What Our Patients Are Saying
"Both my teenage daughters had an excellent experience with Dr. Chien. She was extremely thorough in her assessment of both and was appropriately conservative yet effective in her treatment recommendations. Thankfully, each has responded well to their specific dietary regimens and both are free of the adverse symptoms they were experiencing."

"We had a really great experience with Dr. Chien. I was super anxious about my daughter's unclear stomach/digestive issues, but quickly felt reassured we were in good hands. Dr. Chien is incredibly knowledgeable and explained everything in a way we could understand. She gave us recommendations without pushing and took the time to answer all my (repetitive) questions. The office staff was friendly and welcoming as well. I would definitely return to Dr. Chien and recommend her highly."

"Dr. Chien was wonderful at being patient and explaining the issues during my recent daughter's visit. She even called me personally to discuss lab results. Amazing."
