Care Philosophy

My goal is two-fold: 1) to provide high level and up-to-date clinical care with the utmost compassion and respect, 2) by regarding patients as active participants in their own care and providing them with knowledge to do so.

Patient Comments (5)
in Folsom ca |
Dr Chu is a thoughtful, kind and professional OB who always takes the time to answer any and all questions. He truly is a gifted listener. He always goes the extra mile for his patients. He has helped me though fertility issues, a miscarriage, and the birth of my little boy. It's like having a friend in the delivery room.
in Sacramento, CA |
Dr. Chu provides the utmost care to his patients, with thorough explanations and a calm demeanor. I have never felt rushed during an appointment, and I have never felt more cared for by a physician. His level of care is unmatched, and it gives me peace of mind to know that he'll be the doctor to deliver my baby himself (not whomever is on call, as in other OB/Gyn offices). He takes the BEST care of his patients.
Roseville ca |
Dr Chu is knowledgeable, kind and compassionate. He has a calm demeanor which puts patients at ease. I would definitely recommend him to friends and family.
in Sacramento, CA |
Dr Chu has an excellent bed-side manner and calming presence in the delivery room. He made this very anxious first time-mom feel at ease and supported throughout every step of my pregnancy and delivery experience. Dr Chu allows ample time for his patients to ask questions and not feel rushed during appointments. His responsiveness to patients and availability to answer questions between visits is reassuring and allows for a strong doctor-patient relationship.
in Sacramento, CA |
Dr. Chu was my doctor throughout my two pregnancies. He is kind, patient, and really takes the time to listen to his patients. I had a high risk pregnancy and he managed it extremely well and made sure I saw the appropriate specialists. He is the best doctor I have ever had, hands down.
