Dr.Chen is our doctor and he truly changed my life. I have been a diabetic for 42 yrs. I’ve never had a doctor that was so patient and knowledgeable about my illness. I had spent a lot of time denying my diabetes and avoiding DR.s. Dr. Chen was different. He listened and gives you the time to absorb the information. He likes the challenge of problem solving.

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
I am experienced in reviewing acute and chronic illness concerns, such as hypertension, hyperlipidemia and thyroid disorders. I have more time to go over health concerns, such as diabetes, using various modalities, including the insulin pump. My MDVIP-affiliated practice offers services, including comprehensive, advanced health screenings and diagnostic tests, that go far beyond those found in concierge medicine practices.
I have relationships with many specialists in our community to help assist my patients and their unique needs. I also serve as a board member for Houchin Community Blood Bank, as well as the Valley Integrated Provider Network, part of Dignity Health. I am fluent in Mandarin and Taiwanese.
When people ask me why I chose primary care as my field of medicine, I often ask them what they think a primary care physician should be. Most people answer, “I don't know, someone to take care of me when I'm sick.” Although that is true in many of my daily encounters, that is not how I define it. I believe that primary care equates to an emphasis on prevention, which is, in my opinion, foundational to health. In the hustle and bustle of life, I feel that preventive medicine often gets pushed aside and reactive medicine takes over. To me, this has to change for us to have a fair chance to become healthier. If you would like to experience the benefits of more personalized primary care medicine, I invite you to explore joining my practice.
