Dr. Chen is a wonderful, straightforward, reasonable, person that is extremely good at her work. She's intuitive and understanding. I wish I could stay with her as my Primary. I would recommend her to everyone. I was able to spend time discussing options for treatments, timing, reservations and concerns with her at length, which for me is what I needed to get through this process. THANK YOU!
I could not see my primary care physician, and am delighted that I was able to see Dr. Chen. She and her medical team were fantastic, thoughtful, thorough and helpful.

I SO appreciated their responsiveness and understanding!

Dr. Angie is so friendly. She is excellent! Spent enough time to cover the problem. Like her!
Dr. seemed annoyed I was there & that I couldn't see my PCP, acted like I was a waste of her time.
My problem (badly impacted wax in both ears) was only partially alleviated at the clinic; the provider, Dr. Chen, handled my problem carefully and with great cheer and good humor, and then enthusiastically referred me to ENT at Menlo Medical Clinic -- apparently specialists known to her personally. I was able to obtain an appointment there the next day that completely alleviated the problem.
