I was super nervous about my appointment as I had never been to a gastroenterologist however Dr Chua and her staff made me feel right at home. The office itself is nice and clean (it says 5th ave but the entranceis on 44th street in case you pass it). Dr. Chua listened to all my concerns, I never felt rushed at any point. She explained everything she was doing and thoroughly explained my diagnosis to me so I could understand it. She answered all my questions as well. Would definitely recommend if you are looking for a gastroenterologist.

Dr. Chua was exactly whoI wish I saw in the first place. After a bad experience with another GI doc, Dr. Chua was warm, thorough, kind and detailed in explaining things to me. She examined me and talked me through whatshe was thinking, as well as next steps. My visit with her put me at ease that I was in good hands. The office is clean and very efficient, they took me early! I left feeling relieved that I found her through zocdoc reviews.

Dr. Chua was very knowledgeable and helpful. She was the first doctor I went to see that didn’t just throw medication at me and told me it would fix my issues; she went through various diagnoses and possible treatments/testing with me,as well as doing some testing of her own. Overall, she is very thorough, thoughtful, and kind! I wouldn’t want to go to another gastro after visiting her.

Great Doctor! Very calm and confident. Listens and responds. Doesn’t rush trough. Doesn’t have any attitude. I really loved her. She gave me positive thinking. Scheduled me for an endoscopy. And the most important she doesn’t rush to performall useless procedures. She cares about a patient. I RECOMMEND HER TO EVERYONE!! I was looking for a female doctor for a while !!!!

I assumed all the Zocdoc reviews re: Dr. Chua were inflated by friends and family (because I've been misled by so many reviews in the past!), but she really is THAT AWESOME! I felt so comfortable with her right away andshe really made me feel like I was in good hands. She genuinely listens and processed all the information I gave her, offering thoughtful responses and follow-up questions rather than making me feel like she was on auto-pilot with cookie-cutter responses (so many doctors I've seen in the past make me feel like they aren't even really listening to what I'm saying and they seem to be giving me generic advice). Even though I haven't had my procedures yet, I'm now so much more relaxed about all that's going on and feel like my pain/issues will finally be solved with Dr. Chua!

Although the reason behind my stomach pain was not due to gastrointestinal issuers, Dr. Chua was able to help me figure out what was happening. I didn’t feel rushed and she listened to everything I said and was very emphatic andyou can tell she genuinely cared about my wellbeing although it was not something she could treat. I highly recommend her!!
