in Breese Il |
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!!
in Fairview Heights |
No compliant about Dr Chu. I don't like to get there 15 minutes before appointment time then sit and wait 2-3 houres. It make no sense.
in Fairview Heights, IL |
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.

I have been going to Dr. Chu for several years. I would not want to go to any one else. He is very thorough in his examinations and I trust him completely.
in St Louis, MO |
I've been with Dr. Chu for a very long time and he's great! Only issue I've had is with scheduling urgent visits and the office wait time.
in St Louis, MO |
I have experienced over 13 years of the highest quality medical care from Dr. Chu. He is the best doctor I have known and I don't plan to ever change doctors. He is thorough, intelligent, and has brilliant insight.
