Dr. Chu is an excellent physician- the last of his kind. The wait times are attributed to the fact that he thoroughly assesses EACH patient during their visit. Most physicians rush you out after 5-10 minutes. I don’t mind waiting for a doctor willing willing to listen to my concerns as he does for each and every one of his patients.

Dr Chu is very skilled, professional and compassionate. He answers calls in a timely manner and helps patients practice preventative medicine. I trust him implicitly and have referred many people to his practice. He gives you as much time as you need and never rushes you.

I made an initial appointment with Dr. Chu and forgot about the appointment by mistake. . .I apologized about missing the appointment and the receptionist told me that I needed to "go find a new PCP" because I was kicked out of the system. She was very rude, unsympathetic, and unforgiving. If this is how Dr. Chu runs his office, I am more than glad to find another PCP. . Even if he came with high recommendations. . .he and his office wont get that from me. Family and friends will know!!!

I have been going to Dr. Chu for 15 years. He is a kind, knowledgeable, understanding, keeps up on the latest medical news & does not rush you when you are seen. It is difficult to find a doctor who does all of these things!!

Dr. Chu is great. He's very caring and thorough. But I am getting a new doctor because I don't have time to wait up to 4 hours past my appointment time and it's ridiculous. Whoever handles their scheduling needs to be replaced with someone who understand what they are doing.
