Dr. Jennifer Chu, OD
Born and raised in Queens, New York, Dr. Jennifer Chu is excited about being back in the city after completing her training in Boston, MA. She received her Doctorate in Optometry from the New England College of Optometry.
Dr. Chu received in-depth training in ocular disease with an emphasis on glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and cataracts at several branches of the Veterans Affairs Hospital System in Massachusetts. She completed advanced rotations at specialty clinics and community health centers in the greater Boston area gaining experience with individuals with disabilities, pediatrics, specialty contacts, and primary care.
During her time in optometry school, she served and led three different optometric mission trips in the Dominican Republic and Belize. Her approach is to focus on preventative treatment and address conditions early to best preserve optimal ocular and visual health. Dr. Chu is a member of both the American Optometric Association and New York State Optometric Association. She can complete exams in Cantonese and Spanish.
Outside the office, Dr. Chu enjoys hunting down new coffee shops, live music venues, and various outdoor activities in all seasons.
