I strongly recommend fully vaccinating kids against preventable diseases on the schedule approved by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP), and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). I do not support nonmedical vaccine exemptions.
My practice beliefs center on providing my patients and families with information and guidance regarding all medical, developmental, and emotional needs. I strive to be thorough yet efficient, practical, and flexible."– Catherine Chiu, MD
Dr. Chiu is a certified pediatrician who has practiced in Portland since 1999. She is a native of Indiana and graduated from Indiana University School of Medicine in 1995. She completed her residency at Baylor in Houston, Texas. She enjoys spending time with her 3 daughters, outdoor activities, running, and music.
"I adore this practice and our pediatrician Dr Chiu. She is so great with my kids (one being neurodivergent and extra medical needs). Very caring and trauma informed. I was so touched when she recognized in a moment of anxiety my medical/NICU related PTSD and was incredibly calm and caring. I’ve never heard a pediatrician even talk about PTSD in parents! She doesn’t miss an issue with the kids or let anything slip through the cracks. She is an absolute gem, we are beyond grateful to have her as our pediatrician."– Fawn M.
"Have been going to this office for roughly 5 years with 3 kids. We love the convenience, lots of appointment times, and haven’t run into any docs we dislike. My 8 year old sees Dr Houchen-Wise, who is lovely. There is zero judging from her when we say we struggle to eat veggies, etc. and she had some great suggestions when we figured he has some anxiety. My 9-month old twins see Dr. Chiu who was recommended to us by the Docs in the NICU and she has also been wonderful. She listens to my concerns (I’m a nurse) and does something about them, she is thorough with the twins and we are always able to get an appt (even same day when we need it) with her, which I love. PLUS, she’s super friendly! They’ll all be staying with their docs as long as we are able to. I’d absolutely recommend Metro Peds. EDIT: I should also mention the great gals at the front desk. As soon as we walked in one day, one said, “Oh my, the twins have gotten so big!!” with a huge smile. It’s great to be remembered when you’re going to a doctors office. They are so helpful, quick, and friendly."– Amanda S.
"Dr. Chiu is everything we could ask for in a pediatrician without first baby. She was knowledgeable and calm with a great bedside manner. She gave us the information we needed to make informed decisions about our baby without pressuring or judging us for our decisions. She will be a great pediatrician for our daughter."– Brittany W.
"We love love love Dr. Chiu and her whole team! Both my 12 year old and my 9 month old think is is great. And they where all amazing when we brought our preemie home and called every 10 mins with concerns. I can’t recommend them enough!"– Liana W.
"I moved to Metropolitan and Dr. Chiu the end of last year. I can't even tell you how happy we are and how much my boys love Dr Chiu. She takes the time to answer questions and is thorough in her care. She's fantastic all around, so are the nurses and the office staff. I hate saying too much because she will be hard to get into now :) but honestly she deserves all the success, we appreciate her a great deal. I had been with the same pediatrician for 17 years prior to the move to Metropolitan and all I can think now is -- what took us so long!?"– Monique B.
"We just had our first visit with Metropolitan Pediatrics. We saw Dr Catherine Chiu. She was exactly what you would hope for in a Pediatrician and someone whom I wish we had known for our last 20 years of being parents. She listened to my son and gave perfect advice to us. She was thorough and genuine. I would love Dr Chiu to be a family practice physician so our whole family could see her. :)"– Heather S.
"Wonderful experience from the receptionist to the M.A. to the doctor. Dr Chiu listened to me as a parent and also offered advice. She was thorough but also thoughtful in her approach. I would recommend her and this clinic."– Joi K.
We’d love to welcome you into the Metro Pediatrics family!
