Joan Shen, MD, finds the mysteries of the human body fascinating. "I truly enjoy the science of the human body and discovering new things about it," Dr. Shen explained. "I've been interested in this since childhood.
"Medicine is the perfect field for me to put this interest to good use," Dr. Shen continued. "It is a noble and rewarding profession."
Dr. Shen says variety is part of what drew her to gynecology. "I get to take care of women of all ages, and to treat a variety of gynecologic conditions," she said. "Each of my patients and each of their treatment plans are interesting and unique."
When she is not working, Dr. Shen relaxes by reading or watching movies. "I also love staying active by taking exercise classes at the YMCA, and I like traveling when I get the chance," she said.
