SHC Patient, Feb 2016

Excellent experience - Dr. Chen was knowledgeable, clear about my condition & concerns - couldn't have been better.

SHC Patient, Feb 2016

First visit with Dr. Chen. She was professional, confident and caring. I learned more about my issue in this one visit than in years with prior physician. I have already recommended her.

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Dr. Chen is the best. Feels more like someone I've known for a while and can be open with beyond dermatologic issues. AND she is up to date with her knowldege and even drugs in the pipeline. I have been to several derm folks over the years and she is easily the best. I have and will recommend her to anyone I know in need of a consult.

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Doctor is very professional and caring. Highly recommend.

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Dr Chen was amazing in finding a little mole with melanoma. There were other areas which drew more suspicion but she found the bad one. The surgeon I saw subsequently expressed his admiration for her ability to identify melanoma in this case.

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Love love love Dr Chen

SHC Patient, Jan 2016

Excellent experience. Thoughtful, considerate staff and doctor. Dr. Chen was a concerned, knowledgeable professional who I will certainly continue to use, and will recommend.

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

I was seen by both Dr Chen and Dr. Bernard (unsure of correct spelling). Both were excellent. Not rushed. Very through.

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

She is well rounded. She's a great Doctor.

SHC Patient, Dec 2015

Dr. Chen was extremely personable and informative.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

I am a person that is afraid of needles, and Dr Chen explained what she was going to do every step of the way. She made me feel very comfortable and at ease. Definition of C I CARE.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

Dr. Chen is helping me deal with the results of many years of sun exposure. Her style is exemplary. Her clinical expertise is far beyond her years. Stanford is lucky to have her.

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

Very good doctor.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

My total experience with Dr. Chen and her staff was outstanding in all aspects.

SHC Patient, Sep 2015

Very positive experience.

SHC Patient, Sep 2015

Although Dr. Chen is a newer dermatologist, I have every confidence that switching to her from my former derm doctor was a good decision.

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

Dr. Chen was very considerate and attentive. I contacted her directly through email trying to see if I can get an earlier appointment with her and she asked her nurse to help schedule it the earliest possible. She paid a lot of attention to details when explaining to me the skin decease I have and treatment options as well as pros and cons analysis of the options. He listened carefully to me about the history and treatment I am interested in. He was open to try new treatment with me. Great experience working with her.

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

Great.

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

Dr Chen is passionate about the work she does and takes the time to listen. She is reassuring without being dismissive and is definitely empathetic. I am lucky to have found her.

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

My visit was very very positive & I thank all of you.

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

Both Dr.'s Chen & Crispin were nothing short of EXCELLENT. They were outstanding and professional.

SHC Patient, May 2015

though I appreciate how much thought she showed for my thoughts/feelings, I almost wish she hadn't given me as much choice in deciding what to do and had insisted more on what she thought was best

SHC Patient, May 2015

I was very impress with this Dr. Put me at easy right away and did not RUSH me.

SHC Patient, May 2015

Well beyond my expectations. I actually left another provider in favor of Stanford Dermatology Care. I recommend Stanford Clinics and Hospital to anyone that might ask. Stanford is 150 miles, one way, from my home, and well worth the time, in my opinion.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Some of the issues that needed to be discussed were rather awkward. I was impressed by her tact, as well as her promptness in personally giving me feedback on the test results.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Dr Chen is very thorough and extremely friendly. She doesn't rely on just the residents comments, but performs a thorough skin check herself.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Dr. Jennifer Chen was wonderful. She was extremely attentive to what I had to say and gave me all the time to explain myself. Afterwards, she explained back to me what I needed to know to understand my condition. I wish she was my primary care doctor as she is exactly what I wish for in a doctor. She was excellent!

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Dr. Chen was very professional, courteous, and friendly. She truly showed an interest in my health and explained the treatment in clear and concise language. I would definitely recommend her to family and friends.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Dr Chen was professional but also caring and completely engaged in our conversation

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Both, the resident and attending were great. In fact my husband came for his exam too on same day with same doctor . He was a member of Kaiser for many years and he commented he never had such detailed skin check before.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

I have a minor issue that is recurring and the provider provided basic information, I had already tried. she did not address the issue again. this is a new issue for me but i am very well versed in otc treatments because of my history. (althele with athletes foot)

SHC Patient, Feb 2015

Dr. Jennifer Chen very caring, careful when doing surgical procedure - explains everything in detail.

SHC Patient, Feb 2015

Dr. Chen was caring, kind, knowledgeable and overall fantastic!

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

I like Dr. Chen a lot but on principle don't rate anyone a 10.

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

Very respectful & patient to answer all my questions!

SHC Patient, Nov 2014

She was very informative and explained everything very well.

SHC Patient, Oct 2014

Dr. listened to my concerns carefully and prescribed a cream for plan instead of any more incisions to the area.

SHC Patient, Aug 2014

Provider dismissed my concerns about hot & humid weather affecting my condition & treatment. Ointment never works for me, and impractical to use it and avoid soap to maintain skin cleanliness -

SHC Patient, Aug 2014

I always had good experiences with Dr. Chen at all my appointments.

SHC Patient, Jul 2014

I was completely impressed by all the staff I interacted with.

SHC Patient, May 2014

Dr. Chen is fantastic! She is brilliant.
