What People Say About Dr. Christina Chu, MD
Reply
Dr. Chu performed my surgery just a month ago, and I can't say enough good things about her. She was the only 1 of 4 gyn oncologists that I visited who took the time to explain my options, and wasn't immediately pushing for a hysterectomy. She knows her stuff. She won't pull her punches, but she will also put you at ease. Can't ask for more than that -- and she has a great team.
