Verified Patient Reviews
good doctor, professional but friendly
She takes her time. Explains any answers to questions asked.
I've been going to Dr. Chen for a few years now. She's attentive, highly professional, and extremely knowledgeable. Moreover, she doesn't rush through visits, which has been my experience with previous PCPs. A bonus is that the facility on W. 14th Street is clean and the staff at the facility are quick, efficient, and professional.
I love Dr. Chen and trust her pragmatic judgment. That office on 14th st. has been going through some difficult changes with the take-over by Mt. Sinai but all seems well again, and Dr. Chen is great as ever, if overworked (not her fault).
I have been seeing Dr. Chen for several years. She is knowledgable and friendly, however she often seems in a rush so I don't always have time to ask all of my questions.
I've been seeing Dr. Chen for a couple of years and she's always patient, professional and helpful. She's pragmatic but never judgmental and it's a combination that's got me the treatment I needed.
Intelligent, down-to-earth, gentle bedside manner. Listens well, great memory, calls with lab results. Have recommended her to colleagues.
Great doctor I would definitely go back!
Although I did have to wait around 20 minutes the staff was extremely apologetic and kind and it did not seem like that type of wait was the norm. The nurses and Dr. Chen were kind, and put me at ease immediately. They answered all my questions and made the appointment easy and helpful.
Gave good advice. Was intelligent and respectful. She listened carefully and the general staff of the place were professional and helpful.
Dr. Chen is very attentive and made me feel comfortable throughout the visit.
Fantastic! She took the time to good over thigs with me in a detailed manner. Lovely doctor, with a brilliant bedside manner.
She is a sweet lady and a true professional. My daughter loves her and she never rushes you and answers all of your concerns.
The office staff was friendly and efficient. I was 15 minutes early to my appointment so I could fill out all the necessary forms. Dr. Chen was very friendly and helpful and efficient. I would definitely recommend her.
She's open and understanding, not quick to dismiss you from your appointment. She take time out to answers all questions and explanation if needed...
She is wonderful-- she makes you feel very comfortable, she is down-to-earth, she is extremely thorough and knowledgeable. I would recommend her to anyone! I'm so happy she is my new doctor in the city.
Dr .Chen is very professionial; answered all my questions in detail and called me promptly with results of bloodwork.She in no way seemed rushed and was willing to spend as much time as necessary answering questions.
Dr. Chen is fantastic. She is VERY thorough in her explanations of why symptoms are caused, preventive measures, and her diagnosis. I feel like I get my value out of my visit every time I see her. She is calm but to the point and straightforward. I am so lucky to have found her in the city, as doctors are very difficult to find that give you more than the time of day during your visit. I love her so much that she will be our baby's pediatrician when she is born in August.
Dr. Chen is very caring and understanding. If you think something is wrong she will go out of her way to do whatever tests necessary to rule out health problems. The wait time is very quick but she spends the necessary time to make sure you are ok.
She is the best, Really difficult to find a MD who cares and takes time in NYC. Really Really good !
Doctor Chen is a lovely person who does her best to listen no matter how busy the practice is. My whole family sees her.
Dr. Chen was nice and thorough. She talks very fast but I feel like all NY doctors talk like this. She did however repeat herself several times on certain matters and gave me a summation of what we went over at the end so that I understood all the issues and how to improve my general well-being.
Very professional and very present. She's great.
Dr. Chen is the absolute best, seriously. Her manner is warm, friendly, and engaged, doesn't act like she's doing you a favor or is only giving you half of her attention. Her craft seems to be honed to a high level of professionalism. I can't recommend her enough, but don't everyone rush to have her as your doctor or she may become overworked and lose some of her sterling qualities!
Dr. Chen was very personable and friendly. She took the time to answer all of my questions and explained everything to me. She was extremely helpful and even brought a sense of humor into the exam room. It was a very pleasant experience. I've had doctors before who were very ego driven but she seemed to genuinely want to be helpful.
My doctor left practice and this was the new doctor who took over for her.
She and her staff are amazing! Dr. Chen is always thoughtful about answering my questions and addressing any medical/health concerns I have and she puts me at ease. The office always seems really clean and friendly.
From one visit it is easy to see that Dr. Chen is an incredible woman. I'm a 23 yr old recent college grad. I was very nervous seeing a doctor for the first time on my own but she is extremely professional and gives great advice. My appointment was later in the evening yet she didn't rush. So happy to find a great Doc in the city!
I was very impressed with Abigail and had a pleasant experience.
Dr. Chen was very friendly and it felt like she truly cares about her patients. The nurse who initially met with me was very personable as well.
Efficient, affordable, pleasant
Great, very thorough, knowledgable and caring. Willing to go above and beyond to look into chronic health issues.
She listened. She was thorough. She took the time to explain why test needed to be done, drug needed to be prescribed. She is very easy to talk to.
I like it .She is very professional.
Great visit, walked away very happy with my new doctor.
Dr. Chen was very nice and patient. I was a first time patient and she took her time going over all of my medical history and getting to know me. Highly recommended. Also - no wait time!
Dr. Chen was great, but her staff was so/so. I handed them my paperwork when I walked in and they somehow lost it immediately, then claimed I never gave it to them. I had to spend most of the appointment dictating my medical history, etc. to Dr. Chen so she could put it in the system herself. The nurse and Dr. Chen complained about the front desk staff to me. Apart from that, Dr. Chen was very thorough and helpful.
She is excellent!
