Houston, TX |
Dr. Chen may be the nicest doctor I have ever encountered. She is extremely knowledgeable and takes time to explain your exact condition as well as a course of treatment. She offers tremendous advice as well on preventative measures. Overall, I cannot think of a better dermatologist in Houston to see.

She is not only a one woman show, she is also one of kind too. Don't be thrown off by her unconventional texting ways, her work is not a business it is a mission. Very professional and personalized service. I have no hesitation in recommending her for her specialty "Surgical Dermatology".

This is a Doctor that actually cares about her patients. She does very thorough exams and always asks about your concerns. She is also an excellent surgeon should you need anything removed. Once you visit her you will never want to see anyone other than her.

Wonderful Doctor! Such a people person her bedside manner is terrific and she completely answered all my questions and never made me feel as though I was pushing her for time. I would highly recommend her.

Best experience I have ever had with a Doctor
in Houston, TX |
Dr. Chen is a one-man show in her office so be patient. The recording for her line tells you to text and they will reply, it was strange, but it was the best way to make the initial contact. When she called me back (less than 24 hrs) she asked lots of questions about my concerns to assess if I was good match or if I would be better served elsewhere which I really appreciated.

I was referred to Dr. Chen by a family member. I found her website, and sent her a note. I was surprised and pleased when she called me on Saturday. She asked me about my problem, made an appointment for me the following week, and asked me to text her pics of my insurance card. I found her new patient forms online, printed and filled them out. When I had problems getting my referral, she was very positive and flexible. The appt. was a breeze; 3 different skin problems removed, no pain.
