    Philosophy of Care

    Dr. Quinn-Chen is an Obstetrician/Gynecologist committed to providing compassionate, nonjudgmental, personalized care to Peninsula women. She believes in empowering women with the knowledge to make their own health care decisions. Dr. Quinn-Chen meets women where they are and helps them to move forward. She educated them about their bodies and enables them to make rational decisions. Working from a place of deep compassion and extensive expertise, Dr. Quinn-chen helps patients through the many transitions every woman faces: from adolescence to the childbearing years and through the transition into menopause. She is passionate about helping women make choices that make sense for them. Dr. Quinn-Chen enjoys getting to know her patients during their pregnancies and helping them prepare for the exciting journey of parenthood. She also has a special interest in the treatment of heavy periods (menorrhagia) with the latest techniques to avoid hysterectomy. For those women who require surgery, Dr. Quinn-Chen is experienced in cutting-edge minimally invasive surgical techniques, enabling her patients to recover quickly and improve their quality of life. Individualized management of menopause, with or without hormones is also a focus of her.

    Besides providing care to her patients, she has served as Chair of the department of Obstetrics and Gynecology for the past 6 years. She has also served on quality assurance committees throughout her time in practice. One of her most inspiring medical experiences was caring for indigent women on a medical mission to Peru in 2009. In Peru she performed much needed surgeries on patients who world not otherwise be able to afford an operation, but the most rewarding part was talking with and educating women about their conditions and helping them understand why surgery was not their best option. She looks forward to participating in another medical mission in the near future.

    Dr. Quinn-Chen grew up in the East Bay and did her Undergraduate studies at UC Berkeley. She obtained her M.D. as well as her training in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Southern California. She has been in practice on the Peninsula for the past 12 years. She lives on the Peninsula with her husband and 3 children. In her spare time she enjoys sewing costumes for her daughter’s plays, cooking, exercise and travel.

    Dr. Quinn-Chen looks forward to working with you to help you experience all aspects of your life to the fullest.
