Dr. Grace Chen is an amazing well knowledged professional doctor, and I've been with her for several years, but I love the time she takes, thoroughness of her observation. The staff today, different people. The RN was really nice, very personable. The person that brought me back, I don't know if they're a medical assistant, which they were, didn't introduce themselves, didn't say who I was, didn't verify who I was, just really nonchalant, not really, I didn't feel like he was a part of what we were doing even though he was, he took me to the room. I followed him to the room as he was taking wheelchairs back, but he never addressed who I was and he never address who he was so I didn't necessarily like that. He wasn't rude or anything, he just wasn't very personable. But other than that as usual with a very nice experience with Dr. Chen, and those that was in the room, procedure room.

Dr. Chen is absolutely fantastic. I wouldn't think of having anybody else but her and I've had the injections before with other physicians, but she's excellent. She's kind, she's caring, and just very nice person and that's about it, but she's just wonderful. Thank you.

The experience in the procedure room was a little to tense I thought and I understand that the students would be nervous and so on but they was a little to rush so I think of something a little less intense more relaxed atmosphere. And a little less rushing around would be good.

Although my transportation service failed me, my provider was able to see me, even an hour late, and I'm very grateful, because I don't know how I would have went the weekend without this procedure. But thank you very much, Dr. Chen. I hope you all have a wonderful day.

Oh, I thought Dr Chen was an amazing doctor. She was very great to be there with, I thought she was a great advocate for me... she was great to have as a doctor. I would recommend her to anybody, and if I ever have to have a... procedure like this again, I wish that she could do it again. In fact I wish that she could be my provider... general, doctor all the time. I have great admiration for this doctor and I really appreciated her during this time.

I have zero complaints about OHSU or Dr. Chen. Dr. Chen was amazing, the staff was friendly. It was just as pleasant an experience as it could be period, and I know they squeezed me in before I go in for a second surgery for my cancer. I am very grateful to everyone there. She is terrific.
- Aug 01, 2019
Dr. Chen is always courteous, and professional, and her bed side manner is impeccable. She's very friendly, and she always makes sure that she gives me all of the information about my procedures, and when I have questions she goes out of her way to answer them thoroughly, and in detail. Dr. Chen is absolutely amazing. I love her. I think she is one of the greatest doctors that I've never had on my neurosurgery care team.
- Jul 30, 2019
Dr. Chen was extremely informative about what the procedure was going to be and very professional.
- Jul 24, 2019
Dr.Chen is just an excellent professional! I am a person who has excruciating nerve pain, along with severe spasms that seize up muscles from my neck,shoulders, down my back, and intercostally throughout my ribs. This condition causes me a great deal anxiety. Dr. Chen took into account all of my issues and concerns. She treated me accordingly,and was accommodating,patient,and kind. Due to the general nature of the nerve block procedures,they are uncomfortable and painful. Yet,thankfully Dr. Chen and her staff always do their best to get me through it as quickly and safely as possible. She talks pleasantly and calmly, and makes sure I am as comfortably as possibly. She has already performed one nerve ablation that turned out well! I have one more nerve block test to go before an ablation can be done on my next area. I hope (& believe) the next one will be just as successful. Thanks also to her staff. Once again great job!
