Dr. Chua is extremely knowledgeable and caring. I went to her for a second opinion and immediately decided to switch to her as my doctor. Her bedside manners are flowless. She would never cause an unnecessary discomfort or pain to a patient. The surgery went well and quickly. I would definitely recommend Dr. Chua to other people.

When looking for a colorectal physician on-line, I randomly picked Dr. Chua. It was the best blind selection I could of possibly made. She is very personable and had the ability to make me laugh while undergoing several in-office procedures.

I’ve been seeing Dr. Chua for almost 2 years. She is an excellent surgeon, she is extremely knowledgeable and explains everything so that you can really understand what needs to be done, how long it will take and future expectations. She is very compassionate, caring and reassuring. She makes you feel comfortable, listens and attends to your overall concerns. She has always asked about how my pain is and has been, resulting in my getting through each procedure with very little discomfort. She has surpassed my expectations. She is kind, patient, a great listener and also a fantastic communicator. I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Chua to all my friends and family.

This was the second time I have seen Dr. Chua. She quickly assessed my problem and got me set for surgery the next day. Although she did not perform the surgery, I wouldn't hesitate having her perform a procedure. I can highly recommend putting your trust in Dr. Chua.

The first time I met Dr. Chua I felt very comfortable in her care. After having her perform a colonoscopy I was reassured she knew what she was doing. She is very knowledgeable in her visits and explains everything in terms easy to understand. After she told me I need surgery, I was a bit apprehensive, but she explained the procedure with me and my husband, I feel much more relaxed with the decision.

Very good doctor, listens well. Takes the time to explain issues. Only negative is she is very expensive. I've been to a lot of specialists and she is almost $100 more for my visit than the most expensive I have seen. Almost had a heart attack when I saw the bill.

Dr. Chua asked questions of me and listened to my answers so that she had a good understanding of my particular situation. Her explanations were good and as she did the procedure she explained everything that she would be doing before she did it. She made me feel at ease and as comfortable as possible during the visit. I feel very comfortable continuing to seek treatment with her in the future.
