Get ready for long waiting times. Bring a few books to read in the waiting room. Or listen to patients yelling at the rude office assistants. Once you make it in to see the doctor, he will take notes as you describe your ailment. If he can't diagnose your problem, he sends you for expensive/unnecessary medical tests. After all of that, good luck having the doctor get back to you on test results. You'll have to go through several extremely rude office workers and leave messages to get anywhere.

I waited an hour and a half to be seen. When he finally entered the exam room he didn't even apologize for the long wait. When I mentioned that I had to miss another appointment because of his lateness he shifted the blame to his office manager and paper work not being completed. Poor bedside manner. Unfortunately, the following week my son also had an appointment which I had to keep. This time we waited an hour.

Dr chug and his staff are excellent,however,the billing department is the worst. Even though my bill was paid, they sent it to a collection agency. It took me months to get it straightened out. If you can't afford to pay up front beware...

The rudest office staff I have ever encountered. I am 91 years old. Dr Chu left early on the day of my appointment and I never received a phone call. When my daughter questioned them they told us they had an incorrect number in the computer. I was extremely distraught and no one apologized for the error. I made an appointment for the next day. When I arrived they informed my daughter that she had cancelled the appointment, not true .They again refused to admit that they again made a mistake.
Excellent doctor but waiting over1 1/2hrs to see the doctor is unreal.
