Philosophy of Care

My philosophy as a physician is to treat patients as a whole. I understand that my patients may come from different backgrounds and actively involve their opinions in the decision process. I strongly advocate for my patients and their families while they are undergoing the journey with cancer.

Clinical Interests

Dr. Chen is a gynecologic oncologist who offers comprehensive care to women with ovarian, uterine, cervical, vaginal and vulvar cancer. Her expertise includes advanced surgeries, chemotherapy and targeted therapies. She is skilled in both robotic and laparoscopic techniques of minimally invasive surgery.

She is actively involved in recruiting and developing clinical trials at the UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center. She also has special clinical and research interests in integrative oncology and complementary and alternative medicine (CAM). She strives to guide her patients as they navigate between their own cultural healing practices and cancer-directed treatment.

Research/Academic Interests

Dr. Chen's research focuses on clinical trials of novel and targeted therapies to treat gynecologic cancers. She is also interested in using complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) therapies to help manage symptoms and improve quality of life from cancer and cancer treatment.
