quick to suggest surgery (hence the wait for the second eye), trying first a series of drops, etc. We come from NY to see her. We're thankful for Dr. Chen!
Was recommended to us by a provider we respect and she lived up to the expectations
