What People Say About Dr. Wenliang Chen, MD

My recent open surgery for hernia repair went very well. He has operated on me 4 times now since 2007 and I would not hesitate to book an appointment with him should the need arise again. It is difficult to find a Surgeon of his caliber who is personable and easy to talk with as Dr. Chen.

Dr. Chen performed a general surgery on me years ago that left me with permanent pain and disfigurement. This guy is a butcher. DO NOT GO TO THIS MAN FOR ANY MEDICAL PROCEDURE.
