      Dr. Chu is the best doctor I have ever dealt with ever by far. She is straightforward and direct, but nice and calm. She is very confident in herself and her work. I had to have surgery a week ago with a severe case of hydronephrosis in my right kidney. She did an amazing job and her surgical staff is just wonderful. She checked my urine throughly and made sure I was clean before surgery. Her surgical nurses were so nice and friendly and made me not so scared for surgery. Lei Chu is the best!

      I find Dr. Chu to be very personable, she informed me of my procedure in plain terms so that I understood exactly what she is doing and why, she does what so many doctors fail to do in that she telephones to make certain that all is well, this means so much to me as a patient, I find Clarissa, the office person to be very nice as well. I highly recommend Dr Chu

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Chu's Care Philosophy

      Dr. Lei Chu takes time explaining conditions and treatment plans with her patients. She believes every patient is different and the best treatment plan should be a combination of the physician and patients' wisdom. She gives her own written instructions to patients before and after procedures, and explain every step of the procedure allowing patients to understand and remain comfortable during treatments.

      Dr. Chu says...

      Dr. Chu specializes in urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse and robotic surgery. She has great success from midurethral slings, transvaginal or robotic vaginal prolapse repairs, and robotic prostatetomy, robotic partial nephrectomy, and robotic sacrocolpopexy. For her patients with urinary incontinence, she performs urodynamics herself along with her nurse, allowing her to fully understand the abnormality and comes up with the best treatment plan.
