I have been seeing Dr. Chu for over a year now and I wish all my doctors were as dedicated and caring as he is. He never rushes you and makes you feel like a person who he genuinely cares about.

Dr Chu is the best! You would have to search far and wide to find a doctor that’s as dedicated, caring, kind and compassionate as he is. If he’s not sure of something he makes it his business to find out. My husband received exceptional care from Dr Chu. He is a beautiful person and an excellent doctor. Thank you Dr Chu

Dr. Chu is thoughtful, thorough & soft-spoken, but also warm and personable. My son & I both see him, but for different disorders. We each posed a diagnostic challenge, & we're relieved to finally have answers & treatments that work. Dr, Chu &/or his wonderful PA, Chris, have spent as much time with us as we've needed- explaining the "what" and the "why" of our blood tests, the results and what they mean. Dr Chu & the entire team have been exceptional ~ genuinely caring and kind.
