Dr. Zubin B. Chacko was born and raised in Houston, TX. Growing up in the Alief area, Dr. Chacko was heavily involved in numerous extracurricular activities during his school years. Choral singing was extremely close to his heart during his formative years and as a result saw him competing at district, regional, and state levels. He attended Houston Baptist University where he graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science with majors in both Biology and Mathematics. Dr. Chacko then went on to complete both an MBA and MHA at Houston Baptist University before entering the business arena. After a couple of years in the field, the prevailing economic climate and job dissatisfaction caused him to seriously consider going back to school. A helpful suggestion from his wife, a degree in science, and an internal desire to find a profession that served others made Dr. Chacko settle on the decision to go back to optometry school. He attended the University of Houston College of Optometry where he was awarded a Clinical Letter of Excellence and was also given the honor by his classmates to be their 2017 student graduation commencement speaker.
