Dr. Chen: Planting Roots as an Ophthalmologist in Charlotte

After many years of medical training that took her from Chicago to Atlanta to Albany, NY to Raleigh, Dr. Chen set roots down in Charlotte, NC! Being part of the Providence Eye team enables Dr. Chen to do what she does best, help patients improve their field of vision, and in many instances, their self-confidence. Dr. Chen lives in South Charlotte with her husband Trey and their two daughters. When not working Dr. Chen enjoys tennis, singing and traveling, but mostly just spending time with her family.
