My only concern was that I was unaware of a more easily accessible parking area for reaching the second floor offices. Once I made it to the office, the staff was professional, the equipment was more up-to-date than I was used to seeing, and the doctor was personable and explained my options clearly and with a very supportive tone. There are doctors you feel lucky to have found when you needed them most. Dr. Chu may well be that specialist for this patient.

The doctor was great and very patient with my questions. I did have to wait for almost an hour in order to be seen. Not sure if it was because this was my first visit with them, so the front desk asked me to fill out a bunch of questions. But overall I appreciated Dr. Chu's treatment and expertise.

Dr. Chu is very patient to listen to the eye issues I’ve experienced this past week. He took time to explain the cause and answered all my concerns. He assured me nothing was serious and reminded me to take eye drops because I have dry eyes.

Dr. Chu has state of the art equipment and a knowledgeable staff to assist him. I have been a patient of his for several years and he always thoroughly reviews the health of my eyes in connection with my overall medical history and current concerns. He was also my (now deceased) mom's eye dr and uses her history to assist in addressing possible future concerns for me. He has my highest recommendation.

Very efficient and courteous staff. Was seen on time with no delay between staff examinations /tests and Dr Chu coming into see me. Dr Chu was very knowledgable and experienced, listened to all my concerns, and addressed each one. I felt very good about the visit. Furthermore, and a big plus for me, the office was versed in billing medical insurance for appts, not just vision coverage which I do not have.

Very nice office and everyone was very helpful. The only downside was that I was left waiting for 20 minutes for someone to take measurements of my new contacts and ensure they fit correctly in my eyes. All in all, the wait times, both before and during the appointment, could have been better, but everyone was extremely knowledgeable and I definitely be going back in a year.

I thought that the very busy office was handled so well and efficiently by the staff and the doctor. I didn't feel like the doctor was in a rush to answer any questions and the people that he has there helping him like Daniel are really very very nice and informative and competent. I will definitely have Dr. Chu as my main eye doctor, he's really good.
