Dr. Chou Headshot 3

Dr. Katherine Chou

Dr. Chou is a San Francisco transplant from Southern California. She fell in love with the Bay Area while attending UC Berkeley, then spent the next few years in cheerful exile while earning her podiatric medical degree in windy Chicago. Acceptance into the prestigious Kaiser North Bay Consortium residency program paved the way for her return in 2008.

Upon her graduation as Chief Resident three years later, Dr. Chou was faced with the dilemma of choosing a safe, reliable job working for someone else or bravely striking out on her own to create the practice of her dreams. After careful consideration, she chose to follow her dreams and has never looked back.       

Dr. Chou is a multi-sport athlete and has run several marathons and was the sole female to complete an Ironman distance race on a day with rain, sleet, and hail. She is currently overcoming her fear of heights by learning to climb. A big part of why she loves living in San Francisco is because she can enjoy all the things she loves best: good weather, beautiful ocean views, open parkland, fantastic restaurants, and amazing people.
