About me

Welcome! My name is Dr. Chau-Shyong D. Chen (also known as David), and I am a board-certified pediatric anesthesiologist at Kaiser Permanente’s Los Angeles Medical Center. I know that it can be a daunting experience when you or a family member are about to have surgery. I have put together some personal information so that you can get to know me a bit better.

Biography

I was born in Taipei, Taiwan, and moved to the United States in 1983. I was drawn to anesthesiology because when I was a medical student, I found myself fascinated by the pharmacology and science of anesthesia. I know that families can worry prior to surgery, especially for their children, and as an anesthesiologist, I can help to allay both the patient’s pain and the fear of his or her loved ones. Following my residency in anesthesiology, I chose to undertake a further year of subspecialty training in pediatric anesthesia. I enjoy gardening, playing tennis, and taking long walks with my wife. I have two children.

About my practice

At the Los Angeles Medical Center, we practice anesthesia with a team approach, meaning that we anesthesiologists work together with certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs) to take care of the patients. A lot of major surgeries are performed at this facility on a daily basis. The entire staff works together in an effort to ensure the safety of our members.

How I thrive

Though spending long days in the operating room can be both physically and emotionally taxing, I stay healthy by always making sure to exercise regularly and eat healthily. I enjoy playing tennis with friends and with my children when they are home from school. While I have always had a profound appreciation for good food, now that I’m older, I make an extra effort to maintain a well-balanced diet and consume plenty of liquids. I find that it is very important to spend quality time with my family and relax at the end of the day in order to maintain my physical and mental well-being.
