Dr. Chu was clear and concise about what the options were for my treatment. she stayed on task and seemed present in the moment during my time with her. if you need a warm and fuzzy approach, she might not be your first choice. BUT if you want clear and concise information and a doctor who appears to run a tight ship, I would recommend her.

I'm very impressed with Dr. Chu. I saw her the day after I broke my wrist. I was still getting used to the fact it was a break and not a sprain, when she mentioned the word "surgery." I wasn't mentally prepared to hear that. Dr. Chu took the time to explain why she thought surgery was the best option, but she explained the other options as well. Throughout my treatment, she always took the time to answer all my questions. I did have the surgery, and I'm very pleased with the outcome - in terms of function & appearance. I would highly recommend Dr. Chu.

I have nothing but good things to say about this visit. As this was a first visit, I did feel like it wasn't personalized- in that my condition was "routine." As a way to improve, I would have liked a little more description of it and what options existed in the future for taking care of it.

She didn't ask any questions except what's going on, after doing the X-ray she didn't explain what she was looking at, I felt rushed.

Although Dr. Chu felt my condition was straightforward she seemed to be very fast with her evaluation and assessment. The discussion she had with me could have been slower and all of my questions would have been answered.
