Dr. Chu is uncomparably the best doctor that I have ever met. She has genuine care for her patients and actually knows what she is talking about. I would strongly recommend her for everyone who is has type 1 Diabetes. Dr. Chu is truly the best.

I typically go to a naturopathic DR for my hypothyroid but had my levels checked with my primary care DR. She referred me to Dr. Chu to go over my results. I honestly thought I would have been given a prescription and out of the office in 10min. That was not the case! Dr. Chu spent 45min with me going over everything in great detail and answering many of my questions with a honest and kind heart. She is so knowledgeable and genuine. I left with answered questions and no medications! 5 + stars!
