I had no problem with Dr Chen. He was knowledgeable, had a comfortable bedside manner and answered my questions about my ear. When I attempted to make a followup appointment however I was told that he was no longer in theBronx but was currently practicing in Brooklyn which is a little out of my way using public transportation.

Dr. Leon Chen is pretty good. One thing that I didn't like about the appointment is that he didn't offer the less medicated solution first and only mentioned it when I asked him about it. That doesn't take away from therating though because it falls on the patient to ask the necessary questions.

Dr. Chen and his medical staff were great. Although he did seem a little hurried in my appt with him. I was a new patient. But he did listen to everything I had to say and was nice. He answered allof my questions. I felt comfortable with him. However, his front desk staff could use some help in the manners and professional policy departments. I was told I could not have copies of what I signed because it belonged to them. Yet, all privacy policies entitle you to copies of whatever you want because it is your medical records. And the checkout receptionist withheld a copy of my visit even though she had it printed out.

My visit was to get a foreign object out of my son's ear. The doctor did not care about how scared my son was or the pain he had. The doctor just instructed me to hold son down. I understand thatthe doctor must do his job, but there was no middle ground, no explanation of the tools to calm him down, nothing. The job got done, but the cleaning process was not finished because my son was too hysterical to finish.

Went to see Dr. Chen again because I started having new symptoms. He examined me and recommended I see a GI doctor. He also prescribed a new medication for my allergies. He requested a follow up after I see the GIdoctor to see what is going on. He's thorough and explains everything that he is doing.

Highly Recommended. His office staff are very friendly, and when I walked in he has electronic check in which saved time. Dr. Chen was personable and friendly. He took the time to listen to everything I had to say before explainingwhat he thought, then examining me, and explaining the treatment. It was a minor cauterization and it was taken care of same day, he explained that if need be I can come back in to check up on the progress. Hopefully I don't ever have any future problems, but as long as he is in NYC, this is my go to ENT MD.

Dr. Chen was excellent. He asked lots of questions to start, listened well, and was unusually thorough and gentle in the exam. He clearly knows the medical science and explains it well. I will be coming back to him and recommendinghim. These days I find many other specialists are quick to get you out before they've listened, and are looking at a screen and typing for most of the appointment, even when you're talking to them. Dr. Chen was the opposite of that trend.

Definitely one of the best doctors visits I've ever had. It was my first time there and after filling out the necessary paperwork I was seen right away. Dr. Chen was prompt yet very informative and seemed like he really knewhis stuff. He attended to any questions or concerns I had and even went above and beyond by offering to email me important info about my illness while I will be away.

Amazing doctor. He is Very through with his explanations and was able to address each and everyone of my concerns along with recommendations. He gathers all the information from you and is able to come to a definitive diagnosis with confidence.The front desk staff is also very friendly. I enjoy to see private practices use technology to streamline the registration process.

It was my first time there, the receptionist were so pleasant and polite. The bedside manner was awesome, clean . The waiting time was right away because my appointment was at 2pm and I was seen in 20 minutes after fillingout the paperwork on the tap "not a clip board" which was new and easy to use however. Dr. Chen was an awesome doctor even though it was my first time, my concerns for making the appointment were addressed!! I will highly recommend people to Dr.Chen. Excellent ??!!
