Dr. Chu is fantastic! First the practice was fully integrated with ZocDoc, which was amazing, because not only did they confirm my appointment in advance (instead of shuffling around confused like some places), but they also allowed me to fillout my paperwork in advance. It was nice to be able to simply sign a few waivers and agreements, and not have to fill out that massive paperwork by hand. Secondly, Dr. Chu is amazing, she (and her staff) listened in detail to what I was experiencing. They didn't jump to any conclusions until I was fully done explaining myself, and gave me a fully explanation of what was going on with my body. The only downside is I can only visit Dr. Chu for urology related issues, I wish she could be my regular physician.

Have you ever had to fight a doctor or their office staff to get the medication prescribed? Have you ever called, left messages, received no reply and been left stranded at the urinal due to "friends and family first?" Then this is the 'doctor's office' for you. Otherwise run.

Staff keeps hanging up the phone. Takes a loooong time to get a return call for results, and you will need to call several times and get the phone hang up several times too. Doctor does not listen well and seemsto be in a world of her own. I do not know who these other reviewers have been seeing with all the good comments. Sorry, I do not recommend this doctor.

This was my first visit to Dr. Chu, and I was very much impressed with her and her staff. The receptionist was pleasant and friendly. She greeted me and immediately began the check in process. I saw Dr. Chu ina matter of a few minutes. She was pleasant and complete, and seemed quite knowledgeable. She helped me feel comfortable, even though the subject for which I was there was somewhat embarrassing to me. I would highly recommend Dr. Chu for her professionalism and courteous care.

Dr. Chu was friendly, informative, and really made me feel better about what I was experiencing. She took the time to listen to all of my concerns, and even explained her decisions when she prescribed treatment. Her personality was upbeat andbright, and she even joked around with me. I didn't even sit down in the waiting room. I showed up one hour early and was immediately attended to. I look forward to going back in for a follow up.

Really liked this Dr. Loved that she accepts Tricare insurance for veterans. She listened intently, asked questions and really thought about treatment before recommending. Have already recommended her to someone else looking for a urologist.

I was in so much pain and didn't have the tolerance to wait for 1 hour in the waiting area and another 15 to 20 minutes in the exam room! Then, the doctor probably spent about 3 minutes -- 5 tops.I felt very rushed. Needless to say, it was not a great first time visit and will never come back.

Dr. Chu was excellent! I felt like I was talking to a friend, that is how comfortable she made me feel. Even though I am sort of a jokester, she was very much a jokester too. It was really refreshing tofind a doctor who actually listens to EVERYTHING you are saying, even ideas you may have in your head, and not shut you down immediately. I love that she actually listens and immediately had solutions to my concerns. I like that she even made other suggestions that would help with preventative maintenance regarding what I was seen for, for the future. She is really a great doctor and I highly recommend her to anyone but especially women. I know as a woman, talking about certain things can be discomforting but Dr. Chu was very calm and understanding. She will make you feel secure and comfortable!

After being Neglected and mismanaged by 4 doctors I was delighted with this young professional! She said she would fax orders right then and there for the necessary labs and MRI and By the time I arrived at the hospital theywere ready for me! Dr. Chu further endeared herself to me by telephoning me personally with the results...a personable professional lady indeed! I will return
