Resident of the Month

The October Resident-of-the-Month award goes to…….

Abigail Chua



Below are some comments about Abby 's performance:



“…(for a ) complicated patient of mine… I was very

impressed with Abby's leadership skills and clinical

judgment, and how masterfully she directed the team 

and coordinated the work-up.”



“NW6 staff would like to nominate Dr. A. Chua for the 

month of October. She is a dedicated and well respected 

member of the team.  She is always pleasant and receptive 

to staff, peers, patients, family members.…she is very

clear that all of the patients’ needs are met and relays 

that information to the team.”


“ She is very caring and always attends to the 

needs of patients and very respectful to the staff.”


“Abigail… is passionate, caring, knowledgeable,

 and extremely approachable.  She always has 

a smile on her face and can light up a room with

a warmth and care you can feel.  Her patients 

always speak highly of her and she always handles 

difficult situations with such grace and 

professionalism, which is difficult to do on 

such a challenging floor.  She is indeed a RockNResident.”

Congratulations to Abigail and a big thanks to 

all our conscientious and hard-working residents 

who take great care of our patients day after day. 

We have an outstanding program because of their dedication and commitment to learning 

and to excellent patient care. 



Please remember our “Resident of the Month” initiative 

which honors Internal Medicine interns and residents 

who have displayed exemplary service to our patients, 

colleagues, and educational mission.   Anyone can 

nominate one of our house staff for “Resident of the Month” by emailing
