We have had a great experience with Dr. Chu. She is attentive, patient, has great beside manners, and is a top notch surgeon. Highly recommended.
Staten Island, NY |
Dr Chu is an amazing doctor!! Her skill, professionalism and bed side manner are perfect!! She cared for both of my children, several times and each time I was confident they were in the best hands. I'll recommend Dr Chu to everyone I know. I've started already. =)
Dr. Chu is a really great doctor. When my daughter injured her wrist playing volleyball I was extremely worried she would never be able to play again and being a helicopter mom I couldn't help but ask a million questions and being a New Yorker maybe also a tad bit... emphatic. Dr. Chu initially seemed to be reserved but when she patiently answered my 100th call and explained the care of the cast to me over and over I began to realize that she cares about her patient... and their moms.

Lovely demeanor
Brooklyn, NY |
We had a great experience with Dr. Chu! She is quick, efficient and definitely knows what she is doing. I was a mess after we were given the referral by our pediatrician but she was so reassuring I was quickly at ease. She took great care of our two-year old daughter - will definitely be recommending her to our friends...

Very caring and helpful

Dr. Chu did a great job on my daughter's arm. My brother in law is an orthopedic surgeon and even he was impressed.
in Staten Island, NY |
My 14 year old daughter presented with enlarged thigh muscles on one leg. Dr Chu suspected a tumor. Both Dr Chu and Lisa her office manager spent hours on the phone with my insurance company to get approval for an MRI. She did not have a tumor and Dr Chu recommended a neurologist and genetics specialist. They helped facilitate getting appointments with these specialists. Dr Chu also emailed me on two occasions. She was knowledgeable and proactive.

I had horrible experience just trying to get appointment w/ her. She is VERY unprofessional & has terrible availability, so my first appointment was month in advance. Her office called to cancel the appointment two days prior to the appt, stating she had an emergency. I rescheduled for a few more weeks later, again due to lack of availability. The office just called to cancel again, stating emergency. She wasted 2 months of time and inconsiderate of working people who can't take off easily.
