The outfit over there at EMOG is like a well oiled machine or a well tuned orchestra. From the moment I walked in I was treated with the utmost respect and dignity from the young lady at the intake desk to the nurse who was in the exam room with Dr. Chen. (I wish I had gotten everyone's name) When I was leaving the lady at the make an appointment desk was polite and very professional. Dr.Chen was excellent! He discussed my issue and explained it to me fully. He took the time to speak to me on a level I could understand. Dr. Chen was straightforward and personable in that I was able to relate to him. Most importantly he treated me with respect and looked me directly in the eyes when speaking to me. I would recommend him to everyone! Thank you Dr. Chen and Associates! Dave N.
Dr Chen and his team were again informative and helpful. I was relaxed enough to tolerate the pain of injection. They were both helpful and answered my questions completely Thank you Dr Chen
November, 21, 2017 Dr. Franklin Chen is an excellent orthopedic surgeon. He is personable, knowledgeable, and takes the time to discuss with the patient the courses of action available. His years of experience and.professionalism place him in the top doctors I've met. Having had occasion to use Dr. Chen's skills three times in twenty years, two for carpal tunnel surgery on both hands, and currently, for injuries I sustained in a fall., he is methodical in his approach to care, and does not rush into performing surgery. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Chen as one of the best doctors in his field. Mark B.
He's been taking care of me for about 5 yrs n recommended him to all my friends including my wife. He's patient friendly, very thorough and put you at ease. I love the way he counsels you on your injuries and gives you outstanding and understanding advice. He's THE BEST!!!
Very professional, explains everything well and with extreme patience. Great doctor!
Dr. Chen provided us with understandable information about the injury my son received. He even sketched out a picture of what happened to make the diagnosis more clear -- something my son really appreciated. The doctor took seriously my son's desire to return to his team as soon as possible and his concerns about schoolwork.
Dr.Chen is definitely the physician to see if you have any problems with your hands. He listens to you. He explains everything to you. Best of all he doesn't make you feel rushed.
My visit went well, I'm very grateful that I had such a wonderful surgeon.
Dr. Chen is a wonderful doctor. He is kind, respectful and always very polite. I would highly recommend him.
I would highly recommend Dr. Chen to any prospective patient. Dr. Chen is a highly respected, professional, and very personable doctor. He takes the time to explain everything to a patient and makes sure all of his patients questions are always answered. I cannot recommend him high enough! I never met a physician and a surgeon quite like Dr. Franklin CHEN!
Reviewed my EMG results and performed office tests for my ulnar nerve post surgical status. Gave me his honest interpretation of my condition. Not really what I was looking for but miracles do not happen all the time.
Nice doctor, spoke clearly and concisely, made a potentially painful procedure fairly painless.
Excellent visit. Very professional staff.
Explained what my problem was and how he was going to remedy it, very courteous and professional. Would highly recommend
Awesome, kind, receptive, and most importantly Professional...
I saw Dr. Chen for the very first time on June 6th 2016. I was suffering from severe ulnar nerve entrapment, Atrophy, and clawing of my fingers. He saw the severity of my situation and came straight out and told me that I had to have surgery. He was very honest with me and told me that the damage was so far gone that I may not ever fully recover even after surgery. He schedule my procedure on the 10th of that same week. It's now August 17th and with Physical Therapy I have had a significant amount of improvement. It is because of him that I have no doubt that I will in time come very close to fully recovering. Before my surgery I was a mental wreck, crying a lot because I thought there was no hope. Thank you Dr. Chen. You are nothing less than five stars in my book. Paula J.
Financial Department is. It not to profecional. My insurance cover boot for my leg and the financial department say not

I've been to Dr. Chen once before, very nice Dr., easy to talk to, and explains in detail so you understand what is going on.
Dr Chen was so patient and compassionate. He fully explained things to me in a very comfortable manner. I highly recommend him.
I was very pleased with the doctor..and the whole staff.
Very efficient and professional. He described all the problems with my injured right ring finger and told me in detail what to expect during and after surgery.
I immediately felt at ease with Dr. Chen and Nurse Flo. The doctor was very reassuring, professional, and thorough. He carefully explained things to me and answered all my questions. Flo was patient, caring and supportive. I'm so glad I found them.
Dr. Chen was friendly and professional. Would recommend him to anyone looking for help with a sports related problem.
The office didn't have any of my paperwork even though I filled it out online, but I printed everything so it was easy to fill out when I got there. The staff was very nice and the doctor was very personable.
God Bless this doctor who will make my life right again. He works almost miracles. WONDERFUL !!!!! He diagnosed and set up a plan within minutes. Extremely efficient and knowledgeable.
The check-in process was less than stellar. I did the pre check-in on ZocDoc to avoid the rxtra paperwork when I arrived at the doctor's office, but of course they did not have it or could not find it, so 15mins later, I am paperwork free again :-( then into the room to wait for the doc and answer questions again, of course the same question I just spent 15mins answering of the paperwork that I didn't need to fill out... Smh, get with the technological times people!!!
Very satisfied with Dr. Chen. He kind and caring. Have seen him for different issues, always happy with his care. I def recommend him as well as the entire practice! Thanks for the great care that receive!
