Great Dermatologist for Acne Scar Treatment!
5 out of 5 stars Botox
Dr. Chen is an excellent, super professional, and very kind doctor who will put you at ease by answering all of your questions, explaining your options, and then letting you decide what is best for you. His personality is really kind and not superficial (which is hard to find in this field.) He doesn't push unnecessary products or services, but always let's you decide what to do. And even if I'm not a doctor myself, I also do appreciate how he is very patient and walks me through all my questions about the procedure. I was really nervous, but after going to Dr. Chen, I can say you are truly in the best hands. He is knowledgable and just looking at his credentials, he is one of the smartest doctors out there (but he is very humble and you wouldn't know about his accomplishments in medicine unless you looked it up) but the reason I choose him over other doctors is I know he is honest, reliable and really wants to help his patients with their goals. Hope this helps for those of you researching, thanks! :-)
5 out of 5 stars Accutane
He was recommended to me by my mother. Dr Chen was recommended to me by my mom. I had acne since I was 13 years old and nothing was helping me. He was SO helpful, and I cannot thank him enough. I will always go to Dr Chen if I ever have any problems. I will probbaly see him in 6 months to see what he recommends for some scarring I have. I trust him 100% with my skin.
5 out of 5 stars Mole Removal
I chose Dr. Chen because he was on this site, close to my house and had a good review for mole removals. He was quick with the appointment but I didn't feel like he was rushing me and he stayed calm during the mole removal while I was freaking out.
5 out of 5 stars Mole Removal
Had second appt. since one below. Still superb!Dr. Chen is very thorough. Virtually painless keratoses removals using hyfercation. I paid out-of-pocket, since my insurance did not cover cosmetic services...and it was money very well spent. No visible scarring. Dr. Chen will soon biopsy suspicious growths that my primary care physician had been asked about and "blew off." I will also return for several more cosmetic removals. He is far superior to a prominent laser-specialty dermatologist that I had visited previously (those removals were painful and growths returned). Additionally, I have a history of melanoma and basal cell and have decided to make an appointment for an annual check-up every year, whether or not my Sharp's insurance will cover it or not. Dr. Chen has my utmost trust. He is careful, informative, and very professional. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Dorothy K. Simpson
