Dr. Renee Dua is Founder and Chief Medical Officer of Heal – an LA-based start-up providing on-demand house call medicine. Dr. Dua is a Board certified nephrologist and internal medicine doctor who has served as Chief of Medicine at Valley Presbyterian and Simi Valley Hospital. After building a thriving private practice and also teaching medicine at UCLA, Dr. Dua embarked on her greatest adventure, being mom to her first child, a now 15-month old little boy. It was her son that led her to create Heal, because she knew moms and dads everywhere needed an easier way to see a doctor. As a mom-doctor doing her first start-up, Dr. Dua often jokes she’s a doctor-mom-preneur. Dr. Dua resides in the Pacific Palisades with her husband and son.
