Jason Chen, D.O., practices integrative family medicine, osteopathic manual medicine and acupuncture at Johns Hopkins Community Physicians Glen Burnie. As a board-certified integrative health care provider licensed in acupuncture, he is passionate about not just diagnosing and treating his patients' diseases, but preventing them by identifying the underlying cause of illness.
Dr. Chen is committed to helping his patients find their optimum health, whatever it may be. He believes in the body's ability to heal itself and is committed to supporting the body's self-healing, homeostatic processes because he believes that each and every body is fearfully and wonderfully made. Dr. Chen welcomes his patients to talk to him regarding their spirituality or faith if they so desire because he believes that true change comes from within.
Dr. Chen earned his undergraduate degree at the University of Virginia, where he majored in commerce and cognitive science. He then earned his doctor of osteopathic medicine degree from Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed his residency in family medicine at the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore. He graduated from the University of Pennsylvania's Mindfulness Stress Reduction for Healthcare Providers and Harvard Medical School's Structural Acupuncture for Physicians course in 2013.
He was awarded an Arnold P. Gold Research Fellowship at the Yale School of Medicine, where he created and implemented a randomized controlled study investigating the effects of music on children’s perioperative recovery following same-day surgery. He was also an Intramural Research Training Award fellow at the National Institutes of Health.
Dr. Chen's integrative practice at Johns Hopkins Community Physicians builds on his successful integrative primary care practice at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, where he instructed premedical students, medical students and residents in the inpatient and outpatient settings as a hospitalist and clinical faculty member.
Dr. Chen is an avid runner. He also enjoys playing piano, violin and viola; swimming; tennis; yoga; tai chi; and spending time with his family and friends. He is fluent in English, Mandarin Chinese and Spanish.
