Dr. Chu was very friendly and, while the appointment (an annual) was quick, she was still thorough and took the time to educate me on various things and answered my questions with examples and facts. Got back to my job within my allotted lunch hour, too!

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 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!

My appointment with Kristine was great from start to finish. The staff at the office was pleasant, the nurse who took my vitals was super friendly and nice, and Kristine herself has a great bedside manner. Kristine explained everything that she was doing clearly, which is super important to me when at the gyno, since it's generally uncomfortable. She also clearly explained what she thought was going on and what other conditions that I was worried about would have been like, to alleviate any fears. She also explained things in a way that I could understand but not that were belittling as a patient. Definitely will be using her as my OB-GYN from now on!

The wait time today was abnormal compared to my visits in the past. Generally, I don't wait more than 15 minutes. Today it was closer to 35. I find Dr. Chu to be extremely personable, easy to talk to and never feel like she is pushing a specific treatment or prescription. She worries about what is best for you. I highly recommend her!

Dr rush into the exam and barely make an effort to do a fully exam unlike other gyno. Doesn't really have time to check and listen to your concerns. appointment is useless. Waited almost two hours. Policy said they won't take patient who is 15mins late but eventually they do and it messed up my appointment time. More like a first come first serve schedule. Front desk doesn't seem to care.
