I would tell you if he ever showed up! 8 hours in the hospital with a 15yr old girl waiting for him. THEN, after 8 hours, told that he is too busy to come in. : /

Dr Chen did an incredible job finding a solution to my son’s migraines. He took such a wonderful amount of time and never rushed us resulting in a very thorough visit. He answered all my questions and addressed all my concerms. He is also very kind which goes a long way In patient healing.

I'm surprised to see any negative reviews here regarding Dr. Chen - I started seeing him after an emergency incident in which I was admitted to Bridgeport Hospital and have been in his care ever since. He is compassionate, knowledgeable, and takes the time required to make sure his patients understand their condition and is happy to answer all questions (even ridiculous ones).

Dr. Chen is an amazingly brilliant and compassionate Physician. He his very thorough and patient. He explains things in easy to understand terminology and never rushes through an exam. He takes time to answer any questions I may have and does not stop until he gets to the bottom of whatever is going on with me when other doctors would have given up. He’s ABSOLUTELY the BEST!

Amazing! I had suffered with chronic migraines for ten years! Had a migraine almost every day. Since starting to see Dr. Chen last year I had become migraine free and had been for 6 months now for the first time in a long time. He is a life saver :) Warmly recommend him!

He is the best doctor I met in this professional field. He helped me with very serious problem at a dire time. I trust him completely. I recommend Dr. Chen to all my friends and they two have made an appointment and are happy and trust him too. He always tries his best to find solutions for the medical problem at hand and is quite progressive without always pushing medication. I had severe vertigo that was resolved after he did one Epley maneuver on me. Before that doctors only gave me meds.

I was unfortunate to see Dr. Yaniv Chen at Griffin Hospital (Derby) for a neuro consult regarding a serious health event that I had been admitted for. He was the most unprofessional, rude, and condescending care provider I have ever met. Within approx 3 minutes I knew this guy could not be involved, in any way, with my health care and so I unceremoniously removed him from my team on the spot. He is a discredit to the medical profession and I would strongly urge against anyone seeing this doctor.
