Dr. Annie Chen-Allen

Dr. Annie Chen-Allen is excited to be the first board-certified veterinary neurologist in Central Oregon!  She received her degree in veterinary medicine from Texas A&M University.  She then completed a small animal rotating internship along with a neurology residency at Washington State University.  While in her residency, she also obtained a master’s degree.  Because of her love for teaching and research, Dr. Chen-Allen stayed on as a faculty neurologist at Washington State University for the last 17 years.  She has numerous peer-reviewed publications and has been invited to speak at conferences both nationally and internationally.   She has also received multiple teaching awards.  She loves sharing her passion for neurology to other veterinarians, students, technicians, staff, and pet parents.  She hopes to continue to provide continuing education lectures throughout the Pacific Northwest. 

Dr. Chen-Allen practices both neuromedicine and neurosurgery.  Her research and clinical interest is in brain tumors, specifically focusing on improving treatments for these patients.  Her surgical interests are in brain tumor resections including pituitary tumors and spinal surgeries for disk ruptures, spinal fractures, and spinal tumors.  She also provides management for seizure, vestibular and stroke patients. She strives to provide the best care possible for each patient and to support the pet family thru the process of managing a neurologic pet. 

Outside of the clinic, Dr. Chen-Allen enjoys spending time with her husband, Andy, and their two sons, Gabriel and Paxton.  They have two German Wirehaired Pointers, Mater and Finn, two cats named Daisy and Sage, and a horse named Chloe.  They love fishing, hiking, boating, camping, mountain biking and skiing.  They are excited to explore everything Central Oregon has to offer!
