Dr Chu was excellent, I came in because my ear had been clogged for 2 weeks after taking a flight with a mild cold. He took a look at it, explained to me what was happening and how I could helpit clear up quicker. I really appreciated that he didn't prescribe something unnecessary or put me through any additional tests. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Chu.

My visit to Dr. Chu made me realize that there are still GOOD and RESPECTFUL doctors are out there... most doctors nowadays have become salesmen for the pharmas and treat you like just another money bag. I will come back to Dr. Chu for the rest of my life.

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.
