Dr Renee Dua: October 2015

   Dr. Renee Dua is a busy working mother who practices medicine while running Heal, a new on demand doctor house call app available in Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Francisco.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, she followed her father’s footsteps and entered the field of medicine, and now shares a medical practice with him in the San Fernando Valley.

Dr. Dua is board certified in nephrology, hypertension and internal medicine and served as Chief of Medicine at Valley Presbyterian and Simi Valley Hospitals. She completed her BS in Biochemistry at UC San Diego, her MD at Chicago Medica School/Rosalind Franklin University, her residency at UCLA and her fellowship in nephrology at USC.

Outside of work, Renee loves cooking for family and friends. As the mother to two young boys (18 months and newborn), she is still learning parenting “on the job” and believes there is no way one can ever be perfectly prepared for this challenging role. She is always improving her ability to efficiently multi-task now that she must juggle family, Heal, her busy medical practice, and constantly reminds herself to not lose her phone and car keys. Renee is married to technology entrepreneur Nick Desai.
