Dr Chu is an excellent doctor ! The best I have ever had. Very smart

Dr Chu and the resident doctor were wonderful. Very friendly, made me perform movements related to my pain, listened to my experiences and what was hurting me then discussed several options that agreed with my life schedule. I was initially scheduled with a different doctor who apparently left the practice but I'm sold on Dr. Chu. I've seen many, many doctors as a type 1 diabetic for 48 years and Dr. Chu is way up there with the best, ever! He also sent me for x-rays and finally correctly diagnosed my pain areas.

Dr. Chi is my pain management Doctor not my primary care so some of these questions were not applicable. He is a wonderful doctor who gives his all to help. He clearly explains everything. I would most definitely recommend him to everyone.

March 16, 2016

It has been a while since I saw Dr. Chu. Due to Dr. Cortazzo no longer seeing patients I switched back. He is an Excellent physician and I am glad he is still with UPMC.

March 15, 2016

Dr. Chu gained a new loyal patient in,myself. He was phenominal. I had minimal interaction with the staff, but everybody was great.

March 10, 2016

Dr.Chu was really great at letting me know exactly what was going on with my back i. The time that I was seen by him than any other Dr I've seen so far concerning my back problems .

Dr. Chu is a model Physician. More Doctors should follow his techniques.
