GO ELSEWHERE!!!

Staff is horrible, disorganized when it comes to scheduling. You make appointments and they NEVER follow through and what is worse is they cancel your surgery the day of your surgery without any decency to let you know ahead of time. Dr. Chen cancels surgery when she feels like it. I WOULD NEVER recommend Dr. Chen and her office to anyone.

Poor surgery result

Dr Chen seems nice, but lack of necessary experience, resulting in poor surgery outcome. The staff are not well trained, thought they are are trying to help. If you want a Dr who is knowledgeable and can give you a good result, look some where else.
