I can not even describe the amount of gratitude I have for this man. I was diagnosed with a spinal tumor last year during the summer time. I never Imagined that this could happen to me and I was scared out of my mind. I was sent to another neurosurgeon at first and then sent to Dr. Chen's office for a second opinion. After spending my time with Dr. Chen, I knew immediately that I wanted him to perform the surgery. He answered all my questions and took the time to really put my fears at ease. I went through the surgery and was able to walk on my own in about 8 days, unbelievable for the kind of surgery I went through. My scar looks absolutely amazing and almost blends in with the rest of my skin. Dr Chen is also one of the most down to earth kind of guys I have met and has a great amount of compassion for his patients. I can say with out hesitation that if any one needs any serious neurosurgery done, that Dr. Chen is the man you want.
For almost a year, I have been a patient of Mike Chen, M.D., a neurosurgeon who is located at the City of Hope in Duarte. I went to him because of unrelenting pain in my back. My insurance company had refused to authorize treatment other than back rubs. Dr. Chen went to work, found a way to get me treatment including surgery. The surgery was an immediate and unqualified success. The pain which I had been having was eliminated having me able to engage in my normal activities. Thumbs up to Dr. Chen!
Not much I can add to the previous ratings. I second all the good things that have been said. Down to earth, kind, helpful, informative, and a great surgeon. His staff is great also! Mike removed three discs and fused my cervical spine. I can function again without pain and large quantities of pain medication. I will recommend Mike to everyone needing a neurosurgeon!
Dr. Chen is the best. It was the first time I was going to have a surgery of this magnitude and therefore, I was very nervous. When he arrived at the hospital for my surgery, he held my hand and told me that I was going to be fine. Today, is my 12th day post operation, and I feel no pain on my leg. There is not one day I don't thank God for giving me Dr. Chen for my surgery. I highly recommend Dr. Chen.
Dr. Chen always went to extra mile to make myself and my family feel comfortable, answering the endless questions of my parents. Though i lack the skills to measure the relative skills of a physician, not only did he seem to care more, but also succeeded where 9 years of previous treatments had failed.
My dad recently had a spinal surgery with Dr. Chen. He explain in details about our options, the operation and the risks involved. He spoke with great confidence regarding the operation that made my family members and i feel so much at ease. It's all about trust when you're choosing a doctor. After one surgery and i am convinced we've found a great doctor and would totally trust Dr. Chen with our dad's treatment.
An uncommon man in the day of common men. Truly cares for his patients, to the point of looking at him as a friend, and not as a doctor. The City of Hope should feel honored to have him on staff. I know I feel honored to have him caring for a loved one. Most doctors I have met have a "God" complex and treat their patients and family accordingly; but Dr. Chen is so humble and respectful that he has earned my utmost respect. You can trust this man. I do. My family does also.
WOW..so many great things to say about Dr. Chen. He has been my husbands Dr. for 11 months now, and we could not has been blessed with a better doctor. Dr. Chen has treated us like his own family: with care,concern,support, advise,laughter,kindness,knowledge,and determination for my husband to live.Goes above & beyond to care for my husband.He calls to check up on us, even on his scheduled days off. He is very devoted! Whatever he recommends, we trust him 200%! Medical knowledge & experience? Well my husband has had a total of 10 brain surgeries, within a 12 month period, all done by Dr. Chen with an exception of 1 surgery. Some people say its a miracle,we say its a miracle, and a FANTASTIC doctor! Dr. Chen has a wonderful and caring staff. They get us in & out of our office visits without ever waiting. I wish there were 1,000 more Dr. Chen's out there in the world, he makes the world a better place. THANK YOU Dr. Chen for giving us hope,there will one day be a cure! We believe in you!
