Terrible experience with him. He explained to me how important it was for me to receive a MRI to help diagnose my problem. However one week prior to my procedure, his office called to tell me it was canceled because the insurance approved but DR. Chen refused to do a peer to peer with them. He then dismissed me from his office. It is clear Dr. Chen does not truly care about the well being of his patients. He refused to take 2 minutes to help me. Terrible treatment.

Dr. Chen seems to believe that the human body is a static biological entity and likes to base his prognoses for serious ailments off of a single datum point from a blood test. For a serious prognosis, he sent a letter basically scaring me to believe I had a serious problem with my liver, when in fact he should have asked for a followup blood test to confirm the abnormality. Of course, my liver is completely normal. This doctor demonstrates poor social behavior and is not recommended.
We regret to hear of your unpleasant experience with us. We encourage you to contact our office to schedule an appointment to discuss your results. Please know that you have the option to request for a different provider in our group if you wish to do so. We sincerely appreciate your feedback as we strive to improve your experience with us.
