I went to see Dr. Chien for a skin rash that I have been getting intermittently for years and have never been able to figure out what the cause is. Dr. Chien is the first dermatologist to actually run tests totry to determine the etiology of my rash as opposed to just prescribing steroids. He had a very compassionate and empathetic bedside manner. He listened to my concerns regarding curing my rash prior to my upcoming wedding. He returned my call on the weekend to help m resolve an issue with a prescription. I've never met a more personable and caring dermatologist and would highly recommend him. The only down side is that he has limited hours, however there are other physicians in his office who also sound quite competent.

Dr. Chien took a look at my problem and decided how to be treated. It was efficient and professional. As always he was very friendly and nice. I was seen immediately after I completed all the paper works. He gave additionaladvice for the other problem he identified. Previous medication he prescribed for me works great too. I am so happy to find Dr. Chien for my dermatology needs.

Dr. Chien appeared very uneasy during my consultation and almost half asleep. As I was explaining my skin concern, he interrupts me mid-sentence and excuses himself to grab and pen and notepad. Within a minute of explaining my concerns, he didn'thesitate to prescribe me medication (without an end date) instead of finding out the cause of my skin irritation. I asked for tests and he explained there could be so many reasons that blood work cannot tell. As I insisted he then provided a list of labs for blood tests as he doesn't do them at his doctor's office. Dr. Chien was polite and soft spoken but visit with him was quick and lacked compassion. The only good thing about this visit was the professionalism of the front desk receptionist and his assistant. They were great. Unfortunately, I would never recommend this doctor.

I went to urgent care about a rash and they said it was some kind of foliculitis and jock itch.. WRONG. I was suffering for like a month and finally decided to go to an actual Dermatologist. After visitng with Dr.Chen.. boom! Problem solved, he took one look and determined it was a kind of Dermatitis and prescribed the right meds. Once they ran out I called and he refilled the prescription and also prescribed an even better working med. I was able to go on vacation without constant itching..thank god. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend him and will always return for my skin issues.
