Neil T. Chen, MD Reviews (347)

Breast Implant Removal

Everyone was friendly and efficient. Dr. Chen took his time in explaining my options. There was no pressure to make a decision.

Breast Reduction

I felt like I was listened to and made to feel important. The clinic office very clean and the flow of care was organized. Dr. Chen was very informative and made me feel right at home.

Face Lift

Staff was very professional and courteous. Dr. Chen listened to my concerns and explained details of surgery during consultation. Dr. Chen went above and beyond before my surgery and during surgery explaining step-by-step what he was doing. Dr. Chen and his office is the best.

Breast Augmentation

The size I selected was exactly what I was looking for to enhance my breasts. The scar was minimal and recovery was manageable. My lower eye surgery made a significant difference in my appearance and the incisions were hidden and healed very nicely. Overall very pleased with the work Dr. Chen performed.

Tummy Tuck

I feel very confident with Dr. Chen as my plastic surgeon. I feel I will get the results I am seeking.

Breast Augmentation

The staff and doctor were very friendly. They took time to explain everything and answer all questions. They weren’t just trying to sell a service, but gave recommendations on what they thought would be the best options for me given lifestyle and goals of the surgery. Appreciate them making us feel welcome and safe.

BOTOX® Cosmetic

Dr. Chen is a wonderful physician. Very attentive caring with exceptional surgical skills. Only one to see in Albuquerque.

Mini Face Lift

Highly satisfied with Dr. Chen, would like a mini instead of a full face lift.

Tummy Tuck

I am pleased with my results as my tummy tuck has healed nicely and I am able to workout so soon after surgery. [Single best thing is...] My stomach is completely flat and I no longer have a bulged from having a child.

Eyelid Surgery

All the staff was highly professional and Dr. Chen was very easy and pleasant to deal with. I am a little nervous about my upcoming surgery but I'm confident Dr. Chen will do a fantastic job.

Breast Reduction

We arrived early for the consult. The staff immediately moved us to a room and started a video about the procedure. The video was informative. Shortly after the video, the doctor joined us and we discussed the procedure and my health. Dr. Chen was knowledgable, answering our questions and explaining the procedure.

Face Lift

The staff were extremely competent in handling the initial appointment and scheduling. The surgery center experience was exceptional with all nursing and support staff of the highest caliber. Dr. Chen’s flawless skill and efficiency are obvious in the end result. Thank you.

Rn Seemed very experienced-

Breast Augmentation

Dr. Chen and staff have been professional and kind throughout my experiences with their office. I always appreciate when they are able to work with my schedule for appointments. Dr. Chen met with me on a weekend due to my worry about a procedure and he checked me out, then reassured me everything was alright and healing great. I was so thankful for that moment because I left feeling at ease with. Also, when office is closed, if a patient has an urgent question, they can get through directly to Dr. Chen's cell-- that is incredibly unique and patient centered.

Dr. Chen and staff spend ample time explaining the procedure and making me feel comfortable and welcome without pressure. I hope to schedule this procedure soon. Thank you.
