Dr. Irene Tien
Dr. Irene Tien is a board-certified Emergency Medicine and Pediatric Emergency Medicine physician with over 20 years of clinical experience taking care of patients in the emergency department. She completed her residency in Emergency Medicine at University of Connecticut and trained an additional three years as a Pediatric Emergency Medicine fellow at Boston University. She loves taking care of patients, and has done so in academic, community, urban and suburban settings.
"I truly enjoy taking care of people as an emergency medicine physician. The best part of my job is helping people understand their illness or injury and how to take care of themselves or their children at home. I think telemedicine is a natural extension of what I do in the emergency department. I hope that by making myself available to people via telemedicine, I can provide medical advice regarding the treatment of illness and injuries that don’t necessarily require an in-person visit with a physician."
