Dr. Chau has multiple local veterinarians as her personal clients, seeing their pets as their primary doctor.  Many of her former staff who work at other clinics still bring their pets to see Dr. Chau despite working at other locations.  Dr. Chau has been identified as among the best general veterinarians in the Northern Virginia area as recently as 2020 by Northern Virginia Living (nominated by other veterinarians.)  She has been interviewed in the Washington Post, appeared on WJLA 7 news, and has contributed to national veterinary publications.
