Compassionate, empathetic, and knowledgable

After my husbands partial knee replacement by Dr. Bronson, a deadly infection occurred and Michael Bronson asked Dr.Chen to take over. Dr. Chen has been treating him and although there have been setbacks he has always made himself available to me and my family. We are confidant that Dr. Chen has and will continue to give my husband outstanding care. Annette Schwartz

Outstanding

My mother had a recent total fight knee replacement that didn’t turn out so well. Dr Chen took action and did a great job in performing surgery and thanks to him, my mother is able to walk well again after 2 years.

Above and beyond

My mother had a bad fall a few months ago and broke her hip. By chance, Dr. Chen was the on-call surgeon. We are so thankful for this! He walked us through the details of the surgery and his team took great care of her. She was able to have her hip replaced the next day. She's back to full function and living on her own... amazing since she's 86! My only gripe - Mt Sinai's ER is way too crowded.

Dr. Darwin Chen Review

As a healthcare professional I was extremely impressed with Dr. Chen’s level of expertise, unhurried office visit and, through explanation of my condition I chose Dr. Chen as my surgeon to perform my total hip replacement. He did an excellent job. His support staff went out of their way to help me through the pre op process. Post op Dr. Chen was just as engaged in my recovery. His support staff are friendly, warm, and made my office visit a pleasant experience. I highly recommend Dr. Chen and thank God for a superior , gifted surgeon as well as a speedy recovery.

Five Stars

I was pretty skeptical visiting him initially (he looks young but is impeccably trained and very experienced). My co-worker insisted I see him despite already having my knee surgery scheduled at HSS with another surgeon. After just a few minutes in the office with him and his PA, I felt very comfortable. They treated me like a person and not just a number! Dr. Chen spent a lot of time explaining the surgery and what to expect. When I had my surgery, Mt Sinai was excellent and treated me well. My knee feels great now and I am back to full activity. After my surgery, I later found out from the hospital staff that Dr Chen is well known at Sinai for his technical skill and has treated many employees and fellow doctors. Good sign!
