Dr. Chen had a fascination with medicine early on in his childhood, as both his father and grandfather were family doctors. “I have always known that I would go into medicine since I was in kindergarten. I saw firsthand how my father and grandfather’s work impacted the lives of those in our community on a daily basis” states Dr. Chen. “I enjoy the ability to improve my patients' lives by allowing them to hear, breathe and speak better. I am fortunate to specialize in a field where tangible results can make a difference in the patient’s daily life.” Outside of work, Dr. Chen has a fascination with food and says people are often surprised by how much he can eat. His favorite restaurants are Korean BBQs and Seafood Buffets. With such a great appreciation for food, comes a responsibility to remain active. He loves hiking, cross-country running, combat workouts, kayaking and biking to name a few. Dr. Chen loves the outdoors and appreciates all that mother-nature has to offer.

Dr. Chen spends time with you to actually listen to your concerns. It's very hard to find a physician who actually does that nowadays. He genuinely cares.

Dr. Chen is a great doctor. He pays attention to what you tell him, and addresses your concerns. He cares about his patients. I took my mother to him first, and he was so pleasant that when I needed an ENT I wanted to see him.

I really liked Dr Chen. He spent enough time reviewing my catscan and pathology report. Talked to me about my options about surgery. I'm going to wait a few months to either schedule surgery or a visit for another ultra sound biopsy. I told Dr Chen that the tumor seems to be shrinking because it's smaller. I really liked the way Dr Chen listen to me and addressed my concerns. He did not just go in and out of the room like some doctors.
