    Since 1985, Dr. Chen has been in private practice in Ophthalmology in New York City. She has been able to successfully combine her analytical and technical skills with her desire to create long term relationships with patients, and can claim to often take care of three generations of patients.  Dr. Chen's patients are especially pleased with her ability to explain the issues which affect their eyes. Her manner is comforting and educational.

Industry Relationships

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.

Dr.Chen is not currently required to report Industry relationships.

Mount Sinai's faculty policies relating to faculty collaboration with industry are posted on our website at http://icahn.mssm.edu/about-us/services-and-resources/faculty-resources/handbooks-and-policies/faculty-handbook. Patients may wish to ask their physician about the activities they perform for companies.
