I love my doctor! I feel things could have been explained a lot better then they where. I signed off on a new agreement because they said of the increase in my Tylenol #4 and also did a drug text because of the increases. my discharge instructions even had on there about my increase to my Tylenol and another med for me to come home and find out I was cold turkey cut off my pain meds and not even tapered as I was in the past with another doctor.

It was great to meet Dr Chen. He was very personable and the first doctor that actually pulled up my MRI results and showed me where my problems were. He used the images to explain my back damage and what could be done to help my pain. I had been going to another pain management program that was unprofessional. It was wonderful to go to Dr. Chen's office and be able to rate them 5 stars! Excellent!
