Dr. Chen took the time to explain, then answer all my questions, her exam was thorough and complete, checking for signs of potential problems along the way. We are now talking about cataract surgery, and she is conservative but responsive... willing to wait until I get frustrated with the blurriness, halos and so on rather than pushing me to get it done now. I so appreciate her approach to caring for me. And, her staff are fabulous!
Dr. Chen not only has great credentials she is one of the best eye doctors in California. She is conservative, but really knows her field. She explains everything to you so you understand and even though she is so busy, she takes the time so you don't leave without any of your questions answered. She did cataract surgery on my husband. It was scheduled and a week before the surgery she personally called our home and said that my husband had lasik surgery some years ago and she would like the report from the lasik surgery. She said that people who have had that surgery do not want to wear glasses and she wanted to make sure when she removed the cataract that he would not have to wear glasses. We have both had wonderful experiences with her along with some of our friends. If I moved away, I would drive back to see her as my eye doctor.
