Verified Patient Reviews
Very nice doctor and professional if I could give him more than 5 star i would.
My visit went great! Dr. Chu's Office and work space was very clean, the reception staff was very pleasant, and the area in which his office was located was very convenient, with parking right outside. As for Dr. Chu himself, he was amazing. Great bedside manner, and explained everything very thoroughly, in both medical and laymen terms. He was straightforward, and very clear in his explanations. Even though my symptoms weren't like the usual patient's, he still didn't rule out all the possibilities. I will definitely be returning.
Clean office, didn’t have to wait long before seeing the doctor. Doctor was very nice & determined to help.
Dr. Po Cheng Chu was so friendly, patient, welcoming, and helpful. What I really appreciated about him was that he would explain everything about what he was doing, step by step. Highly recommend and so happy to find the right doctor.
Dr. Chu was wonderful! Patient, compassionate, and thorough. Highly recommended!
Very kind doctor and knowledgeable
Staff was very nice. The doctor was informative.
So friendly, so professional. He really tries to understand your condition throughly
He was very kind and thorough..he made me feel really comfortable and he thoroughly explained everything to me! I am very happy.
I love Dr. Chu's empathy and big smile. He tries to understand and listens to your pain and condition and then he will diagnose and then explain to you the reasons why your have certain condition. He takes his time; he does not rush and give you five minutes like most of the specialist. However, you need to take time to heal. There is no immediate result. We must follow Dr. Chu's order and go back for follow up. It is very important you take care your tummy! Also, if you can't afford the drugs; you can let him know he has some samples in his office. He will try to accommodate you! Go for it!
Amazing doctor will be going back :)
Very attentive...excellent bedside manner. Very detailed does not rush the visit. Highly recommend.
I have been to a few gastro doctors and have found this doctor to be on point. Clean office although i wish he has air conditioner everything about the doctor was great.
Dr. Cheng was very informative and explained everything in detail. Unfortunately I was disappointed with the after care post colonoscopy. There were no vitals taken after the procedure was done. There was no aftercare. It was very scary getting woken up and asked to get off the bed into a chair 5 minutes after the procedure was done.
Great office and understanding doctor. Staff is nice as well!
Dr.Chu has an excellent way of explaining everything. He is soft spoken and seems to really care about your comfort.
Extremely kind, knowledgeable and empathetic. All the reviews are true! :) He explains everything in detail, tells you what he's going to do and why, and makes sure you understand what he's saying fully. He really listens and makes you feel heard. You have to find metered street parking (that hates my quarters apparently), so you might overpay in a quick appointment or have to feed the meter in the middle of your appointment (like I did). But he's patient and happy to help.
Dr. Chi was amazing. Very thorough. Explained everything to me in detailed and listened carefully to my concerns. He took my medical history into consideration as well as my symptoms and recommended a few procedure which I am on board with. He is very nice and has a calming way. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs to be seen.
He was very nice and he knows his stuff. He explained everything step by step. I feel like he understood the issues my son was having unlike other doctors we have gone to in the past. I feel we will get positive results from his suggestions.
He's very good and make me feel comfortable
Dr. Chu is extremely patient and compassionate. We worked out a game plan to tackle my IBD flare and I came out of the office feeling relived to be dealing with a really down to earth specialist. Highly recommend!
Very smart. Very knowledgeable. Highly recommend him. This doctor is great.
Great doctor with lots of passions.
I've never been to Dr. Chu before (or a gastroenterologist in general), and he was awesome. He explained everything to me in detail and made sure I understood before we moved on with the appointment. He's also a really nice and congenial person. I would highly recommend.
Great doctor, has a very good knowledge about what he does. Had an issue and he was able to help me start gaining control. Did an excellent endoscopy.
Dr. Po Cheng Chu, was very good. He fully explained everything and listened to all of my concerns. He made me feel extremely comfortable and I will definitely go back.
Although I already had high expectations for my visit with Dr. Chu, the experience surpassed my expectations! Dr. Chu was very easy to talk to, informative, genuine, and patient. I don't think I would have felt half as comfortable with any other provider, given the nature of the problem. His picture says a thousand words, and if that doesn't suffice, read all the positive reviews of previous patients.
I came in on a last minute appointment to deal with painful hemorrhoids. That is completely awkward and embarrassing. Knowing I'd need to be examined is certainly embarrassing. This doctor made me feel completely comfortable. He took his time, explained everything, went through procedure, named everything he was doing before he did it and then went into detail about what was going on. I love him to the fullest.
Dr. Chu was amazing. Knowing a bit about the area, I knew that parking would be an issue so I headed over early. If you get there 15/20 minutes early, it will not be an issue to get into the office on time. As for the front desk, the young lady was great and helped me right away. For Dr. Chu, he was awesome. I was nervous that I would not completely understand everything he said because most doctors speak fast or do not care to break down whats going on with your body into simpler terms for those who are not in the medical field but Dr. Chu definitely did. He answered all my questions (which were a lot) and helped me to understand what was going on. I had an appointment and endoscopy the next day so I was very pleased that he was able to fit me in right away. He is so professional and the procedure was just fine. it's great because everything is done right there in his office. Everything was done on time and there was no wait in the office either day. I'll definitely be coming back for more appointments if need be, I know I will not have to look for a different specialist in this field, and would definitely recommend his office to all.
Chu was very helpful and informing with explaining to me all the possibilities of what could be wrong with my digestion. He then scheduled a test to see if I have a problem.
Dr Chu was super awesome and very thorough didn't feel like i was being rushed, he is patient and listens. He is not quick to respond. You can tell he is taking everything in to get a clearer diagnosis and treatment plan, made me feel at ease. And after these few days, my stomach discomfort was all disappeared by taking his medicine. He is an extremely helpful GI, i would definitely recommend her
One of the best had a colonoscopy wasn't bad at all! Thanks
I was a little apprehensive about seeing Dr Chu as his office is located in an area I'm not familiar with but he is kind, caring, patient and very knowledgeable. I would recommend him to anyone.
Very friendly and professional
He took time to listen to me, did not rush me. He was very careful. Looking forward to see him again.
Fast, no wait, very clean office, very knowledgeable doctor
The Dr was amazing I am a health care provider my self and always had problems finding a doctor who actually cares as I care dearly for my patients this Dr did he payed attention to all detailed was caring and tried to help me to the best of his ability I highly recommend him as a provider it's hard to find provider who actually pay attention to what's going on he will do he's best for he's patients so if you have a gi problem look no forward

I love doctors who explain in understandable language what's happening to your body and how exactly treatment will help. Dr Po Cheng Chu is one of them and Iike him
