I have degenerative discs in my lower back which caused various levels of pain for 20 years. Epidurals controlled the pain quite well until several years ago when then stopped working. My current doctor suggested Dr. Chu after diet, physical therapy etc. were tried with no results. I met Dr. Chu and discussed the situation and he suggested we try again with epidurals. It was much less painful than my previous ones and provided a significant improvement. I highly recommend him.

I personally had an excellent result from Dr Chu for diagnosis and treatment for back pain. Dr Chu determined that I had pain from several fasciae joints and performed a radio frequency neuroablation on 10/13/2018. I experienced immediate and complete pain relief after the procedure. I found Dr Chu to be very personable and engaging with both patients and staff. He has a wealth of information and experience in pain management, and takes the time to explain and field questions.

I was uneasy about my first epidural, but Dr. Chu and his staff put me at ease. I was impressed by his professionalism & skill during the procedure. It went very well and I am nearly painfree after 3 months. The staff are very organized and work well together.

Completed nerve ablation procedure for on-going lower back pain due to accident. Very thorough. Good bedside manner. Talked through procedure and took time to answer questions. Evaluated pain and mobility at follow-up. Would recommend Dr. Chu to others for pain management.

Dr. Chu addressed my chronic backache by performing a successful radio frequency oblation to the lower lumber region, L4 and L5 as the target. I am now 90% free from any discomfort in the lumbar area. I have had chronic backache for years. I highly recommend Dr. Chu for his professional and thorough approach to treatment. I have the most upmost confidence in his approach to care.

Dr. Chu is one fantastic physician! He is very skilled and determined to help the patient to resolve their pain. He also offered alternatives to treatments if one treatment doesn't work. In other words, he is determined to find the best treatment possible for each patient. Unlike other physicians I had been to, he did a physical exam to see exactly where the pain was. His bedside manner is exceptional. As a registered nurse, I would highly recommend this physician to anyone experiencing pain.

I've suffered a long time with deep burning, at times debilitating, neck pain. Nothing seemed to help. Dr. Chu was great with explaining my condition and recommended a spinal epidural injection. He explained the procedure well and made me feel comfortable. At a month post injection, my pain level is barely a 2! What a relief!! I will definitely contact Dr. Chu if I have any pain management needs in the future.

My experience has been phenomenal. I experienced excruciating pain in my lower back for over 4 years. I had severe spinal stenosis which led to surgery. I was left with severe pain which I tried different doctors and all kinds of medications and various treatments with no relief. Finally I was referred to pain management with my doctor being Dr Chu. It has been great, and I feel better than I have in 4 years. I would absolutely recommend Dr Chi to anyone looking for help in dealing with pain!!!!

Upon my first visit with Dr. Chu, I found his office demeanor very professional, willing to listen and he seemed very knowledgeable about my medical history. His bedside manner is very welcoming and caring. When I had my first procedure done to my lower back, Dr. Chu introduced his staff prior to beginning.. He explained everything that was going on with my procedure and what his staff's participation and responsibilities were going to be. I have already recommended Dr. Chu to a friend of mine.

I had some back and knee pain from injuries in the past. Visiting Dr. Chu greatly helped to reduce the pain I have and I can do most of my normal routines again. His recommendations are good and I'll request to have him as my doctor again.

Dr. Chu is genuinely concerned with the pain levels being experienced by patients. He accurately diagnosed the current cause of my lower-back pain as primarily arthritis in the lumbar facet joints. He recommeended that I continue attending rehabilitation sessions to strengthen and stretch core muscles. He also suggested that I consider an RF nerve block procedure to dull the reaction of nerves in the affected areas. RF nerve block was done four weeks ago and It greatly reduced the pain!!
