    The staff kept my mother waiting for 3 hours the only reason she was called in was because the Dr realized she was there waiting. There was no apology from anyone. She was also hospitalized for becoming anemic and the Dr failed to recognize the tren, treat or recommend she see someone for treatment. The Dr and the office are substandard at best.

    I love Dr Chu!!! Not only did she catch a diagnosis for me, that several doctors had missed, but, she really cares about improving my health. She has also been willing to work with the various insurance companies that I've had in the past two years, (no small feat!). Honestly, the thing I like best about her is that it feels like we are in partnership to improve my health. She respects my concerns and answers my questions thoroughly and is very generous. (And a seriously snazzy dresser!!)

    She diagnosed me with Lupus 2 years ago and I haven't seen her since. I have only seen her physician's assistant; Who is very nice, but has done nothing at all to help me. The front desk staff is completely incompetent and rude. I have called four times for them to send me my medical records and they still haven't sent them. This last time I called they told me they couldn't find my chart. Are you serious? I'm there every 4 months and you can't find my chart?? I'm done with this practice

    Alice Chu is a wonderful doctor. She’s truly compassionate, caring and very supportive. She understands her patients and works to ease their pain and suffering. Because she is sympathetic to all aspects of her patients’ needs and care, she is willing to work with her patients on all issues even financial. Alice Chu is a rare gem. A remarkable doctor. I highly recommend her services.

    Dr. Chu is a great doctor but my experience with her staff has not been good. For that alone, I will not be returning and switching doctors. I found them not helpful or empathetic to the patient.
