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.

I like her on my previous visits but my last visit she seems distracted and on the rush. I even had to ask her about a prescription while she's on her way out.

I usually hate going to the GYN. This visit was quick painless and she made me laugh so my anxiety disappeared quickly. The staff were very friendly as well.

Waited an hour for my app and everyone around me was also waiting for ridiculous times. The doctor is good, and I've been coming for my annual exam for about three years now but it's just terrible that the wait times are so bad every time.

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.

Dr. Chu has great bedside manner and makes the right amount of small talk to make me feel extremely comfortable and relaxed during my appointments. I've been going to Dr. Chu for my annual appointment for 3 years and would definitely recommend her!

The office visit was less than 15 min, she seemed she was rushing somewhere, she just asked the general questions and dodnt take the time to explain me much about the exam. She just said she will mail me the results.

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.

I've been going to Dr. Chu for several years, she's efficient and answers any questions/concerns diligently, my only problem is the wait time can be a little excessive, book your appointment as early as possible.

STARTED OFF NICE TURNED NOT SO NICE: My first visit to Dr.Chu was really wonderful - she was very kind and understanding. I did wait forever to see her, but her bedside manner made up for it. My second visit to Dr.Chu was okay, I waited about 40min and then when she saw me she was also training a nurse, so she wasn't as present. I shrugged it off because she was training and the last time she was so great. My last visit left me feeling really upset, uncomfortable and unsatisfactory. She hadn't communicated with the nurse about why I came in for my visit and went straight to business as a regular check up - not asking me how I was doing or why I was there... she just wanted to be in and out. As she is quickly wrapping up - I get the chance to speak up and she responds stunned with annoyance "Well when were you going to tell me?" and proceeded to be condescending as I spoke to her about the issues I had been having recently. The type of health issues you speak with an OBGYN are a little uncomfortable to begin with and should not be handled with a condescending RUDE attitude. She made me feel GUILTY for saying anything or even trying to show her what I was addressing. She was really trying to get out of there as soon as possible and was rushing me! I just couldn't even handle the level of discomfort that was creating. She said she would return with information about today's visit as she rushed out. So I'm waiting..waiting.. a nurse comes in and asks me if I'm waiting on something. I walk out of the room since apparently I wasn't supposed to be there and I can clearly see the nurse talking to disgruntled Dr.Chu in an office nearby. I could excuse it by saying maybe she was having a bad day, we all have bad days - but before she came in to the room, she was talking to the nurses outside about traveling. Disappointed about this last visit. I really held her in good light but it looks like I will be looking for a new OBGYN that isn't condescending.

The office staff mostly seemed relaxed and friendly, with the exception of one receptionist. Dr. Chu initially seemed a little rushed and brusque, but then when we started to talk about my diagnosis she slowed down and paid attention to my questions and I didn't feel rushed anymore. And unlike someone else's review here, she wasn't unpleasant to me about how long I had gone without GYN care.

First of all; they apparently overbooked patients and i waited for 2 hrs. None of the staff saw it necessary to explain to me why i had to wait and they couldn't tell me how long they anticipated the wait. I guess they didn't want to take responsibility for overbooking. I felt rushed, even when i was asking the questions and trying to explain the changes i was noticing she dismissed me.
