Tina Chu, MD, provides comprehensive pediatric services for infants, children and adolescents, focusing on preventive and developmental care. Dr. Chu has expertise in newborn care and mental health, as well as quality improvement. Her primary goal as a pediatrician is to allow children and their families to become their healthiest selves. This can range from sharing techniques for a toddler to eat healthy foods to discovering the right diagnosis for a complex condition or providing support and guidance for a teenager struggling with depression or anxiety. Through her experience as a pediatrician, Dr. Chu has learned always to listen to a parent’s words as their intuition can be incredibly accurate. She is dedicated to working as a team with her patients and families and acts as a bridge between her patient’s symptoms and the parent’s words combined with her medical expertise and knowledge.


Dr. Chu is dedicated to staying active, from running and surfing to playing tennis and golf. She also is a foodie and enjoys exploring restaurants. Her husband and dog usually tag along for many of these adventures.
