Hernia and Gallbladder Surgery - Perth Specialist Surgeon


Holiday Announcement

Dr Chen is taking a much-appreciated break during the 2019 July school holidays with his family overseas. As a result, the rooms will be on a low-activity mode from Friday 5th July 2019. You will still be able to email through questions and referrals, and Matt will be checking on them each day and getting back to you. You are also welcome to leave messages on the office phone, but emails are preferable. 

We thank you for your patience, and look forward to doing our best to help you when he returns on Monday 22nd July 2019.
