Dr. Chien is such a wonderful doctor, best PCP I have ever had in NYC! He is extremely personable, understanding, very down to earth, and easy to talk to. His staff is very friendly, and I was taken back immediately upon my arrival. I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Dr. Felix Chien was the first doctor I've seen in New York that actually spent time listening to me and thinking through solutions for problems that weren't based on expensive tests or drug prescriptions. He was thoughtful and kind, and I was seen within minutes of arriving. Highly recommend!

Dr. Chien is a wonderful doctor, he is very thorough, really listens to his patients (me and my husband use him) and follows up quickly. We were in and out in about 45 minutes that is with both of us getting complete physicals.

My visit to Dr. Chien was very easy and fast. Both Dr. Chien and his staff were very friendly and efficient. My visit was fast and easy. Dr. Chien was really personable and never made feel rushed. The few things keepingme from a full 5 stars: The intake forms look like they've been photocopied from photocopies a few too many times to the point where they're pretty hard to read Dr. Chien has great bed side demeanor and ended up getting me everything I needed but there were a few times where I had to repeat myself as he would miss details that I had just described to him about my symptoms. An example of the above bled into the referrals for xrays that ended in confusion because he had requested additional areas not related to the pain I had described.

Nice doctor and listened to my concerns well. Very little wait time. I wish the exam room were cleaner. If I required a full exam I would have requested they use an antimicrobial cleaner on the exam table.

He was great. He really took time to check in with me about all my concerns and even took time after some initial testing to speak to me about the possible implications of the results, with clear next steps to boot. So, I was very happy with my experience.

You need to see Dr. Felix Chen!!! Absolutely the best doctors appointment of any kind that I have ever had in my entire life. Actually made me look forward to my next doctors appt. His bedside manner is second to none.He is very knowledgeable and is able to be extremely informative while also making everything easy to understand. He is very personable and also quite funny. I felt like I was just hanging out with a long lost uncle. His nurse is also extremely nice, patient, and personable. Amazing people! I will definitely be back. Never going anywhere else. They are by far the best.

I came in primarily to get some bloodwork done. Checking in was very easy and the receptionist in the front was very friendly. Dr. Chien was nothing but accommodating! I mentioned that my ears were clogged in passing, and he washedit out for me, even though it was a messy procedure. Looking forward to coming back.

The doctor discriminates against government employees using government insurance. There was no compassion and worse he didn’t remember my medical issue and never asked about it even though I am headed into surgery soon.

Dr. Chien was way too busy with his other patients to give me proper care. He was nice but I didn't feel like I was treated with patience or care. There were certain things that weren't fully explained to me andcertain aspects of my conditions were minimized in a very insensitive way.
