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.
