Patient Comments (2)
in Hereford, TX |
Several years ago doctors at North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo, MS told me I was in good health, and I had anxiety, they told me there was nothing wrong with my heart, arteries, or veins, it was all anxiety. Upon arriving in Amarillo Dr. Chu immediately brought me in to check me out, a few days later Dr. Chu performed two angioplasty on me, he also placed a stent as well. Dr. Chu saved my life, while other doctors told me I had anxiety, I highly recommend Dr. Chu.

Dr. Chu is my mother's cardiologist. He is a very competent and capable physician. His care and concern for his patients is immeasurable. I would recommend anyone looking for a great heart doctor to contact his office. He is the best.
