Family Medicine allows me to continue a life-long relationship with my patients and grow alongside them. I enjoy seeing the whole family together because it gives me a more complete picture of my patient’s daily life and their social interactions. I am a firm believer that the physician-patient relationship is a two-way street. I am here to listen, teach, give recommendations, and work with my patients on their health journey. I believe patients should take ownership of their health and take the necessary steps to gain control of a well-balanced life, and together, we can tackle issues to promote a healthier lifestyle.
In her free time, Dr. Chen can often be found at a rock-climbing gym, reading at a coffee shop, or hanging out with friends in their homes. She is also involved in her local church and enjoys reaching out to college students, nursing home residents, or children’s ministry. She also volunteers for medical mission trips, most recently to the Dominican Republic. Dr. Chen says her favorite local spots are Mount Bonnell or the 360 Bridge, “where I can just overlook nature and be reminded of the bigger picture.”
