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.

I settled for an appointment with Dr Chen because the Doc I was referred to was not available and I was having an issue with my knee. His only solution was Cortisone Shot. I told him I had a bad reaction to a Cortisone shot I had in my shoulder and he said that doesn't happen with him. WRONG!!! 2 hours later, my knee blew up like a balloon and the pain was WORSE than childbirth. I can take pain. I had 21 hours of hard labor without a blink. This was so bad I had to get to the ER on a stretcher. Oh, I called Dr Chen to tell him I was having pain and he accused me of having an anxiety attack. AND did he ever call to see how I was doing...On the contrary. He wasn't even available to the ER docs to find out what he did so very wrong. Stay so far away!!!!!!
Dr. Darwin Chen Review
Self-verified patient of Dr. Darwin D Chen - Posted on April 8th, 2018
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.

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!
