For Dr. Jay Chu, there is a necessary balance in caring for patients, akin to the philosophy of yin and yang. Science and art, professional and personal, long-term and immediate. In his nephrology practice, he has found the ideal balance.
Addressing all aspects of disease management, Dr. Chu works with his patients long-term, developing strategies to enhance their quality of life, as well as providing for their immediate acute care needs. He enjoys fostering one-on-one relationships with patients, as well as collaborating with a multi-disciplinarian team of specialists contributing to their care.
Dr. Chu feels the patient is the most essential member of a healthcare team. He believes in open and candid communications and in providing his patients with the information and insight they need to make the best personal decision in an often complex medical situation.
Born in Shanghai, China, Dr. Chu left China after completing elementary school, and lived in Montellipier, France where he attended junior high school before moving to California with his family.  He is board certified in Nephrology and Internal Medicine.
In his free time, Dr. Chu enjoys international travel. He is also proficient in computer programming and statistical analysis and has a keen interest in the adaptation of technology in healthcare to improve medical communication and efficiency.
