About Cherie Chu, MD

It is such a privilege to be a pediatrician because I have the opportunity to build long relationships with families. I love being able watch children grow up knowing that I contributed to their well-being. I believe in an approach that focuses on a healthy lifestyle to maintain wellness. I work together with families not just for acute medical care, but also in preventive care by promoting lifelong healthy habits. I participate in the Sharp Rees-Stealy Medical Group Climate and Planetary Health Committee because I have an interest in addressing the impact of climate change on human health. I enjoy cooking, photography, crafting and spending time with my family.

Positive: the Dr took the Issue seriously and provided a multi-faceted approach to Improve the Issue as soon as possible. Calling the nurse line for assistance resulted In a virtual visit very quickly which was surprising and very much appreciated. Negative: The prescribed treatment was complex to execute and the instructions given were not adequate. This caused confusion at the pharmacy and much difficulty while attempting to apply and follow the treatment plan.
