I'm going to make this short. Dr. Chu is amazing with the most down to earth bed side manner. The necessity to see a Ear, Nose, and Throat specialist came suddenly and not knowing anyone in Austin, I relied on reviews. Boy did I nail this one and grateful to be able to get in to see him and for him to be in Austin. Thanks doc!!!
