It has always been a pleasure over the past 20 years to have Dr. Chu as my cardiologist whom I have had ultimate confidence in his ability to insure my health is maintained to the best quality that is possible. His professional competence is of the highest quality. The friendly nature and concern for the well being of the patient is certainly a plus when anyone is searching for a highly qualified Cardiologist.
