Deborah Chen, MD Joins Haywood Regional Medical Center
October 23, 2022
Haywood Regional Medical Center (HRMC) welcomes Deborah Chen, MD, to its staff. She will be offering services in Obstetrics and Gynecology (Ob-Gyn) to patients throughout Haywood County and beyond.
Chen attended the University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA, for her undergraduate education, where she studied Neuroscience, English Writing, and American Sign Language. She then went on to Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, Piscataway, NJ. Chen then completed her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Mountain Area Health Education Center (MAHEC) in Asheville, NC. Her clinical interests include prenatal and postpartum care, contraception counseling, pelvic pain, infertility, urinary incontinence, and more.
When asked what Chen looks forward to bringing to the community, she shared, “I look forward to adding a strong voice of patient advocacy, with an eye towards improving the systems that impact women's health. In my opinion, women are the core of a community, and without excellent women's health care, a community cannot thrive.” She continued that she wants her patients to know “that [her] ultimate goal is to work with them to achieve a state of health where they can feel how they want to feel and do what they want to do.”
Dr. Chen begins seeing patients in November at Haywood Women’s Medical Center. Appointments may be made by calling 828.452.5042.
