We love Dr. Chen and she has seen him once a month for years. Our relationship has become increasingly trusting and comfortable over time. She knows everything about his history and trust her judgement in decisions about his care. She is not afraid to consult other specialists or her nephrology colleagues if there is a complicated issue. Most importantly, she involves us as equal partners in his care.

Dr. Chen has made a terrible medical experience so much easier for Avery and his mother. She is very informative, always lays out a plan that is easy to understand and has the total trust of the family. Dr. Chen is one of the finest doctors we have ever seen.
