yen chen final


I was born in Taipei, grew up in Christchurch and went through Otago medical school. After graduation I was lucky to have worked in Nelson hospital for a couple of years as a house surgeon and married my wife Sarah. We have spent the past few years doing GP training in Tauranga and are grateful for the opportunity to come back to Nelson with our children to be closer to family.

The most enjoyable aspect about primary care is being part of the community and journeying with the patients. I enjoy all aspects of general practice and further to general GP training I have further studies in skin cancer dermoscopy and sport/exercise medicine. I look forward to meeting you in the future.
