The mission of a physician, including Cardiologists, is to commit to a lifelong service with utmost compassion, sympathy and sensitivity that serve the best interests of our patients in the most humane ways possible. With God as our guiding grace, achieving these goals makes our profession noble.”

Dr. Matt Chua’s interest in medicine was borne out from an inspiring journey that he took from observing his father’s practice of primary care in his native country, the Philippines. After earning his undergraduate and medical degree from the University of Santo Tomas (Philippines), he completed both his internship and residency training in New Jersey. During his residency, he was awarded “Best Teacher and Most Academically Oriented Resident,” and he also served as the Chief Resident. Dr. Chua completed a fellowship in cardiovascular medicine in 2015.

His greatest satisfaction in his work comes from helping his patients achieve a healthy body that translates to a better quality of life. Dr. Chua enjoys working closely with esteemed and respected institutions and aspires eventually to contribute to the community.

In his leisure time, Dr. Chua enjoys traveling to explore new places and find amazing adventures along the way. He is passionate about any music genre and likes watching movies and plays. He finds time to play basketball with his friends or watch sport shows in general. Cooking or simply enjoying food and trying new cuisine provides great enthusiasm for him.
