I just met with Dr Chen.. waited 10 months to approve an appointment. .that was from the insurance company.very nice and professional. Didnt have surgery yet.carpal tunnel syndrome. Hopeing he can take me out of this horrible pain. Looking forward to being pain free. Everyone at his office is friendly and professional. I am looking forward to finally being painfree. The pain is going up my arms to my shoulder. I will get back to everyone once im finished with this medical journey. Feeling possitive he will get me out of the excruciating pain. So far so good. I WILL DEFINITELY GET BACK TO YOU SLL ON MY RESULTS.
â¢ Overall, poor experience. â¢ Waited outside in the reception hall for 1 hour. â¢ Waited inside the exam room for 15 minutes. â¢ Needed to fill out about 8-9 pages with my name on each page. â¢ It is difficult to describe the whole history on questionnaire they give to fill out; I expected that the doctor would ask history himself but he did not. â¢ Yet, just based upon the papers I filled out, he came with a diagnosis and right away started to tell me about the operation he was going to do. â¢ The examination was very brief and hardly convincing. â¢ He did not explain the reason etc. about the problem I went there for; when I asked questions, the nurse gave me a sheet to read for each question/issue I asked. â¢ The approach of the doctor, especially to a new patient, was neither friendly nor compassionate. â¢ He may be a good technical surgeon but I decided not to go for surgery with him as I could not establish good confidence in him as a doctor and expert professional.
I had a delayed scaphoid fracture found by him. He was quick to see the symptoms and suggest X-ray and MRI. He gave several options of treatment and i was really happy to be treated with a cast and bone stimulus even though most doctors and him wanted a surgery right away. I would say he is a doctor you can speak with and get a treatment plan that works for you.