Excellent Doctor-Knowledgeable and very efficient-she goes right to the issues involved.
Dr. Chen was great. I was a first-time patient, and she made me feel extremely welcome and comfortable. I had a list of questions, which were answered thoroughly.
Dr. Chen was amazing. She patiently listened to the health concerns I had and offered clear, helpful advice. Very happy to have found a great doctor in a clean, professional office in Manhattan.
Dr. Chen is terrific.
Me and my 17yr old absolutely fell in love with her immediately. Very professional and explains everything in detail. Great bedside manners. Paid attention to every detail and was very kind and patient.
I would highly recommend Dr. Chen for your primary care needs. She is very thorough and easy to talk to. All of the front office staff and nurses were also a pleasure to work with.
She is wonderful--efficient but friendly, and asks all pertinent questions. I can tell that she is very busy, but she does not give the impression that she needs to hurry on to the next patient. I had all my questions answered thoroughly. Looks like I've found my new PCP!
She is an exceptionally caring, thoughtful, intelligent, doctor. Love her!
She was very good. Very attentive and and knowledgable.
Really nice and great bedside manner. Asked lots of questions and was willing to listen to concerns. I was also impressed with the medical facility. Clean, modern and even though I was a new patient, I was in and out fairly quickly.
Dr. Chen is professional , thorough personable and in my 35 years as a health care provider I was impressed with the time she took, how thorough she was and her manner is amazing!! I feel thrilled to have found her!!
Dr. Chen is always so helpful, smart, knowledgable, nice and friendly!
Excellent, very pleased!
Very friendly, informative. Staff was great. Made my daughter feel very comfortable, even with drawing blood.
Went for a general check up and the Dr. was very easy to talk too and thorough. Staff was helpful and nice
She is a great doctor. Very thorough, nice bedside manner. She even gave me tips on how to find a lower price for my prescriptions.
very patient and professional
Dr. Chen was great. She made me feel really at ease, and I look forward to seeing her again in a couple of weeks.
Dr. chen was very informative and I felt very comfortable and confident with her.
I met Dr.Chen for the first time recently after seeing Dr.Eisenberg at the same practice, who I loved. Dr. Chen was just as good. She was friendly, prompt, and has excellent bedside manner. I was in for my annual physical, but more importantly was there to follow-up with my blood pressure. I was having some side affects with the meds. Dr Chen took her time during the physical and asked a lot of questions. I took a blood test and Dr Chen left me a detailed voicemail with the results, which I really appreciated. I think I found my new PCP.
The staff and the doctor were professional, Respectful, courteous and pleasant .
Friendly, courteous, professional, thorough. So glad Beth Israel took over that location, too, it was fetid and floundering under St. Vincent's. Newly renovated facility, computerized records; a huge improvement.
Great doctor. Really listened to everything I had to say and answered my questions in a very thoughtful way. Virtually no wait time, I was taken back to the room a few minutes before my appointment time and she saw me a few minutes after my appointment time.
Very professional and my annual physical was treated with attention, not a 5-min rush. Dr. Chen's explanations were informative and thorough. The office staff was also very friendly and professional. I appreciated that the office felt like a clinic, and not a trendy coffee shop that some doctors' offices attempt. Will definitely choose Dr. Chen as my primary physician and potentially my future pediatrician for my family!
I switched my pcp. I was looking a long time. I think this is a starr ofa bbeautiful relationship.
Everyone was so pleasant and accommodating from the front desk, to the nurses, the administrator and of course the doctor. After I filled out my paperwork I was seen right away. I liked that the doctor personally called me the next day to let me know my test results. They also have 24/7 on call docs and walk-in. I think the best thing is that they have evening appointments so I can go after work.
Liked her. She's my PCP and will recommend her to others.
Dr. Chen was very personable, knowledgable, helpful and made me feel very at ease. I highly recommend her!
She was very good and pleasant to deal with.
She was prompt, courteous, knowledgeable and very helpful!
Dr. Chen was great. Friendly, professional, and thorough. She listened carefully to my conerns, and took the time to explain everything. I especially like that she emphasized the importance of having a follow up visit soon to see how I am doing on new medication.
Dr. Chen was great. But ZocDoc has incorrect information about her schedule. I made a 9:30 appointment on ZocDoc, but Dr. Chen never sees patients before 10:00 AM on Tuesdays. So, since I got there early in order to fill out whatever forms might be necessary, I had to wait 40 minutes for the doctor. I was upset and told the front desk to make sure the information on ZocDoc is updated. There is no reason for this kind of miscommunication. I was late for work and risked getting a parking ticket as a result of this snafu. But it wasn't Dr. Chen's fault.
Dr Chen is personable and knowledgable
Top notch doctor, very professional, kind and engaged with her patients.
Dr.Chen was wonderful - I've found my new primary care doctor! The wait time at the office was the shortest I've ever experienced and everyone was extremely professional and efficient.
Dr. Chen is very explanatory and she makes u feel comfortable!! ?
Very professional, yet warm. Little to no waiting time.
She is really nice and friendly. Took the time to answer any questions I had and gave me all the options for care so I could decide what would work best for me. Her staff was really nice and friendly as well. I highly recommend her!
Unfortunately this doctor only prescribes medication on a per-use basis. Meaning, if you need 30 pills to get you through the month (daily), that's all you'll get for the prescription. You will have to refill or see the doctor everytime you need a refill (no matter if it's a chronic or daily condition). So, plan for A LOT of doctor's visits.
