Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Chen "My practice philosophy is to treat all my patients with multidisciplinary care through physical therapy, psychotherapy, medication, and interventions.   I understand that pain is complex; it may be associated with a wide range of injury and disease, and is sometimes the disease itself.  Because of this, treating pain is often an arduous task; requiring expertise in musculoskeletal, psychiatric, and neurologic conditions.  This is why I sincerely believe that a multidisciplinary care model will result in optimal outcomes for my patients."

After seeing several different Rheumatologist and PCP's, Dr Chen was able to properly diagnose and treat me. I've been pain free for the first time in 5 years.
