Dr. Chen and Dr. Heathman met at Texas Tech HSC School of Medicine, but they took separate paths towards their expertise in ketamine assisted treatment.
Dr. Chen grew up in the Houston area and graduated from Rice University. He completed his anesthesiology training at the Washington University in Saint Louis followed by specialized training at the tri-institute pain fellowship of Cornell University, Hospital for Special Surgery, and Memorial Sloan Kettering. It was in New York where he helped start the ketamine program for peripheral neuropathy and treatment-refractory chronic pain. He is double boarded in anesthesiology and pain management.
