As a highly-skilled ophthalmic plastic surgeon, Dr. Chen rounds out Providence Eye’s commitment to providing procedures to improve people's vision and lifestyle.
Dr. Chen’s passion for both the science and art of ophthalmic plastic surgery, along with her kind and approachable bedside manner, makes her a perfect addition to the Providence Eye team.
Dr. Chen joins us most recently from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill, where, as a practicing physician she held the title of Assistant Professor in the Department of Ophthalmology in the section of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
After many years of medical training that took her from Chicago to Atlanta to Albany, NY to Raleigh, Dr. Chen is very excited to set roots down in Charlotte, NC! Joining 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 daughter Lucy. When not working Dr. Chen enjoys tennis, singing, and traveling, but mostly just spending time with her husband and daughter.
