Dr. Chen came across this quote during his cancer treatment, and it has become a core component to our philosophy:
“Patients are not an interruption of our work; they are the purpose of it. We are not doing our patients a favor by serving them; they are doing us a favor by giving us the opportunity to do so.”
Noble Delivery of Care
ChenMed physicians align classic medical values with family values. We believe in noble delivery of care that includes more than intrinsic factors and clinical acumen. It includes listening, talking and building relationships with patients so they feel like a member of our family.
Each staff member understands that he or she will be a patient someday. Therefore, we treat our patients with the same compassion and respect that we want for ourselves during our time of greatest need. We understand the importance of peace of mind for patients’ family members as well the importance of health and wellness for patients.
Medicine with a Mission
Not only is ChenMed dedicated to helping the communities we live in, but the Chen family has also invested many years in medical mission work in Nicaragua. They actively support Urban Promise and Amos Trust. The Chen family, along with ChenMed physicians and staff, perform healing missions every year.
