Dr. Trisha Vu grew up in Southern California and graduated from UCLA with a degree in physiology and a minor in art history. She recently received her medical degree from Idaho College of Osteopathic Medicine in Meridian, Idaho. She said her passion for medicine began at a young age after the passing of her grandfather from a treatable condition as she witnessed how significant a good physician-patient relationship is in ensuring the best care possible. After spending time as a geriatric medical scribe and furthering her clinical education in Montana, she continued to see the importance of connecting with patients and has remained focused on providing compassionate care. After living in Idaho and Montana the past few years, she said she is looking forward to continuing to live in the Pacific Northwest and getting to spend some more time with extended family in Washington. In her free time, she enjoys traveling, hiking, baking, playing board games and tennis.
