Dr. Chew's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Chew "Pacific ENT is an Otolaryngology practice serving patients throughout Chinatown, San Francisco, California. This facility is home to two experienced physicians: Clifford Chew, MD, and Dexter Louie, MD. They offer a variety of services to their patients, including sinus surgery, allergy testing, sleep apnea treatment, audiology services, and more. The practice began in 1980 as Dexter Louie, MD. In 2009, the practice became known as Pacific ENT Associates, Inc. Throughout its history, Pacific ENT has always been a community-based practice. Because the practice is located in Chinatown, it serves primarily Asian populations. However, all patients are welcome, including uninsured patients, MediCal patients, and referrals from the San Francisco Free Clinic. Pacific ENT focuses on providing quality care to every patient. Our doctors treat patients and referring physicians respectfully, fairly, and honestly. We value and expect competence, character, and compassion from our staff and our physicians. We also value our patients' time, as well as the trust of referring physicians. Call or schedule your appointment online at Pacific ENT."
