5 years ago I have visited Dr. Chu( my PCP sent me to him because of the results from MRI). Dr. Chu completed very skillfully bone marrow biopsy and analyzed the X-ray results. Hi confirmed the diagnosis of bone cancer(MM). Later I underwent chemotherapy and transplant at Columbia Medical School with another doctor. Now I am thinking about visiting Dr. Chu again for follow up exams and possible treatments.
