Dr. Chu has always been very concerned about me and the amount of pain that I am continuing to be in. My husband just met him yesterday and is very impressed with the knowledge and care that he provides. I would recommend Dr. Chu to anyone needing a pain specialist.

Dr Chu is a great doctor. He explains everything well. He walked me out to the receptions desk. I felt overwhelmed by trying to remember all the things i had to do. He is a very good doctor. He put his arm on my shoulder and took the time and slowly reexplained everything to me. I suffer from cerebral palsy. He bought hiking sticks for me to help me walk easier and to sturdy me. I am very pleased so far with the treatment plan he has planned for me. Dr Chu is a great doctor!!!

Dr. Chu - is one MD that I can say truly listens to my medical concerns & suggestions. He is willing to order diagnostic testing if indicated. He spends a great deal of time with you - that one does not feel rushed - he is very thorough.
