Dr. Chen is my favorite doctor at BSW so far. He's always kind, courteous and cheerful. It's obvious he is extremely intelligent, yet he doesn't talk down to his patients. A very humble, and caring doctor, which is difficult to find these days. Thank you Dr. Spencer Chen

This was my first visit with Dr. Chen, so we are early in the process of getting acquainted. My first impression as a patient was good. I think that Dr. Chen listened well and answered my questions. He made notes of the specific issues I raised. I asked about cancer risk in light of my family history and he gave me a referral for genetic counseling, which I was happy to receive. So far, I am pleased with Dr. Chen.
