I have never seen a doctor's office run so well. I thought it was a fluke the first time, but my 2nd & 3rd visits were the same. I have already recommended Dr. Chu to a friend.

her bedside manner was certainly lacking, came in asked me "What do you want me to do about it", I felt it was a rude comment, if I were a doctor I would not come see her I would already know what to do about my issue. didn't really have much to say, sending me off for nerve testing. with little to no explanation.

My Internal doctor recommended I see this doc. My first visit I received a shot but more time was giving to my concern and pain.Second visit was very rushed and again I received another shot but was told if pain continued she would do an MRI. My pain is still very painful.No follow up appointment
