| 15/10/2010

(CNS): Dr. Christine Chen has recently joined Dr. Gordon Smith’s medical practice on Smith Road, George Town which focuses on Neonatology/Pediatrics. Dr Chen who is fromJamaica undertook her medical training at The University Hospital of The West Indies in Jamaica, where she obtained her M.B.B.S. (Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery); following this she then worked at Bustamante Hospital for Children, Jamaica for three years. She then completed her residency in Pediatrics at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, Florida.  

 “In the couple of months that I have been on island, I have enjoyed getting to know my patients and their families. I am looking forward to spending more time with them, getting to know my community, so I may serve them even better. I am also looking forward to finding opportunities to practice preventative medicine and wellness amongst school age children and in the community at large,” Dr. Chen said.
Dr. Smith said he was delighted to welcome a doctor of Dr. Chen’s calibre to his practice.
“Dr. Chen has a strong and varied background in pediatrics and she is already a tremendous asset to our growing practice,” he said. “Having worked in Jamaica at a number of different practices in Kingston and Portmore, she has gained a wealth of experience working within communities with very diverse cultural and social backgrounds. She is also a diplomat of the American Board of Pediatrics and a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics and we welcome her on board at our Smith Road practice.”
Dr. Chen added that she sees great opportunities working at the Smith Road practice, working alongside Dr. Smith and Dr. Newton, to expand and therefore create more opportunities to serve the children of the Cayman Islands even better in the years to come.
