Wildwood, MO |
Dr. Chu is worth the wait, and you will likely wait to see him once you arrive. He is professional and knows his stuff and he takes time with his patients which I appreciate. I refer friends and family to him, which is not something I do lightly. I found him to be excellent.

He always spends more time with the patients then the office has scheduled. So expect him to be running late. But I prefer him to a doctor who rushes through patients assembly line fashion.
in Warrenton, MO |
Dr. Chu has been my daughter's doctor for fifteen years. We wouldn't think of going anywhere else. His office staff is very nice and he is kind and gentle. Our family loves Dr. Chu.
in Arnold, MO |
He was my eye doctor and surgeon from the time I was an infant. He really is one of the best.
Ballwin, MO |
Fantastic human being, expert in his field, if i needed surgery I would 100pct trust and want him. But day to day office stuff is not at all smooth.
