While the wait ended up being 45 minutes after my appointment time, Dr. Chua ended up being a very smart and personable doctor. He took his time to listen to my symptoms, answered my questions, and provided his recommendations on next steps. I'd highly recommend him.

There was quite a line when I visited but that's because they had a tech issue earlier in the day. When Dr. Chua saw me, he immediately apologized for the delay. Some doctors don't even bother but you can tell he is very considerate of his patients time. As far as treatment, he listened wonderfully and in details. After a terrible experience with another gastroenterologist, I explained my concerns as well as undiagnosed symptoms. Rather than dismissing my concerns/thoughts like the other doctor, he took the time to explain the reasons behind his diagnosis. He made sure I left without feeling scared or stressed about the next steps. Highly highly recommend.

My hospital told me the earliest appointment with a GI specialist was 3 months. Frustrated, a late night Google search led me to the ZocDoc app, and to this particular office. I made my appointment on the app and was seen less than 2 days later (in the evening, after work). I walked in today and immediately went up to the front desk to check in; no lines, no wait. Within a few minutes, I was seen by a friendly nurse who took my vitals and with whom I exchanged pleasantries. Everyone I came across was very helpful, polite, and pleasant, which helped calm my frazzled nerves. Dr. Chua’s bedside manners are among the best I’ve ever seen. He was very friendly and knowledgable, and took his time/didn’t rush the consultation. He really listened and made what I expected to be an uncomfortable visit, a surprisingly easy and painless one. Also, very convenient location, right off I-55 (and they have their own parking lot so you don’t have to search for street parking)

This was my first time meeting Dr. Chua his was running behind by 1 hour but they managed to see me at my schedule appointment time. He listens to you as well as suggest what you need in order to solve the problem. I was scheduled to have a EDG the next day however I was told that since my deductible was not meet that I had to put half on the unmet deductible as down payment, apply for care credit. This options were not obtainable for me and this is how this practice group operates. My advice is that you must meet your deductible in order to see this doctor should you require any test beyond an office visit. This is very discouraging to see a physician and you can't continue to stay with them because the deductible has not been met. If I had the money I would definitely had continue my service with Dr. Chua but it was short lived. I think the practice needs to look a payment plan options of what patients can afford. I was given the option to put half of what they were asking for and the rest could be in installments. Because I knew I didn't have that either and the test was scheduled for the next day I have to seek out another provider.

Dr. Chua was really excellent. He took the time to listen to my symptoms and get a full history, and to explain what he thought the problems might be and what the next steps should be. He was very warm and present in my appt (not at all condescending or rushed), and he's also dedicated to finding the root causes of my problems! Lots of gastro issues can be complicated/confusing to diagnose, but he told me he really believes that there is always a cause and it's just a matter of looking at the right things and asking the right questions. I left feeling very positive about working with him!

Dr Chua seemed really nice and encouraging and prescribed me something which i was supposed to pick up at the front desk, on the way out. I felt hopeful and encouraged and that he really listened to me, well. I picked up the medicine, and was confused as the directions were different than what he had described. I went home and realized that they had given me something that was the OPPOSITE of what i was supposed to take. They would not speak to the doctor about it when i called, and would not let me walk across the street to CVS to obtain what he had prescribed. I ended up having to take the train back, and then wait, outside, while they had someone come from another office, to unlock the door and give me the correct meds (even though there was a receptionist, inside, the entire time i was waiting on the sidewalk). They wanted to have me come in for another procedure, that Dr. Chua had discussed with me, but i felt that since they messed that up so badly, i didn't trust them to further treat me. I am pretty sure that Dr. Chua, himself, never knew what had happened, but i don't want to pay for another visit, just to tell him that. I have never been billed, by the doctor, but recently was notified that i am to pay for the full office visit, by my insurance, even though it a complete waste of my time and actually had the potential to be harmful to my health.
