Dr. Chu expertly helped with my shoulder problem
He listened and answered my questions about my problem. He explained my condition and recommended a course of therapy which was successful. Appointment was not hurried. He took the time to evaluate and explain everything to me.

Best Surgeon I have ever been operated on by.
3rd shoulder surgery. This is the best I have ever felt 2 and 1/2 months post operation. Started with the initial visit right on thru the surgery and very early into recovery. His office staff is great, his skill is unprecedented and he is as good, if not better, than my surgeon friend and physical therapist said he would be.

Dr. Ben Chu - review
I originally was referred to Dr. Chu by Dr. William Spellman for surgery to repair a very badly torn rotator cuff due to a road accident. From the beginning he was completely focused and engaged with me on the decision for best treatment and he was always available for any questions and concerns, before, during and after the operation. Today, after the required months of physical therapy following the operation, I am happy to say my injury is healing very well and I am now on the way to being completely healed with a fully functional shoulder! I would recommend Dr. Chu to everyone who needs an excellent orthopedic physician and surgeon.

Doctor really listens, provides excellent care
I have now had two visits with Dr. Chu. At each, I was impressed by his willingness to listen to me and his thoroughness in explaining my options. He was honest about the options and the likelihood of success. When I had my first cortisone shots, he prepared me for what they might feel like and explained what he was doing each step of the way. He also did an excellent job administering those shots. Dr. Chu was my third try with a local orthopedist and I must say the third time was the charm.

Professional and Caring
I found Dr.Chu to be a cut above other doctors. He sincerely listened to my leg problems, actually looked at me, was not busy with a computer and gave me a plan for improvement, which was physical therapy. Now I am doing much better and am happy I met him.

I saw Dr. Chu for an arm problem in November/December 2021. I was able to get an appointment within a reasonable time frame, had no trouble finding his office and parking and was seen on time for both visits that I had scheduled. Dr. Chu is an attentive listener, encouraged questions and was able to provide information at an appropriate level for my comprehension. I will use him again for any further orthopedic needs I may have.

Dr Chu was kind and caring. He explained my issues in detail and language that I could understand. He gave me all of my options and encouraged me to make the final decision on what to do moving forward. He took the time to answer all of my questions. Once I made my decision he supported me and put a plan into action. When I left his office I felt comfortable with my decision to move forward with a treatment plan that was best for me. Thank You Dr. Chu!!

Dr. Chu is a wonderful doctor, compassionate, excellent listener and communicator, uses conservative measures whenever possible and follows through. Was introduced to him about 10 years ago at another facility, has helped me through two sprained ankles, a knee fall, shoulder bursitis, foot tendonitis and trigger finger. Great head to toe care:) All has healed in a timely way. Physical therapists where I was treated have raved about him and confirmed his great reputation! I highly recommend him for any orthopedic care. He is a gem of a doctor in deed!

Dr. Chu performed bicep surgery on me and I couldn't be happier with the results. He answered all my questions before and after the operation in a straight forward way and I never felt pressured to end my appointment because he had other patients waiting for him. Highly recommended.

I went to Dr Chu due to nagging hip pain that prevented me from running. Dr. Chu took the time to understand background on what likely caused the injury. After checking range of motion on both legs, and examining x-rays, he explained in understandable terms the likely reason for the dull pain and sporadic sharp twinge I was experiencing. He prescribed physical therapy and was going to directly contact my physical therapist to clarify guidance provided. I appreciated Dr Chu's friendly style. He quickly diagnosed my injury and took the time needed to explain injury and what I should do for rehab. I highly recommend.
