Dr. Alan Chu is very good at explaining and helping me to understand my condition, as well as, helping me to understand how to best approach my plan of care, of which both are very important to me. Dr. Chu is also a really good listener. This aspect of his care is important to me as I begin to age. I have full confidence Dr. Chu's care.

Dr Chu is the most caring Doctor. He is not only concerned about your physical needs, but also emotional status. You should find a way to clone him :-)

Dr. Chu is what we all want our physicians to be: a knowledgeable, careful communicator and an empathetic listener. His patience with pain issues and his desire to explore all possible solutions reflect his unique dedication to the welfare of his patient. In a world of bureaucratic medicine, he stresses both high tech and high touch. I have worked professionally with physicians for decades and rank Dr. Chu high among those who is a care provider who truly "cares."
