I can't thank him and his staff enough for all they do for me. If you ever need someone for pain treatment, medial botox, pain stimulators or pumps and much more check him out. What a caring place to be.

Dr.Chen is my angel of mercy..He has helped me to regain a big part of my life.I was in alot of pain and barely able to walk. He's patient and actively listens to my concerns. He works diligently to help me achieve my goals. I'm able to walk daily,sleep better, and I've lost weight. His staff is one of the best I have worked with. They are warm patient and empathetic.

This man is one of the best doctors I've ever met. He's super knowledgeable, trustworthy and he's helped me a ton over the years. I cannot stress how much respect I have for him and how he's treated me (literally) over the years.

If this review is based on Dr Chen and dr. Chen only five stars. He has done several injections on my back and shoulder and I've had great results. During office visits he takes his time to hear you out and answer all questions you have. For the first time in many years I now have very limited lower back pain all because of Dr Chen. He's now working on my shoulder to get the same results. About some of the reviews on his office I do have to agree but Mr. Chen 5 stars hands down.

Terrible doctor. Very unprofessional and downright rude. See someone else. The fact that I was able to get a same day appointment, and the waiting room was empty was a telltale sign that this is NOT the doc you want to see. His response to every question I asked was I wouldn't know how to treat you.

Dr Chen assisted with two separate issues - slipped disk in C4/C5 and chronic headaches at C1/C2. Both issues were addressed individually and I have been healed for 1.5 years now. Very happy with Dr. Chen and his staff.

Had two injections. They did not work. Lots of upbeat talk. Skip this and go right to a neurosurgeon.
The worst experience ever!!! Got cortisone shots before even Dr. saw my MRI. After the shots the pain got even worse. I called the office, I emailed them , no one ever called me back. No one called me about my MRI report either. Since no one cares about how I feel I canceled my next appointment using top pains website. Looks like no one recieved my messages again. Soon I started receiving text messages confirming my next appointment that I canceled weeks ago. Worst customer service ever !!!
