We had an appointment and there was a major car accident so we arrived 10 minutes late. The receptionist said that Dr. Chu's time was valuable and he couldn't meet with us. I explained that my daughter was brand new to the medication and was having side effects due to the medication and it was very important that we see him.and yet they still would not let us see him. Very strange. Seems like Dr. Chu is running the office like a fast food restaurant prescribing pills and no follow up. SCARY!
