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.
