I believe that mutual trust and effective communication are two of the bedrock components of a good patient-provider relationship. I also believe that building strong collaborations with care providers within Texas Children’s Hospital and beyond is critical to fully leveraging the resources of our health system for the care of our children. Clinical/Research Interests: Dr. Chu cares for the full range of issues in general pediatric gastroenterology and hepatology. He has clinical and research interest in the management of functional abdominal pain and is involved in the Neurogastroenterology program. He also maintains an interest in alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency-associated liver disease.
