About Dr. Leana Wen

Dr. Leana Wen is a Harvard-educated emergency physician, Rhodes Scholar, TED speaker, and author of the critically acclaimed book, When Doctors Don't Listen: How to Avoid Misdiagnoses and Unnecessary Tests (St. Martin's Press, January 2013; paperback June 2014).

When Dr. Wen was a medical student, her mother was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. As she helped her mother navigate the medical system, she saw how disconnected doctors and patients had become and how disempowering our health system ...

Dr. Wen is an extremely knowledgeable and passionate doctor, who is committed to her message to transform physician-patient interactions. I enjoyed her enthusiasm, her stories and the overall approach in her presentation.

Eric Foo - University of California, Davis

Leana is one of the best speakers I've seen. She knows how to use narrative to convey information. Her presentations . . . finely crafted, using brief, compelling stories to make serious points--without ever losing the audience's attention.

Dr. Wen is an extraordinary speaker. From the moment she uttered her first word, she captured the audience. She is articulate w/ her words & knowledgeable about the topics she is discussing. . . . she is compassionate w/ the audience she is addressing.

Stephanie C. Guiffre, MPA, Strategic Alliance & Initiatives Director - Colon Cancer Alliance

Dr. Wen's passion for helping people underlines her actions & led her to speak up when she sees a need for change, one of the many reasons for writing her book. . . . wonderful example for what a true physician should be like: honest, caring, trustworthy.

Samantha Chen - California State University, Los Angeles

Having been a trial lawyer, I value communication skills. Dr. Wen delivers powerful messages through her enjoyable presentations. I heard her keynote address . . . her short talk held the room rapt.

Charles Cobb, Attorney-At-Law - Silver Lake Legal

Dr. Wen's every word is meticulously articulated to create a finesse I have never seen before. She is outstanding, subtly guiding you through a series of events by utilizing and demonstrating exactly what she intends to delineate to her audience.
