Wonderful Doctor

Dr. Chen performed a robotic-assisted, prostatectomy on me after I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2014. After the surgery I did not experience any problems with incontinence. The pain from the surgery was surprisingly tolerable and I did not suffer any permanent loss of function. I just had my third year checkup and am cancer-free thanks to Dr. Chen's great work.

Prostate Cancer Treatment

I have been a patient of Dr. Chen's since 2015, when he operated on me for prostate cancer. Dr. Chen has been very involved in my care, encourages your questions and answers them in a professional and caring manner. He maintains an open dialogue - I have been able to call Dr. Chen and ask questions during my recovery and have found him to be most patient and available. During my post surgery visits, Dr. Chen continues to be open, frank and provides options to any topic discussed and I have never felt rushed during office visits.
