Had an emergency need for an ENT due to a broken nose. Chose Dr. Chu due to high reviews and location. Was able to obtain an appointment ASAP. The staff was very efficient and my wait time was short. Dr. Chu was amazing in how he thoroughly explained my prognosis and risks. Highly recommend this great doctor and staff.

I recently had a Balloon Sinuplastic performed by Dr. Chu & could not have been in better hands. Not only is his staff professional and courteous, they take the time to explain, before and again on the day of the procedure. Specially his nurse, Betsy, I'm not sure I could have gone through with the procedure. It is a rough first 8 hours, but it all changes, no pain during procedure, just for a few hours after. All good the next day except stuffy nose for a few days.
