We have been a pt of Dr Chen's for 6 mos and find his knowledge is good. He is a very conscientious Dr and puts a lot of time into making sure of the diagnosis and treatment plan. He works closely with our optometrist as well.

BEST OPHTHALMOLOGIST IN SAN DIEGO

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.

Best Ophthamologist in San Diego

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!
