I had an appointment today with Dr. Chug. I received an email and text yesterday confirming my appointment today. When I arrived at the office, I did not have an appointment. I scheduled the appointment online and according to the office staff the online appointment and office do not communicate. There should be a disclaimer online to advise prospective patients. I had to make arrangements to get there and pay for parking FOR NOTHING!

Dr Chug is so friendly. Very refreshing to have a knowledgeable doctor explain things without being short or dismissive. He really listens, and tries to understand your concerns not only give any answer, do not be fooled by his candid personality he knows his stuff! He saved me from bouncing around again back and forth with the ENT.
