Dr. Chaowen “Jason” Chen is an assistant professor of neurology at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth Houston. He received his medical degree from National Taiwan University College of Medicine in 1993, and he received his doctorate from National Yang Ming University, both in Taiwan. For his thesis, he studied the neurological substrates of human conceptual implicit memory. The data collection and analysis were completed at the Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory at Northwestern University in Chicago, under Dr. Ken Paller, who was the senior author of Dr. Chen’s thesis data publication.

After completing his neurology residency at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, Dr. Chen completed his neurology fellowship in clinical neurophysiology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Prior to joining UTHealth Houston Neurosciences, Dr. Chen spent 10 years working at the Neuroscience and Stroke Center at Tallahassee Memorial Health, serving the last five years as medical director. He spent nearly a decade as an attending physician and neurodiagnostic lab supervisor there, reading results of more than 10,000 EEGs. He also worked as a clinical assistant professor in the College of Medicine at Florida State University.

A board-certified neurologist, Dr. Chen specializes in neurocognitive disorders, epilepsy, and cerebrovascular disease. He has expertise in diagnosing and managing various types of cognitive impairment, and sees patients at the Neurocognitive Disorders Center at UTHealth Houston.

Collaboration with Referring Physicians

Physicians at UTHealth Houston Neurosciences engage referring physicians in the care of their patients, keeping them informed about patient progress throughout the evaluation and treatment process. After a patient’s treatment, referring physicians receive a summary and a plan for follow-up. Our physicians encourage continued communication about each patient.
