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 is amazing, he listened and cared for our son as if he was his own. We are lucky to have a physician that sees pediatric patients instead of driving to orange or Los Angeles to see a specialist, we have an amazing one right here close to home. The office staff is great also always taking their time with the little one knowing that kids can be difficult to get what they need.
