Very good and informative visit.

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.

My comments are all above and beyond good. Thank you for asking. Dr. Chu is very insightful. There is more to an injury than just the injury... mental, emotional plays a bigger part than I realized until I met Dr. Chu. I questioned... a few things, he answered everything to the smallest of detail. It is nice to breath a sigh of relief. I had been to another Dr. a few years ago and my experience was not good. You might want to share this... Dr. Chu has a great sense of humor!!! He laughs and he understood my frustrations with my injury. At some point if you don't laugh you will cry. I chose to laugh and he got it!!! He laughed with me and that really lifted my spirits and he made me feel real and valid. He is human and on the same level, I had the feeling Dr. Chu keep in mind, by The Grace of GOD, there go I. I have already recommended Dr. Chu to people I care about. His staff are also very welcoming. Am I anxious about my appnt. in 2 months? I'm glad you asked. No. I look forward to hear what he has to say about my progress because there will be some. Amen.
