Dr. Chen, is a wonderful doctor. He is very patient and always listens. He knows your history and is always up to date on what you need. I’ve had cancer for 17 years. My last doctor retired. I am so lucky to have found Dr. Chen. I totally trust him and know I’m in good hands.

Dr. Chen is a consummate professional, kind, caring and patient. He's my Mom's oncologist and explains things so she and my Dad can understand. He listens to HER wishes, and my questions, (also medical professional), and is the best. Thank you, Dr. Chen.

Dr, Chen is concerned about the total patient, not just your cancer/treatment. He is kind and caring and explains options and conditions completely. Always takes time to answer questions.
