Dr Chu is my pain doctor. I trust him implicitly and revere his medical ethic. He helps me in spite of excruciating pain and via his expertise with injections, has given me a better life than I could have with all of my problems-from severe degenerative arthritis, unrelenting muscle spasm that makes life extremely difficult and is not well understood, to lupus and more,

Dr. Chu is probably the kindest, smartest doctor that anyone could ask for. He listens to everything and tries to find answers for all of your concerns. I highly recommend him. The nurses in the operating room with him are all excellent and very caring.

Dr. Chu and his resident have gone above and beyond to help get my medication covered. I appreciate Dr. Chu for his concern, expertise, and for truly doing his best to help me with medical condition. I would recommend Dr. Chu to anyone. Best provider I've seen in a long time.

Dr. Chu provided excellent care. He took the time needed to formulate a preliminary diagnosis of my problem and listened to all I had to say about the pain and difficulty moving that I was experiencing. He is also very intelligent--able to hear my descriptions and translate them into diagnostic tests and able to be flexible in his approach to solving the issue.

I like going to this facility.....they are very well organized and don't schedule a lot of people at one time. They all seem very friendly and concerned.
