Dr Chen is fine. Nothing extraordinary about her office. Her RN however has such a terrible judgmental tone about everything she says. I was literally so uncomfortable everytime she came into the room. I must admit everyone has a bad day so I'm giving her the benefit of the doubt, however I do have a follow up appointment in a few days. If she acts the same way, I will not be returning. My health is something that I do not play around with & my copay should go to someone who is going to treat me with decency and respect.

I have been to Dr Chen's office twice in the past month. The first visit went well. The wait time was approximately an hour but the receptionist apologized for the wait and assured me it was out of the ordinary. I was there for an annual physical which went fine. I also had a form that I needed certain lab tests performed in order to complete. Dr Chen ordered the tests for me, no problem. I did, however, have to request all other routine blood work to be ordered as well. One would think that she would have wanted to order these routine tests on me since I was a new patient for her. Anyway, I thought this visit went fine. I had to return to Dr Chen's office 3 weeks later to have her fill in two lab values on my form and to have her sign it. I was told I would not need an appointment.When I was called into a room, the medical assistant began taking my vitals and weight. I stated I was merely there for a form to be completed and that I had just been there for an exam 3 weeks prior. The MA insisted that I needed all of the routine assessments again. I declined because I did not feel I should be charged another co-payment. The MA then retorted that Dr Chen would need to go over my blood work with me so this would be considered a billable visit. I told her that was not necessary and I would simply like my form filled out. The MA then snarked "well you have a UTI so she HAS to go over it with you". This is when things turned bad. First of all, an MA is NOT qualified to diagnose a patient based on lab results. That duty is not even in the scope of practice of an RN. Second of all, she was incorrect. Third of all, if she was correct, it would have been 2 weeks since I took the urine test at the lab. It is not acceptable practice for a provider to wait 2 weeks to notify a patient that he/she has a UTI. After everything, I paid the co-payment and left. I will definitely NOT be returning to this office, mainly because of the unprofessional MA. I also felt it was a bit of a scam to charge me the co-payment again.

Dr. Chen was very thorough and addressed all of my concerns. I didn't feel rushed at all, and mine was the last appointment of the day. Her assistant was very knowledgeable about what my insurance covered, and offered tests that I didn't even realize I could get. I felt very taken care of. Dr. Chen is also very friendly and a good listener. I'd recommend her, and already have! This was my first visit, but I will be returning next year or if I get sick.
