Dr. Michelle Chu, MD

Family Physician, Primary Care Doctor

Professional statement

***Please note that pap smears and physicals take longer and cannot be accommodated for same day visit, and adult physicals must be scheduled in the morning. Help us expedite check in process by filling out forms before your visit. We are closed on Wednesdays, so appointments booked on those days will not be reviewed until Thursday morning.*** “I believe that it is a privilege for a patient to allow a physician to take care of him/her. I welcome open communication, patient’s understanding of their condition, and then participation in decisions for their care. To me, a partnership between doctor and patients is essential for good care. To be comprehensive, a doctor needs to consider patient’s emotional, psychosocial as well as physical health. For the young people, besides being their doctor, I would like to help them realize their potential, close the generation gap, and be proud of who they are culturally. I also strongly believe in preventive care. It is better to prevent illness from happening and to treat them.” Dr. Michelle T. Chu has completed a full 3-year residency in Family Practice and is Board Certified in the specialty. She has practiced medicine in Northern Virginia for over 21 years. Family Practice is the medical discipline specializing in you. We treat the patient as a whole person, and the family as a unit. There is an equally strong emphasis on promoting wellness as well as treating illness.

This doctor won't provide pain medicine/sleep aids on the first visit and will never prescribe or refill birth control for religious reasons. She is nice enough, but I probably won't go back.

Dr. Chu is extremely warm and kind. This is my first visit with her for an annual check-up. The appointment was longer than expected (nearly 1.5 hrs), maybe a combination of Dr. Chu being thorough and also this being my first appointment with her. Overall, would definitely recommend Dr. Chu!

I started going to Dr. Chu last year in November and am so glad I've found her! She's patient, friendly, extremely thorough, a great listener, and has always gone above and beyond to help me as much as she can andrefer me to great specialists. So happy to have her as my GP!

Dr. Chu was very friendly and helpful. The only slight inconvenience was her policy of not prescribing birth control (religious reasons), but her assistant alerted me of this before my visit. She was holistic in her general check-up and didn'tmake me feel like I was rushed out, as some other doctors do. Definitely recommend!

The office is a little old and could use an update. The location is a little odd and hard to get to because it sits right on Rt 7. The wait time was less than 20 minutes but I can seeshe was running behind. She really wants to get to know you. Be prepared to spend an hour to so initially. Dr. Chu is friendly and wants to know about you. She was helpful and listened carefully. She has a great bedside manner and made me feel really comfortable. Would highly recommend her!

I felt that the office itself appeared a little dilapidated and old, and when I got there no one really told me what to do. However, Dr. Chu is very friendly and very good with how she treats you while examining you!

Dr. Chu is FANTASTIC! My appointment was at 9am and I was called to the back at 9:01am. Dr. Chu and I talked for 45mins before the actual physical exam started. She was extremely attentive and her staff was amazing! Highly recommended!

She was very kind and approachable. She did not rush our appointment and felt like she really cared about my health. She listened to my specifics and I got the medicine I needed! An important note was that she doesn't prescribebirth control pills, sleep medication, nor pain medication, which I didn't realize when I booked the appointment.
