    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Never again

I would never make another appointment with him. It doesn’t look like he know the medical terms I said when I was talking to him. He just sat there with this arms closed while I had to keep explaining to him my symptoms. He barely looked over and diagnose me. It was like I have to tell him what I need. He’s not very proactive or sympathetic or pleasant to have as a doctor. I left feeling the same way before I came. He just iterate it. Now I have to go to a different dr to see what is really going on. So never again going to see dr Chen.

$760 for a single visit!!

WARNING BEWARE!!!! If you want to pay outrageous costs then this is the doctor office for you! I went in as a new patient and (per the billing dept exact words) just for talking to the doctor the new patient cost is $760!!! I have never had a doctor visit ever cost that much in my life. Of course there's deductibles to be met but I have never in my past had just one visit that filled up my entire deductible. This is just wrong. The actual office will not tell you what their office visits cost. And when I spoke to billing their exacts words were to google for research the levels of cost/care. I am just in shock. And from what I see in other reviews below, they don't do payment plans either. I disputed the cost and the billing dept called me saying theyre justified for the info he requested in the data base and his "decision making". I guess the dr having me follow his pen in different directions, standing on my heels/toes and sending me on my way with a tylenol rx is justifying enough for them. Just unreal. STAY AWAY!!!
