I really liked Doctor Chu. There were definitely a few issues with the people that work there. I heard a whole lecture from one of the women in the office to the other employees about being nicer to patients etc.i didn't think it was appropriate to have this 10 min conversation in front of patients. It should have been done in a meeting in a back room. I could tell Doctor Chu was frustrated when she asked for my pharmacy and her nurse did not previously ask what pharmacy I used. The nurse who escorted me into the room was nice, but she needs to learn to knock. Doctor Chu told her to come in after I was dressed and get my pharmacy information. I was only half dressed when she walked right in without knocking. And she proceeded to ask me my information. Other than that, I thought Doctor Chu was pretty good.

Kristine Chu is hands down the worst physician I have ever met. From the moment you walk into her office and have to deal with her rude staff, you immediately feel uncomfortable to even be there. As a doctor, she was extremely unknowledgeable. I have been here multiple times over the years and have finally learned my lesson. Every single time her computer system has somehow been broken and she is running in and out of the room. I wait a couple of hours each time I have an appointment here and only actually see her for a couple of minutes. If you must make an appointment here make sure to take the full day off from work since the wait time is truly unheard of.

Dr. Chu was incredibly RUDE and unprofessional. She greeted me and asked me where I had moved from and when my last gyno appointment was, and when I told her that I was from philadelphia she asked me if there were doctors in philadelphia. I replied "yes, of course there are doctors, my gyno was an MD and why wouldn't they have doctors there?". An incredibly dumb question, and very rude and uneducated from someone in the medical profession. How could she think there are ZERO doctors in philadelphia. She then asked me what my parents did and I told her that my father is also a doctor and she asked me if he made any money since NP's basically do all the primary care in Philly, which isn't true and yes my father makes a living. Very rude comment. THEN once it was time to do the pap smear I had to take off my underwear because I had forgotten to take it off, and she RUDELY remarked "haven't you ever been to a gyno before? why didn't you take those off already?" I was SHOCKED and appalled at her rudeness and her unprofessional behavior and although this was my first visit to her office it will most certainly be my last. DO NOT GO TO HER.

I was seen by Dr. Chu almost right away. She was very polite, kind, and genuinely concerned about my health. She asked about my personal and sexual aspects of my life and how those stressors are affecting my overall health. I also asked her about switching methods of birth control, she was very frank and upfront about the information, and was able to break it down in simple terms that is easily understood. I feel confident with the information given to go forward in my decision to switch. I enjoy my annual visits to Dr. Chu and I know that I can rely on her for the best care.

Dr. Chu was quite condescending and merely dismissed everything I told her. Even suggested that I didn't have the disorder that I have been diagnosed with by many physicians (despite doing no tests whatsoever). Also did not answer any questions I came in with. (Merely did quick exam.) Wish I could get my money back! For more accurate reviews, search her on Yelp.

We had a nice chat, a pap smear, but she forgot to give me a breast exam, and I forgot to remind her. It was my first visit and we went over my history and she knew my former physicians.

I agree that Dr. Chu is probably a very knowledgable doctor and one who knows her stuff; however, I feel she can be very impersonal... She barely made eye contact with me, rushed through our conversation, and left without really putting closure to my questions. I was not so happy with this appointment because I don't think she was as caring as I would have liked to the patients (like myself). Other than that, wait time was quick-- thank God, and she seemed very knowledgable.

I saw Dr. Chu today for the first time, and she was wonderful: friendly and personable and polite and knowledgeable. I highly recommend her! I've seen some people comment on the wait time before being seen, but that could be true of any doctor--they can't control when emergencies arise. I saw Dr. Chu immediately, but even if not, she is worth the wait. :)
