I had not met Dr. Chu prior to having my surgery. But she spoke with me as I was being prepped and following the surgery. She is very skilled and explained the procedure to me. My injury has healed very well and her follow-up visits have shown steady progress. Dr. Chu has taken time with me to answer my questions and help me all through.

She always appears to be in a rush to get in and out of the room. Consequently, I feel that I need to respond very quickly and probably shorten what I would like to say as she needs to move on to the next patient.
