"I cannot say enough about my examination at Dr. Chen's medical facility. From scheduling the appointment to his medical technicians it could not have been more professional. Dr. Chen put my fears at ease about my eye condition and explained all aspects of what conditions I have. He did not rush my examination and took the time to make sure all of my questions were answered. I have all the confidence in his ability and feel I am in the best care that is possible."— Patient of Dr. Chen's
