Patient Comments (3)
in Rochester, NY |
It was odd reading other reviews here. Dr. Chen has always taken as much time as I've needed with him - even when they squeezed me in because of my work schedule. He's always answered any questions I've had and has explained any research I brought in that I had questions on. He's the one that explained/is treating my low Vit D and about the research that is currently going on about it. I'd definitely recommend him.

He simply didn't listen to me or respond to basic questions. I didn't need hand holding, but getting him to say anything was nearly impossible. He didn't bother mentioning (or treating) my deficient Vitamin D levels, why bother testing if you don't care? When my symptoms were at their worst, he tried cancelling my appt, & then made me wait 4 month's claiming they were triple booked. @ that appt, he accepted a walk in pt during my exam. &he wasn't triple booked, he was just a liar.
in Rochester, NY |
Dr. Chen was absolutely rude and accusatory toward my doctor who referred me for elevated rhumatoid factor test. He said it was not concerning and did not even ask me how I felt or what was wrong.
