Wow! My first time visiting Dr Chu and I was totally blown away by how personable and patient a doctor can be!! I also like that he runs things efficiently and doesn’t have staff doing all the work for him. There’sa good reason my Primary Care Physician recommended him. If I need further ENT care, I know who I’ll be seeing.

The doctor was very nice. However he barely spent 10 minutes with me and charged me three times as much as my Internal Medicine physician For what? All he did was have me open wide, say ahhhh. He looked in myears & up my nose. Told me my headaches, etc. were being caused by Stress not Sinus. ??? My other 2 doctors (internal medicine & general practitioner) both told me everything was sinus related. He simply told me to drink hot honey with lemon, use over the counter nose spray, over the counter allergy tablets and over the counter lozenges. I feel so cheated out of my money. This should've have cost more than half of what he charged me for a cash pay client.

Dr. Chu is a very knowledgeable ENT who can easily make a correct diagnosis of the many things that can go wrong with your ears, nose or throat. He tries hard to limit your costs and will not recommend surgery unlessit is the only thing you can do. Highly recommended.

Dr. Chu is amazing! I usually do my research before going to a doctor and after reading his reviews I decided to visit him. Both, my son and I were quite happy by the end of the appointment. He listened toour concerns, and address every single one of them. He is very knowledgeable and he was great with my son who was a little nervous. We, my son and now myself will continue to see Dr. Chu as our ENT doctor. Highly recommended!

Did not seem to care much for the specifics of my situation. Has a very "know it all" attitude about all things in life, and sinus related. I have a very specific situation that has been building for 5 years andI thoroughly explained it to him as best I could inbetween his interruptions. At the end of the appointment he basically sent me on my way with no real insights and a recommendation to start using a nasal rinse product that I told him I have already tried for long periods of time that did not help. Very disappointed in this waste of time visit.

Had a really wonderful experience with Dr. Chu! I felt like he genuinely cared about what I was telling him. He immediately made me feel very comfortable and went above and beyond to figure out both what was wrong and toexplain the procedures and his thought processes. I also want to give a quick shout-out to the two women working the front desk. They were very helpful and nice. I would definitely recommend him and will be going back for any additional issues I have.
