Doctor Chien was late for my consultation (fine, it's New York, stuff happens), spent my visit bragging about his experience treating others (I certainly hope you're experienced!), insisted that my physical activity of choice is dangerousand that I should just jog instead (I lift weights - not the first time someone's tried to erroneously tell me this though so I shrugged it off), and told me that he would be able to give me one refill on a prescription I take but explained that any further refills would need to be prescribed by a psychiatrist (understandable, if a bit frustrating - I've been taking this medication for over five years without a single problem and my previous PCP would take care of all of my refills, so having to find a psychiatrist on a marketplace healthcare plan when I work 50+ hours a week, 7 days a week is a tiny bit frustrating BUT I can understand the logic, even if I don't necessarily agree with it). I called his office earlier this week to request a refill on said medicine after unsuccessfully trying to find a psychiatrist through my network, and was told that the refill would be submitted that day. It turns out that Doctor Chien never intended on giving me a prescription refill at all, and all I've been left with is a shrug and a "Sorry, he said go to a psychiatrist" from the front desk. I'd like to think that I'm a pretty understanding person, and have bitten my tongue many times when it comes to leaving this sort of review on any platform - after working in high volume retail positions for many years, I acutely understand how one poor experience isn't necessarily representative of a whole body of work, so to speak. What I don't understand is why Doctor Chien felt that he could tell me one thing and then go back on his word, effectively leaving me hung out to dry. I'm not sure if I can trust a doctor who can't sufficiently explain his reticence to, y'know, help his patients. I bear no ill will towards him as a person; however, I plan on finding a new PCP.

Office is simple and clean. Dr. Chien took his time to listen to me and explain his perception of my health. This annual physical was less hands-on than previous physicals I've had at other offices. Not saying that's good or bad, just different than I expected.

BEST PHYSICAL EVER. I didn’t have to wait, Dr. Chien was so kind and listed to all my concerns. He explained exactly what he was doing and why and made me feel so comfortable. Took so many tests (EKG, Lung test)to get an idea of my health which I really appreciated. Going back to him forever or as long as I can!

Dr Chien is a good doctor but his bedside manner could really use some improvement. We had limited time to discuss my health issues, yet Dr Chien spent a majority of this time very repetitively covering things I told him Iwas very familiar with from previous doctors and experience. He "loves the sound of his own voice" and didn't listen to me or let me get a word in as he rather condescendingly told me at length about what constitutes a healthy diet and exercise. As a result, he ran out of time and many of my other health concerns were completely passed over. I walked out with a didactic lesson that I could have read anywhere, but no specific medical expertise on several other issues I was having. I would have gladly spent more time covering it all, but the doctor had an appointment following mine that he seemed extremely anxious about getting to. He had kept repeatedly trying to wrap up our discussion and get out of the room despite the fact that I had other questions. As a result I feel a little shortchanged and I can't strongly recommend him.

Believe the hype. Dr. Chien gave me the best annual physical I've ever had. Virtually no wait, with tests I'd actually not had before for a physical (like EKG). Even drew my blood himself. Everything unrushed and thorough. He spent alot of time with me conversing about my health and wellness goals and worries. I will say I was put off a bit by the location at first, as it's in Chinatown. Wouldn't want to intrude upon a community by taking time away from one of the doctors that caters to them. But the clientele there was quite diverse, in case whoever reads this has a similar confirm. In any case, I'll definitely be back.

I think Dr. Chien gets it. It’s so hard to find a doctor in NYC that is willing to take some time to listen to your concerns and questions. He and his office were very quick in following up with meafterward on the phone when another issue popped up- it seems like no big deal, but try getting the actual doctor at another office to speak with you on the phone... not gonna happen! Thanks Doctor! G

Zero wait time which was great. Doctor was professional, although I had to listen carefully as he seemed unable to move his jaw and spoke between his teeth. Medical assistant/receptionist was nice, although I'd recommend they update theirforms with larger print and clearer font. Office could use some decorations to make it feel less like a temporary space they just moved into (maybe some art on the wall). Zero wait time was amazing though ... given the general 1-2 hour wait time for doctors in Chinatown.

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.
