Dr. Chen and his staff were very friendly and professional. Each visit was very personable and thorough. You can tell right away how much he cares about his patients because he will take the extra time to make sure you are comfortable and answer any questions/concerns you may have. I bring my whole family here because I wouldn't trust anyone else! I would definitely recommend him!
I have been to numerous ophthamologists and really appreciate my experience with Dr. Edwin Chen. I was actually 20 minutes late to my appointment but he still saw me without any wait. He and his staff were extremely friendly and made sure all my questions were answered so my visit was perfect. He explained all procedures, presented multiple options, and gave professional advice on everything related to my eyes, like the effects of wearing contacts, symptoms and preventing infections, and information on how my particular lifestyle effects my sight. I left with confidence knowing that I can trust Dr. Chen with my future visits. He da bomb.
I was referred to Dr. Chen by a friend and I was very pleased with my treatment there. My wait time was short and his staff was very friendly. I felt my exam was thorough and he made sure to answer all my questions & concerns. Many doctors have great credentials but Dr. Edwin Chen has it all--He went to Stanford, he's very professional & knowledgeable, but above all else he truly cares about his patients. No matter what time of day/holiday, if it's an emergency I can count on him to be there. You couldn't be in better hands! It's very important to find a doctor who you feel comfortable with and can trust--after 20 years, I have finally found one!
