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.

Chu\'s hair was dirty. She was in a hurry. She was not interested in positively, thoroughly exploring all possible medical options. She was a busy woman...moving on to the next dollar. I feel the time & money was a waste with her. She wouldn\'t even go over the x-rays of my hands with me. Or talk about everything I could possibly do to help with pain & cracking of fingers. So far, in the Baylor, Scott & White network, she\'s been the 1st real big disappointment & waste of time & money. I\'ll discourage others from bothering to even see her

Dr was extremely punctual, and appeared to extremely knowledgeable. She told me what the problem was and to exercise it with a warm water soak before and ice after. I\'m not exactly sure what that will do for the injury. Maybe it was simply her bedside manner. She did seem interested in another problem I have that she identified on her own.

She seemed very rushed. She gave me a steroid injection in my thumb and was \'out the door\'. Then I remembered to ask about a brace when she was at the door, and she said yes, wear one when you want. After leaving, I realized that I had wanted a recommendation for the best brace, or a prescription. And, I had no idea what to expect for side effects from my injection, or what the name of the medication injected was. It seems like she would anticipate these questions, rather than me having to come up with them in the seconds I had to ask.
