Dr and staff were friendly. The Doctor was thorough and informative. I would go back. My only concern was they had a great deal of walk-ins yesterday which delayed my appointment. I would think walk-ins would get squeezed in between actual appointments.

This was one of the smoothest appointments. The office had all of my information from the Zocdoc app. Mr. Chen was friendly and made things easy for me to understand. I will be back with my daughter soon!

Dr. Chen is one of the best eye surgeon but on the top of that he is very professional, curious and most importantly very friendly. Best thing I like about him that he listens, Gives enough time to me tomake sure all my concerns are addressed. He explains everything in plain English in layman terms rather than in medical Mumbo Jumbo. Never in rush to go to next appointment. The office staff is equally friendly, curious and professional. Out of all mostly I deal with a girl name Nam. She is always nice polite, friendly and helpful.

Went in to find out why the glasses I was prescribed did not seem to provide enough clarity. Dr. Chen was very thorough and patient as he listened to my observations. He diagnosed the problem and provided treatment to help sharpenup my vision. I was pleased he took the time to ask good questions and listened carefully.

It was an hour and ten minutes before I was seen By Dr. Chen. He was very professional and listened to my health issue fully. One thing that was strange to me is the amount of random people coming in andout of my room without at least giving a knock on the door. These weren’t even the doctor or the medical assistant but just other random staff members.

I was worried about the issue with my eyes and Dr. Chen was very upfront and practical about what the problem was and what needed done. Couldn't cover the cost on the 1st prescription he had called in and it tookless than an hour to have a less expensive one called in and done.

Dr. Chen was kind enough to open his office on a Sunday to see me after a chemical exposure to my eye. He immediately diagnosed the problem and began treatment. I followed up with him two days later. Dr. Chen'soffice is a clean and beautiful facility with modern equipment. His staff is very professional. Dr. Chen is experienced, knowledgeable, well-trained, and very thorough. I am very glad to have found The Chen Eye Center. It is worth the drive from Decatur. Thank you!

I went there to get a second opinion on cataract surgery. The appointment time was not initially set up to include certain tests. Instead of making me come back again Dr. Chen worked hard to squeeze me in. I appreciate thatvery much. As busy as he was that morning he spent time talking to me and answering my questions. I actually got to see the doctor not like the other big place where the doctor came in and walked out in less than three minutes. I could only talk to an optometrist.
