Cynthia L. Chen, M.D.
I am passionate about providing personalized care for patients of all backgrounds. I understand that many factors outside the exam room affect a patient's experience with skin disease, and I strive to be sensitive to these influences to give my patients the best care possible. My teaching and research background makes me excited to be working at this institution amongst so many wonderful colleagues.
