My husband and I were both treated by Dr. Chen, very pleased with the outcome of our visits. Both of our issues were resolved. Would highly recommend.

I dare you to see this doctor

Dr. Howard specially asked that I review his office and care so here goes... It’s tragic people actually come here to be seen by this doctor. Worst care, listening or attention by any physician I have ever been under the care of. Do not believe me? Go ahead and schedule a visit!

Horrible bedside manner

I am concerned that the recent reviews may have been written by Doctor Chen or his staff. I find it terribly hard to believe that any person actually seen by Doctor Howard Chen would have a positive review of their treatment. Left wondering WTF happened. Paid $180.00 to be seen for metal in my eye, not metal removed, had full exam and was told at the end of my visit “well ok everything looks good” when I asked about the metal in my eye Doctor Chen’s response was “umm hmmm yeah I did not see it - if you would like to be seen in a year or two fill out a post card” I continued to ask him questions but he just walked away. The girl at the front desk apologized and offered to get answers for my questions but Doctor Chen was very rude to her about it. I ended up going to to see the doctors across the way at Arizona Eye two days later as it turns out I had a copper ring in my eye from Doctor Chen missing diagnoses and failing to properly remove the copper shaving I told him was there.

Dr Chen is a highly competent ophthalmologist and surgeon. He is very task focused which can make him seem unfriendly. He is not. He responds to questions with complete and knowledgeable answers. He could be a bit slower in his speech pattern so as to give us older folks a moment to process what he is saying. However, I have complete trust in his knowledge and skills. I also appreciate the easy going friendliness of the office. I feel/felt like a person whose needs were important and that I would be treated as a person. He did cataract surgery on both eyes and the results are outstanding.
