What People Say About Dr. Yung Chen, MD
Reply
I have been seeing Dr. Chen for the past 10 years for shoulder pain and lower back disc herniation. He and his staff are extremely caring and I am thrilled to report that after I had platelet-rich plasma treatment in my shoulder last year, I have been 100% pain free.
