I broke my shoulder in 3 places. Dr Chu saw me within 1 1/2 hours of calling the office. I was ina tremendous amount of pain & her immediate attention to my injury saved me from having surgery!!!. I would HIGHLY RECCOMEND her to anyone with an arm - hand or shoulder injury.

Dr. Chu and her staff come with my highest recommendation and I would definitely see her again should the need arise. I was seen on time, had x-rays taken, Dr. Chu explained care for my injury, and I was on my way within about 15-20 minutes. It was probably the smoothest and most efficient doctor visit I\'ve ever had. Outstanding.

The only reason Dr Chu is not getting a 10 is due to the way she gave me a steroid injection. I had never had one before and was not expecting it to hurt like that. She stuck me so quickly, without any warning (as in: "this is going to hurt for a minute" or something!! to warn me). It\'s a minor observation and now I\'ll know what to expect if I ever need another injection like that. A little warning would have been nice.
