Dr. Chen is very caring and attentive doctor. My 89 year old father really likes her and enjoy his visiting experience with her. Dr. Chen is very responsive, getting back to patients with test / exam results promptly and move on the next treatment step efficiently. What makes my father the most comfortable is her caring and attentive spirit and her patience in answering all questions. Thank you, Dr. Chen.
Dr. Chen is very kind and caring and really takes time to listen to the patient. I never feel rushed or cut short during an office visit with her (as I have with many doctors). Her expertise in acupuncture and alternative medicine is also appreciated. Dr. Chen is very accessible and I have no difficulty getting an appointment on short notice when I need it. She is also very punctual;I have never had to wait in the waiting room more than a couple of minutes. Dr. Chen's office staff is exceptionally courteous and efficient. I would highly recommend this medical practice to any of my family or friends.
