Patricia M. T. Chen

Philosophy of Care

I chose my specialty because I enjoy solving mysteries, and an internist studies symptoms to find medical answers in much the same way that a detective looks at clues to solve crimes. My philosophy of care centers on the idea that the more a patient knows about his or her disease, the healthier that patient will be. In my practice, I make a real effort to understand each patient as a whole. Since I speak Chinese and Taiwanese in addition to English, I can communicate more effectively with individuals from those segments of the community.
