Dr. Loretta Chou has been a pediatrician at St. Joseph Hospital for five years and works with children of all ages and stages of life. She takes a large amount of pride in her job, which she finds both stimulating and rewarding.
Dr. Chou is an avid traveler and has an appreciation for exploring other cultures. She also considers herself to be a “foodie” and enjoys new adventurous experiences – including scuba diving and skydiving!
Being medically proficient in Mandarin and Spanish, one of her biggest passions is providing care to the underserved in our country, as well as other countries.

“The best doctor my kids have ever had. She’s so understanding and takes the time to make sure they the proper care they need. She doesn’t wait until things get worse and ‘have them come back’. She’s passionate about what she does and that’s what makes her special! If you are looking for a pediatrician for your child, I recommend her 100%.” – Nashaly
“My four year old loves Dr. Chou. We have been seeing her ever since my daughter was born. I have appreciated Dr. Chou’s pragmatic and thoughtful advice over the years as a new parent. She is as patient and reassuring with parents as she is with children. Highly recommend Dr. Chou as a pediatrician!” – Erin
“A keen listener, and a very accessible doctor. She never rushes through an examination and she makes any question we have seem important. I have begun to regard her more as a family friend than my daughter’s doctor. We have been very fortunate to have Dr. Chou consult us through our daughters infant and toddler years. Thank you very much Dr. Chou.” – Smitha
