Gordon Chen, MD
Being faced with losing my dad to cancer and God sparing his life, I'm humbled by the opportunity that has come to change lives for so many in need.
My hope is that this organization can bring more love, joy, and better health to our patients and staff in an effort to glorify God for all He's done for us.
