Since beginning of 2018, we have fighted the cancer disease together with Dr. Thomas Chen. Thourgh the past journey, we found Dr. Chen is professional and dedicated. He and his team work closely on arranging all of lab tests, scans, and treatments in the infusion center or in the radiation department. When the SHC South Bay facility ran out all resouces, Dr. Chen would suggest or promptly arrange us using other health facility in the areas, including med-port installation and non-cancer related treatments. In additiona, Dr. Chen also carefully checks all treatment side effects, and provide solution to ease our concerns during each appointment. We think 5 star is not enough to rate Dr. Chen's services.

I feel he treats me like a partner in my health care, not some malady in human form. When I first met him, I asked a question that I had asked my previous doctor (I wouldn't recommend that man to treat man nor beast). Dr. Chen said "That's a little hard to explain. Let me think a minute." To me that's a great doctor and a very caring individual. He then explained in words that I understood, Bless his precious heart.
Dr. Chen is a little reserved & not always good eye contact, but a very good oncologist.
Dr. Chen is my hematologist and focuses on managing my blood disorders, however, he is always very concerned about my overall health and ask questions relating to my other health problems. He monitors all aspects of my health and blood work even though it isn't directly related to my hematology issues. He spends a good amount of time with me during my appointments and never makes me feel like he is rushed or bothered by my questions. If ever he is concerned about a health problem I tell him about, he orders labs or scans and makes sure I have a referral to another doctor if it is something he cannot assess. I fully trust my life with Dr. Chen!
I have had no negative experience whatsoever.
