About

Bio

Hello Everybody !!! I am Dr. Que Chu. I came to the US in 1980. I completed residency training in Pediatrics from 1983 to 1986 and then General Anesthesiology from 1986 to 1988 then Fellow of Pediatric Anesthesiology from 1988 to 1989. I have been practicing both Pediatrics and Anesthesiology since 1989. I am now practicing in a community hospital in central coast of California. It has been a privilege for me to serve thousands and thousands of patients in more than 30 years of my career and I am more than happy to share that experience and with you or your family and I also wish to learn the extraordinary wisdom of my colleagues in this tremendous platform which I absolutely believe will help a lot of patients in a very convenient and 24/7 access to medicine. I strongly believe this is the future of medicine in which the patient have the complete control of the process of taking care of his or her health care as well as of their children. Best Personal Regards!! Que Chu, MD.
