About Megan Chen, MD, MPH 

Board-certified by the American Board of Family Medicine, Megan Chen, MD, MPH decided to pursue medicine while in high school doing volunteer work with the elderly. The “Spring Fling” event at the Cupertino Senior Center was the defining moment that inspired her to consider primary care. While there, she met extraordinary vivacious people, filled with a sense of serenity and fulfillment. Moments like these made her want to maintain her own optimal health, as well as help other people to achieve theirs by providing care for them throughout their lives.  

Dr. Chen received her medical degree from the Boston University School of Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts. She completed both her internship and residency at the Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center in Santa Monica, California.  

As a family practitioner, Dr. Chen enjoys building lasting relationships with her patients. She helps her patients understand their illnesses and empowers them with the knowledge needed so they can improve their own lives. She strongly believes in preventive care, and she incorporates her Masters in Public Health (MPH) training into her philosophy of practice.  

Dr. Chen was born in California in the Silicon Valley and is of Taiwanese-American descent. Outside of work, you can often find Dr. Chen trying out a new restaurant with her husband and three children, or you may find her practicing her deep breathing at vinyasa yoga. 

This was my first appointment with Dr. Megan Eng-Ling Chen. She was very attentive, caring, helpful and informative. Answered all my questions and provided valuable feedback to my concerns. I found the best one! Check in process was easy and quick, receptionist – welcoming, helpful and polite. Thank you Providence, Dr. Eng-Lin Chen and staff!

Dr. Chen and the staff at her office are amazing! Dr. Chen always makes the time to answer any of my health questions. Her staff always makes the check in process easy and quick. Dr. Chen always sends me a follow up message to go over my test results and to address any additional concerns I have. Everything I wanted to accomplish with the check up visit was addressed. Everyone in the office was super nice and was considerate of my time. It was a pleasant and time-efficient appointment.

Dr Chen is organized, articulate, GREAT listener---really gets what I am saying to her, responds appropriate to what is related about my health with the exactly indicated next step. I feel her support and commitment to my health and well being every time I am in her presence. This is mirrored by her staff. I come away from the office with a plan and priorities for the year ahead. I am leading life as the healthy, vigorous, active senior I envisioned as a younger person. SO grateful for Dr Chen who is key to my dreams being realized. Best Doc Ever!
