Learn about this Doctor

Care Philosophy

OUR MISSION It is our mission to identify the source of pain, give effective interventional treatments and help to set realistic goals, so that our patients can achieve the most functional and productive life style possible. We try to provide cost effective care and minimize reliance on health care resources. OUR PHILOSOPHY Use as little medication as possible: Expecting medications alone to solve all chronic pain problems is unrealistic. "Pain killers" may temporarily help control pain, but they are not a cure and long term may have undesirable side effects. In the course of treatment, narcotic therapy may be necessary and will be monitored and optimized as treatment progresses. We will combine appropriate interventional techniques to help you control your pain.Read more

I have been seeing dr. Chiu for about 9 months. I had four different sessions of injections..... Dr. Chu has been an excellent doctor and explained everything to me if I don't understand he will explain it to me again. Dr. Chu staff has been good sometimes there's a long wait ,but for good service sometimes you have to wait and not be rude.

    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.
