Professional Statement

Internal medicine is my passion. I truly enjoy the spectrum and complexity of diseases and I find excitement and satisfaction in diagnosing, treating and providing care for my patients. My solid knowledge base and strong medical research background enhanced my clinical skills, allow me to pursue my commitment to provide comprehensive care to my patients. I like to take my time to talk to the patients, listen to them, answer their questions and make them feel comfortable. Most of all I enjoy caring for them.

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.

Usually the wait isn't long but today was quite busy and my visit was only ten minutes. I waited two hours and I wasn't happy. I will be sure not to make an appointment on Mondays.

She did nothing to ease my pain but give me some type of medication to try that did not help me at all. When I called the office to let her know the medication she prescribed did not work and I cried myself to sleep and I was told she will not give me any other type of medication because of the abuse other people had with pain killers. She gave me a script to see a pain management specialist also on the date of my visit. The receptionist was awesome, I think her name is Kim but I will not return to that office anymore. Time to look for another PCP.

One of the very few doctors (possibly the only) that actually takes the time to listen to a patient. I never feel rushed, and I feel comfortable with her (and her staff). There's a sincerity about Dr. Chen that you don't quite often find within the medical industry, so I highly recommend her.

The front desk misinterpreted (perhaps user error) my ZocDoc scheduled time. It wasn't a problem in the end though because I was promptly offered an alternative time that worked for me, and my experience at Dr. Chen's office was very efficient, friendly, and straightforward. Would highly recommend!

Although patients were waiting Dr. Chen made me feel like I was the only one there. Although the physical was not very physical, Dr. Chen addressed my current health concerns clearly and in depth. She explained the labs I was being sent for and I'm confident I'll hear back if anything is wrong.

This was my first visit here - I booked an annual physical - and I really liked the office and the doctor. The office is located in a small house in a quaint neighborhood, so it really feels like you're going to a neighborhood doctor instead of a business. Dr. Chen is very much of the 21st century - she keeps digital records, and she sends prescriptions electronically to your pharmacy (no slips). I'll have more to say when I see her for a sick visit, but she seems great.
