Wonderful Doctor

I really like Dr. Chen and his staff. I cannot say that about every doctor I have been to. They are prompt to get me an appointment; I do not wait an hour in the waiting room as I have at other doctors. Dr. Chen listens, explains, and yet is efficient at getting to the heart of the matter and coming up with a solution or action plan. I highly recommend this little office.

Definitely recommend to friends and family members!

Dr. Chen is very knowledgeable and professional. He listens and explains well. My elderly parents have been seeing Dr. Chen for many years and they refuse to see anyone else! I was impressed with Dr. Chen when I drove my parents to his clinic. The parking was great, the office was well organized. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I am so glad that mom and dad are well taken care of. Now, our entire family goes to Dr. Chen! I would definitely recommend him to our friends.
