What People Say About Dr. Thomas Chen, MD

My time is so limited and it was such a waste! He could not answer any questions about hormonal imbalances nor give any tips on lifestyle or nurturition — I don’t think I have ever seen ‘a doctor’ more apathetic than him. Don’t know if it is his lack of knowledge or care, but it is time for him to retire and watch TV.

I have been seeing Dr Chen for 21 years., and now my daughter sees him as well. He has always treated me with respect, listening and addressing my concerns, and not ever being over “doctor-like”. Very personable and caring person, as well as knowledgeable.

Dr. Chen is not courteous, cuts you off while speaking so how can he ever attain what's happening fully, presumptive and dismissive. That's his bedside manner. He may be a good doctor, but I'll never know because he only heard half of my condition, assumed really strange things about me that have nothing to do with my care and sent me packing. I've never experienced a more strange office visit anywhere. If he was trying to dispose of me, he succeeded...wow.

Dr. Chen is a great doctor. I regularly go to Dr. Carver, but Dr. Chen delivered both of my children - preemies, and he did a great job.

Although I have only gone in once so far, I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Chen. He made me feel very comfortable to ask questions and made sure I understood the answer before moving on. He did not rush me. He is comfortable yet professional. I would and have recommend(ed) him to anyone seeking gynecological care.
