Dr. Chu's assistant, I believe Dr. McCreary, was helpful in assessing my medical needs prior to meeting with Dr. Chu. Dr. Chu was familiar with my various medical problems (he reviewed my health chart prior to visiting with me), and was knowledgeable about my Fibromyalgia/Small Fiber Neuropathy. He quickly formulated a plan of testing/treatment that seemed to me to address my various health concerns, which are complex because I have so many varied neuropathies. It was also apparent that he was assessing my appropriateness for a possible course of monitored narcotic therapy. I am determined to be compliant whatever his course of treatment, as I am currently in such discomfort that finding the right course of long-term treatment cannot come too quickly to me. This is because of the increased anxiety and insomnia I have been experiencing since my shoulder tendon repair six months ago. Patience and endurance is what I must focus on. I feel hopeful in Dr. Chu's care.

Dr. Chu and his staff is very professional, pleasant, caring and compassionate. He explains everything, shows me my MRI and the reason for the problems I am experiencing. We talk about my past, present and any future problems I may have and explains in detail with any tests or procedures that need to be done. He is a wonderful physician and I am always very optimistic when I leave his office.

February 06, 2017

I am very thankful for the care I am receiving.

February 06, 2017

Dr Chu thoroughly talked with me, but offered me no help. Wish someone had answers.
