I was very happy with my first time visit. Dr. Chu was very personable. I decided to keep her as my GYN before I left her office. I left my other one because the visits seemed cold and impersonal. I always felt that my concerns were never heard or that they mattered. With only one visit with Dr. Chu my confidence in my doctor is renewed. I feel like I'm being taken care of and that what I feel and what worries me is of concern to this new doctor. Thank you Dr. Chu for making me feel how every patient should feel when they visit their doctor! RHM

My PCP referred me to Dr. Chu after my previous gyn retired. Contrary to some other reviews I'd read, I found Dr. Chu to be quite personable, professional and kind. I didn't feel rushed and appreciated her thoughtful input. This was my first session but so far, I'm happy to be working with her.

Dr. Chu seems to be very educated and I'm sure is excellent doctor. However, I felt she was rushing through my visit, which was in the afternoon. She seemed very busy and like she wanted this appointment to be over quickly.. which made me feel pretty uncomfortable as I was there because I was very concerned about my health. I could also hear her speaking to another patient in the next room, which isn't great for privacy. It may just be the time of day that I chose, but I do not want to return to this office. I expect more attention and proper time to ask questions of my gynecologist.

I love Dr. Chu and her nurses/PAs. However, her administrative staff is really lacking. I've just come from her office where I went for an appointment I made 3 months ago. Turns out, the doc is on vacation. No one called to let me know or reschedule. And I wasn't the only patient this happened to so I know I didn't screw it up. Her next available appointment isn't for over another month. I was there, essentially, for a prescription refill that I'm almost out of. When I called back to ask about this, I had to call three times, one call immediately following the next, before anyone would answer the phone. They just disconnected me the first two times. And the response I got is that I'm going to have to go to a clinic to get the refill and that I will have to be seen by a doctor there. So, in addition to wasting my time today, they want me to find the time for an additional doctor's appointment simply to get a prescription refill and then still come back and see Dr. Chu in a month. That's not acceptable. Dr. Chu, if you're reading this, please, please address these issues with your administrative staff. It takes away from what a great doctor you are.

I waited for around 50 minutes to be seen by the doctor. I was told by the nurse that there was a backup of patients. I spoke with another patient in the waiting room whose appointment was 15 minutes ahead of mine. The doctor was overbooked but it's unclear if it was because of the previous day's snow storm or if it's a regular occurrence. The doctor spoke a mile a minute when she went through my medical history and rushed through my check up, finishing in 5-10 minutes. Aside from asking the obligatory questions, she did not do much to make me feel comfortable before the exam. I will not return.

Was not good. I've never had such a rough pelvic exam in my life! And the worst thing is that I told her I was having some pain, yet she still showed no regard for my comfort. She also did not address some of my major reasons for coming to see her. Would not recommend at all.

It took close to an hour to even be taken into a room. Once taken into the room, I waited for about another half hour, at this point I had been waiting for about an hour and a half. Dr. Chu was very pleasant and I appreciated that. However, I had a few more questions when a nurse practitioner came in and interrupted my appointment because of a need of another patient. I had just waited an hour and a half to be seen and still wasn't getting proper attention!! She asked if I wanted additional tests as she was walking out the door, I didn't want to say yes and then have them be rushed! That was unacceptable. I might still be returning to Dr. Chu, but the overall experience was not ideal.

I recently saw Dr. Chu and she was fantastic. Very quick - in and out - and made you feel so comfortable. As one that is slightly (okay fully) terrified of going to the gynecologist, she made the experience completely bearable and I am definitely seeing her again next time. Highly recommended!
