Review for Dr. Rosenthal

Dr. Chu is excellent. The office staff is great and helpful. From the first visit to after surgery, excellent care given. Dr. Chu takes time with questions, listens to what symptoms are, gives advice on steps to take, etc. . . Dr. Chu and staff are highly recommended

Review for Dr. Chu

He did not talk to me. I assume he is a skillful surgeon. His Physician's Assistant, Marina, was extremely helpful.
