If I could give Dr. Chu 6 stars I would. 2 years ago I had a raspy voice and polyps onmy vocal cords, Dr. Chu made me like new again!! He has a great manner and answers your questions so you understand. Just left his office with Bad sinus issues. He is so thorough! Didn't know they did allergy testing in the office. The office staff and Dr. Assistants could not be any nicer,all very friendly and helpful.

Dr. Chu and his staff were amazing! Dr. Chu showed true concern for my issue, explained everything is an easy to understand manner and took additional time to explain the additional testing needed to be done so he was sure I understood. I felt that he went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable with the decisions being made. Highly recommend Dr. Chu!

Unfortunately the forms I completed on Zocdoc for my appointment this morning were not forwarded to the doctors office. I was told that there is a problem on Zocdoc's end. I had to fill out forms after I arrived at the office. That was the only issue I had with my visit.

Friendly staff. Very welcoming. Clean modern office. Dr. Chu was professional. Took the time to review my issue and at no time seemed rushed to leave for next patient. As good as an experience you can have in a medical office.

The visit to Dr. Chu was better than I had expected. I tend to get nervous going to doctors but everyone from the front desk staff, to Melissa Brady Dr Chu's assistant, and Dr Chu were so nice, made you feel comfortable, and were helpful. I would recommend this office to anyone who needs to see an ENT.

Doctor is attentive and knowledgeable. Assistant staff is pleasant. My only annoyance: they called me and asked if I could come earlier (come at 3:00 instead of 3:30 ). I left work earlier than originally planned yet wasn't seen until 3:45ish anyway.

Dr. Chu answered our questions and addressed our concerns, in a calm manner; I didn't feel rushed. He made my daughter feel at ease and comfortable to talk with him about her thoughts. The staff was pleasant as well. The wait was short. I filled out the patient forms prior to my visit via the website. My first impression was good.

As a new patient you have no problems scheduling, but indicate that you are an existing patient and all of a sudden no appointments are available for the next 3 months or only inconvenient appointments in the middle of the day that nobody else wants. Apparently this is not a Zocdoc issue but an office policy. If you schedule as a "new patient" (as I did, thinking it was a website glitch) they will call and move you to your "proper" spot. My last appointment was cancelled by Dr. Chu 2 days before it was scheduled, so I used Zocdoc to reschedule, I shouldn't wait 3 months for a follow up appointment when there are times available for new patients. Also, I had an 8 am appointment (first of the day), I didn't see the doctor until 8:40

I am currently having issues with my sinuses and the doctor was very informative and professional. The staff was very kind in answering my many questions. Location of the office is easy to find. Would definitely recommend people to go to Dr. Chu for ENT related issues. Thank you !
