Dr Chu is an exceptional Dr! I drive from Mt. Pleasant, PA to seek his advice for two separate injuries, My first injury had completely healed pain free, which I am thankful to him. The new injury is under the diagnosis stages, I hope to have complete success under his care.

Very good and informative visit.

June 29, 2015

He seems very knowledgeable about the medical problems I've been having. He offered different treatment alternatives that I've been searching for in over 20 years--not just therapy or surgery. His office was easy to find. Only bad thing was it took so long to schedule an appointment to meet just with him. He does offer appointments with his PA's, etc. on a more timely basis.
