Serena Chen, MD, graduated from Brown University in Providence Rhode Island. She then attended Duke University School of Medicine in Durham, North Carolina, where she caught her first baby and decided to become an Obstetrician Gynecologist (it was a very cute baby). She then trained in Gynecology and Obstetrics at the Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland.
Dr. Chen had a hard time deciding what to do there because she loved delivering babies, loved doing surgery and loved seeing patients in the office. Of all the wonderful things in the field of Obstetrics and Gynecology, she finally decided she was most fascinated by the world of test tube babies or IVF (In Vitro Fertilization) and so did her subspecialty training and became board certified in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, which she practices to this day.
She is very honored that she has been voted by her peers to be a Top Doctor in the NJ Monthly survey every year from 2007 to 2014, and has also received Best Doctor honors from Castle Connelly, NY Magazine and others. She is currently Director of Reproductive Medicine at IRMS (Institute for Reproductive Medicine and Science) at Saint Barnabas and Clinical Associate Professor at Rutgers, UMDNJ, New Jersey Medical School.
Dr Chen has put together countless numbers of eggs and sperm in little dishes and transferred countless embryos into women’s wombs (mostly one at a time) and made tons of babies. Dr Chen is also hard at work making sure that women are empowered with the knowledge to make informed decisions about their reproductive health. Dr Chen believes that knowledge is power and empowering patients with the knowledge they need to make the best decisions for themselves and their families will lower stress levels and allow people to journey through medical treatment in a healthier way.
She loves inspiring her patients with information and ideas about their mental and physical health in an interesting and accessible way. In the office she does this one person at a time. On the world-wide-web and multiple social media platforms she hopes to give many more people who cannot come into the office, relevant, practical, accessible and interesting information that they can use to live better, healthier lives.
