Dr. Chen is outstanding!!!!
Dr. Chen is very professional and caring. I felt very comfortable with her ability to treat my condition.
we traveled from Colorado to specifically visit We came from Colorado to visit Dr. Chen. In her online bio she expressed interest in my particular problem. Dr Chen was amazing! she assessed my condition and mapped out and thoroughly described a detailed, comprehensive treatment plan. I feel like I have hope for the first time in 3 years!
i felt that she did not let me speak, or she didn't let me finish my sentences. I understand she's the "expert" in this field but she is not in my body. she's not the one with this condition 25+yrs of her life. I did not feel respected and I don't want to see her again. I spent $35 for my copay to hear things I already know and was disrespected. I really walked away unhappy.
I love Dr. Chen. She's never made me feel rush & talk to me as a family member - she make sure I understood all instructions & always reply to my emails quickly via MyHealth.

Dr. Chen is outstanding
I have been seeing Stanford MDs for many years for derm problems. Dr. Chen has so far provided the best care I have received.
For my part all very good. Thanks.
I think I would need more than one visit in order to rate items 9 and 10 higher. I think that confidence is something that is built over time and experience. And a recommendation is also something that needs to be built on more history than a single visit.
A stellar experience from start to finish.
This was my 4th visit to a dermatologist but the first at Stanford and the best and most thorough. I feel more in control of my skin issues now than ever before with a actual treatment plan and self care information I was never given before.
Dr. Chen is the best derm I've ever met.
always a pleasure to see Dr. Jennifer Chen. thank you
Dr. Chen is knowledgeable, caring. Provides excellent care at every appointment.
Dr. Chen is an outstanding physician and I trust her completely.
Provider was articulate, efficient, and professional.
The doctor has always been a great asset along with the patience of the staff. It's always a pleasure working with the clinic.
Dr. Jennifer Chen was excellent. I'm 68 and have seen many dermatologists let alone doctors in my life and she embodies everything I wish all doctors would exhibit. I've already recommended her to my friend.
Even though I arrived late, the care provider still spent plenty of time with me. I loved the way she explained all options and let me choose.
My care provider, Dr. Chen, was excellent in all the above respects. I left the visit feeling well taken care of and was treated very kindly while being informed.
Excellent; the best.
Compassionate, Gentle, kind, explanation was clear and reassuring.
Dr Chen was superb. Ten out of ten!
Jennifer Chen was exceptionally good. I would always return to her when possible.
Dr. Chen is always very courteous, friendly, and professional. She takes the time, even with a busy schedule, to answer my questions and explain any concerns. I would and have referred others to her.
Excellent experience - Dr. Chen was knowledgeable, clear about my condition & concerns - couldn't have been better.
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.
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.
Doctor is very professional and caring. Highly recommend.
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.
Love love love Dr Chen
Excellent experience. Thoughtful, considerate staff and doctor. Dr. Chen was a concerned, knowledgeable professional who I will certainly continue to use, and will recommend.
I was seen by both Dr Chen and Dr. Bernard (unsure of correct spelling). Both were excellent. Not rushed. Very through.
She is well rounded. She's a great Doctor.
Dr. Chen was extremely personable and informative.
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.
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.
Very good doctor.
My total experience with Dr. Chen and her staff was outstanding in all aspects.
Very positive experience.
Although Dr. Chen is a newer dermatologist, I have every confidence that switching to her from my former derm doctor was a good decision.
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.
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.
My visit was very very positive & I thank all of you.
Both Dr.'s Chen & Crispin were nothing short of EXCELLENT. They were outstanding and professional.
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
I was very impress with this Dr. Put me at easy right away and did not RUSH me.
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.
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.
Dr Chen is very thorough and extremely friendly. She doesn't rely on just the residents comments, but performs a thorough skin check herself.
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!
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.
Dr Chen was professional but also caring and completely engaged in our conversation
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.
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)
Dr. Jennifer Chen very caring, careful when doing surgical procedure - explains everything in detail.
Dr. Chen was caring, kind, knowledgeable and overall fantastic!
I like Dr. Chen a lot but on principle don't rate anyone a 10.
Very respectful & patient to answer all my questions!
She was very informative and explained everything very well.
Dr. listened to my concerns carefully and prescribed a cream for plan instead of any more incisions to the area.
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 -
I always had good experiences with Dr. Chen at all my appointments.
I was completely impressed by all the staff I interacted with.
Dr. Chen is fantastic! She is brilliant.
