Doctor Spotlight: Dr. Anthony Chu

January 18, 2018

Say hello to Dr. Anthony Chu, a licensed, board-certified family practitioner making house calls in San Francisco! Dr. Chu is a Philadelphia transplant and freshly minted television star (see him on ABC’s Bay Area LIFE here) who is passionate about how technology can improve health care for his patients. We’re so happy he’s found a home with Heal!

What is your favorite part about working with Heal?

Being able to be at the forefront of primary care and healthcare delivery.  

What did you do before joining the Heal team, and what prompted you to make the switch to Heal?

Before joining Heal, I completed my fellowship in Primary Care Sports. Being able to blend technology and medicine has always been a passion of mine.

Where did you complete your studies?

I completed my undergraduate degree at Providence College in Computer Science. After working for a few years in the technology field I completed my Post Baccalaureate in Pre-medical studies at West Chester University. I received my Doctor of Osteopathy at Western University of Health Sciences, College of Osteopathic Medicine, and completed

Family Medicine residency at Mount Sinai Hospital, New York City where I was Chief Resident. I finished fellowship training in primary care sports medicine at Long Beach Memorial Hospital in Long Beach, CA.

You do a great service to your community working with Heal, but how do you get involved in the community outside of work?

I volunteer medical services for local sporting events as well as concerts.  

What is a random fun fact about you that not many people know?

I’ve played in several rock bands and have moved a vinyl record collection across the country 3 times.

Since you’re an on-the-go doctor, do you have a favorite lunch spot that you frequent on shift?

Sandwich Spot, Redwood City

Dr. Chu is one of the many doctors available through Heal who knows that a genuine, trusting relationship with the patients have long-lasting, positive results. Has Dr. Chu paid you and your family a visit? We’d love to hear about it!
