We are so happy to have found Dr. Chu after years of jumping from one doctor to another. We finally found someone who listens to us, takes the time to explain things, and clearly cares about our son.

I truly don't feel Dr.Chu is deserving on 1 star. She gave an awful first impression and I just decided to give her another opportunity however her lack of care, compassion is disgustingly upsetting. My son is 13 yrs old and has been suffering from Epilepsy since age 3 I called because he had repeated episodes of seizures over the weekend and when I called I didn't get a response for nearly 10 hrs. She should not be a Doctor for she's lacking the care, compassion. UNEXCEPTABLE!!
