Dr. Chen was very professional, personable, and informative.
Everyone in the office was professional and kind. Dr. Chen speaks in layman's terms, so you do not have any difficulty understanding him. X-rays are taken in this office. I had to get an MRI, they were able to schedule it on the same day of my appointment.
Dr. Chen was all that I expected. He was professional, patient, and answered all my questions. I chose Dr Chen from a list of many (GHI) list. However, I was so impressed with the positive feedback from previous patients I overlooked the fact that he is a hip and knee doctor not shoulder. Nevertheless, Dr Chen looked over my MRI and explained to me the results. And in fact referred me to another Orthopedic doctor. I highly recommend Dr. Chen.
He was very nice and professional. He did suggest a more conservative approach to treatment which I am following at this time.
