Dr Chu operated on me for a poplateal aneurysm without his expertise I would have most likely lost my leg. I still have it and thank God for him every day.

Dr Chu resently performed carotid artery surgery on me and I have nothing but praise for him and his skills. Without his knowledge and professional advice, I probably wouldn't be able to leave this comment today. I highly recommend him and his staff. Thank You!
