Shu Chin Kuan may be one of the few multilingual doctor practicing in the greater Houston area who attended medical school in Brazil, followed by 3 years residency in Pediatrics in New York City and fellowship in Pediatric Nephrology at UCLA, Los Angeles, CA. And yet, her bi-coastal and bi-continental journey through medicine isn?t even the most important thing that sets her apart from professional peers.
Dr. Kuan is a Katy-based pediatrician who prides herself on communication with parents and children alike; to this end, she returns all her own phone calls dealing with lab results and clinical questions from parents. ?I prefer to hear and discuss medical issues from and with my own doctor? Kuan explains, ? that is the way I feel most comfortable when dealing with medical questions and calls from my patients?
Initially practicing Internal Medicine in Brazil, Dr. Kuan switched over to working with children. Within three or four months, she admits that she fell in love with pediatrics. She utilizes a philosophy of healthy children becoming healthy adults and thus providing for healthy futures. Dr. Kuan who believes her practice differs from others in how ?up-front, honest, caring and ready to listen? they are, is Board Certified by American Board of Pediatrics, a Fellow in the American Academy of Pediatrics, as well as member of Harris County Medical Society, Texas Medical Association and International Pediatric Nephrology Association. She also enjoys teaching and is a faculty of American College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Houston as well as serving in various roles as clinical preceptor with Baylor College of Medicine and has been in practice in Houston for eight years.
