About Carol J. Chow, NP-C

Carol J Chow, NP-C, is a nurse practitioner with Keck Medicine of USC, bringing over twenty years of nursing experience to the Upper GI and General Surgery team.  During her ten years with them, she has developed a close working relationship with the entire team and has become an expert in both the gastrointestinal disease physiology and surgical treatment options. This allows her to be there for her patients at every point in their healing journey—the moment they walk in the door, in the OR, and during their recovery process.


A native of Southern California, Carol earned her undergraduate degree from UCLA.  She then obtained her Master’s degree and Nurse Practitioner certification from Western University of Health Sciences.  Staying local has allowed her to feel close ties to the community.

While education and training are involved with becoming an NP, I believe that nurses embody much more than things that can be taught; we have an innate quality of caring and empathy.  There is something intangible about the care you receive from a nurse that is unique to any other healthcare profession.  I’m committed to providing both physical and emotional care to my patients.  Building that kind of trust is the most important part of my work.
