  • What's his secret to being a good doctor: Establishing a relationship of trust, mutual partnership and patient-empowerment.  I like to listen to patients and try to understand the whole perspective of health and illness.

 

Dr. Michael Chen became a Family Physician because he sees health not just as an issue of the physical, but of the mental, relational, and spiritual.  He is honored to be a trusted part of his patients' lives and wants to be part of helping people to live healthy, purposeful existences.  Dr. Chen believes that God gives us all wonderful gifts, and a life well lived is one that glorifies his or her Creator with those very gifts.

When he is not at work, Dr. Chen loves to spend time with his beautiful wife, Sophia, who is a Pediatric Hospitalist at Akron Children's Hospital.  They enjoy cooking, eating, playing guitar, quiet evenings at home, exploring the outdoors, photography, and enjoying fellowship and teaching at their church, Sovereign Grace Church of Cleveland, where he occasionally leads the worship team.

  • What's her secret to being a good doctor: I try my best to give my patients my complete attention and treat them with respect.  I also try to care for patients how I would want my own family to be treated.

 

Dr. Isabelle Lane always had a great desire to help people and Family Medicine gives her the opportunity to care for entire families.  She loves being able to care for children, their parents, and their extended families.  She feels honored to be able to provide medical care for people.

Chuck loves spending quality time with his wife and four children, and enjoys multiple sports, computers, and "relaxing" by doing yard work.  Chuck and his family attend Fishcreek Church of the Nazarene.  Growing up, he always looked forward to the long-time family tradition of vacationing in Myrtle Beach, which he has now continued with his own family.
