    I was put in room on time then WAITED 50 MINUTES before Dr. Chen came into see me. Unacceptable!! If you can't see patients at the time of appointment try not over scheduling. You made me late getting back to work!!!

    I feel very fortunate to have had Dr. Chen as my doctor for treatment of my glaucoma. She has performed glaucoma and cataract surgeries on me with excellent results. I feel that my vision is better now than it has been in years. I feel that Dr. Chen is an excellent doctor and I feel that the doctors in training who I have met during my treatment and visits are very fortunate to have her as their teacher and supervisor.

  • Dec 06, 2019

    Dr. Chen is wonderful. I have no issues with OHSU other than I think you guys could improve on the wait time for your patients. I've been there twice and I've had to wait quite a while before I even saw the doctor, so that would be my only negative feedback. Thank you.

  • Dec 05, 2019

    She is pleasant to be with and tells you what she's doing as she goes along.

  • Dec 04, 2019

    I had an excellent experience with my appointment with Dr. Chen. She was very helpful and telling me that my glaucoma eye pressure was 8 for my left eye and 16 for my right eye which is very good news because as a result of her prescription for a new eye drop my eye pressure dropped down considerably. So, I'm very appreciative of her assistant and my appointment with her went very well.

  • Dec 03, 2019

    She seemed rushed but I also thought she gave me treatment options with the input I asked for to make a good decision.

  • Nov 26, 2019

    My visit with Dr. Chen and support staff went very smoothly. I felt confident in the young woman who did the initial screening -- she was very professional as well as the young woman in photography. Dr. Chen was personable and answered my questions and concerns.
