Patient Care Philosophy:
Dr. Chen treats his patients the way he would like his family to be treated. He believes that being a good doctor requires having empathy. It starts from understanding his patients beyond just the disease, because being sick is a lot more than just having a diagnosis.
It was his dream since childhood to be a doctor because of his love for his grandparents, and they continue to inspire him as he treats his patients.
