For me, there was not much that could be done at the time. Dr Chu helped me better understand my condition and guided me in making future decisions. She provided a clear understanding of my options and what to expect in the future. Although my situation will likely deteriorate, I now know what to expect, can plan accordingly, and have a source for future treatment. I liked her kind and straightforward manner.

Dr. Chu and her Staff were wonderful!!!They were efficient, knowledgeable ,caring, and amazing!!!I had been to two other doctors and she immediately addressed the concern. She was not only caring but addressed and treated the problem! She took time to listen and immediately developed a plan for treatment. She provided excellent care!!! I couldn't believe how much better I feel! It was so refreshing to have a doctor that knew immediately what was wrong and treated me right away. Dr. Chu is amazing!

Dr. Chu is one of THE BEST in her specialty. That's why I go to her. On some of my office visits, Dr. C seemed "distant"/aloof, very business-like. More "get in & get out", and on to the next pt. On this ofc visit, she was much more personable, while discussing my medical options. Even asked "a favor" of me - could she show my most recent xray of my right hand to another pt, to show what damage arthritis can do to an index finger "big knuckle". Protecting my privacy, of course. I said, "Yes". I was flattered she wanted to do that. It also meant, to me, she thought of ME as a person and how this damage was affecting me & my life. I wasn't just "another xray".
