Dr. Annie Chau
Dr. Annie Chau is an Orlando native. She was born in San Antonio, TX however grew up in Orlando. She remembers spending many weekends making rounds at the nursing homes and hospitals with her dad when she was young. She then spent many summers in high school and college working at her father’s practice, from helping out at the front desk to checking patients in. Those experiences piqued her interest in health care. She graduated with honors from the University of Florida in 2010 with a BS in Nutritional Sciences. During that time, she did research in Alzheimer’s disease in the Memory and Cognitive Disorder clinic. She then went to medical school at Florida State University and graduated in 2014.
She moved back to Orlando and completed residency in Internal Medicine at the same hospital her father trained at many years ago. During her time there, she worked on increasing access of care to the underserved, specifically the Vietnamese community and was awarded the Resident Community Service Award for her work. She also acknowledged by her residency faculty and peers and won the Primary Care Physician Award and Richard B. Hornick Humanitarian Award. Following residency, she wanted to gain more experience caring for the aging population and completed a fellowship in Geriatrics at Florida Hospital.
In her free time, Dr. Chau enjoys running, wine tasting and spending time with her dog, Zelda, who is a frequent visitor to the office.
