      Dr. Chu is amazing! He listened and took time to hear everything going on with my knee and referred me to a wonderful PT. At my MRI the tech also talked about how wonderful he is, so it felt good to know I had the best doctor. He never thought I was silly, and he took everything I said seriously, with an ease very few doctors have. While I hope my body doesn't need another ortho visit, if I do I will most certainly be visiting Dr. Chu!

      I am an avid runner, and developed arthritis in my toe. Dr. Chu sat and took the time to diagnose and explain everything to me clearly. I highly recommend him and his entire team!

      I had a great experience with Dr. Chu who treated me for shoulder problems (two rotator cuff tears, bone spur, calcium deposits, torn bicep tendon). He was not quick to push surgery and recommended weeks of PT before he concluded that surgery was the only option for me. As a senior baseball player over 70, I felt confident that I would be able to play again after the surgery and re-hab. I am now close to that point and the healing has gone extremely well. Dr. Chu gave me confidence by explaining the entire procedure and was there for me afterwards. At office visits I never felt rushed and was able to ask as many questions as I needed. I would highly recommend him and although I don’t desire more surgery, should something else happen, I would not hesitate to return.

      Dr Chu did an outstanding job removing a significant amount of scar tissue in and on my knee that had been crippling me up and severely impacting my mobility. Beyond his surgical skills, he is also an exceptionally communicative physician who talked to me and treated me as a human being and not just as a knee that required treatment. Dr. Chu went to great lengths to explain the procedure and in our post surgical meeting he gave me a series of photos showing before and after removal of the scar tissue that graphically demonstrated the extent of the problem I would not hesitate to rely on his expertise in the future should I ever require it.

      Dr Chu and his nurse Dawn make a great team. Dr Chu always explains everything to expect before a procedure. Dr Chu and Dawn are personable, professional and I am happy to recommend and I have. I appreciate Dr Chu's suggestions to help relieve pain that are not medications, it is nice to have options to try. Thanks Dr Chu and Dawn!!

      He explains everything so you can understand the surgery you’re going to have. He preforms the surgery expertly. After surgery he explains how the procedure went (with really cool pictures) and what to expect with recovery. I have had 3 surgeries with Dr. CHU and I recommend him highly.

      The visit went well. Dr. Chu was very knowledgeable about his assessment of my problem. Front desk staff was unprofessional. Talking about being out the night before and what they did so loud I couldn’t concentrate on the paperwork.

      Follow up for broken right upper arm. Dr Chu was professional, great bedside manner, very clear about diagnosis and instructions. Recommended by PT therapist. Excellent experience. I felt better just being seen by Dr Chu.

      Dr. Chu is amazing. He really cares about you as person first and how the situation you are going through affects your quality of life. He was so through with the diagnosis and options. I usually don’t remember anything a doctor tells you, but he was able to communicate to me my diagnosis in a way I not only understood but remembered after leaving the office. So thankful for Dr. Chu!

      I have been going to Dr. Chu for years for various orthopedic needs. Most recently Dr. Chu performed rotator cuff surgery on me. He thoroughly explained the procedure, healing process and recovery. I had follow up visits to ensure my recovery on on track and he always read and reviewed my PT's notes and comments prior to my appointment. I highly recommend Dr. Chu for orthopedic surgery.

      I saw Dr. Chu for a ruptured ACL. I didn't know much about the injury or the treatment options going into my first appointment with Dr. Chu. At my first appointment, Dr. Chu thoroughly explained my injury and what treatment option was best for me. Every appointment after that with Dr. Chu, I felt heard and his attention toward me as a patient was always there 100%. Dr. Chu is by far the best doctor I've ever had and I'm beyond grateful that he got me back to my daily activities!

      My experience, after breaking my hip, with Dr. Chu was excellent. He was spot on with all I could expect after I had rods and screws installed to repair the break. His follow-ups were very informative and Dr. Chu explained things in plain language. Thank you Dr. Chu
