Dr. Chua is a patient and thorough doctor. I have seen her several times for a GI issue, and she has helped me think through the best steps to figure out the underlying cause and takes her time to answer myquestions and explain the pros and cons of my options.

Dr Chua is nice and professional but the office administration people are not so attentive. Not only they forgot to give my insurance card and ID, they told me to call insurance company to find out if they pay for theprocedures. Most of my other places I go to they normally check for me and inform me.

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.
