I was very pleased with my sons visit. As he began having nose bleeds the previous day of the appointment. I got a same day appointment with the ENT Doctor. Usually it takes weeks even months to see this type ofspecialist. He was very thorough with explaining my sons issues and made sure both my son and I understood the severity of his nose bleeds and how to prevent them.

I liked dr Chiu very much! He couldn't help me with what I came in for because it wasn't his area but helped me understand a few other things that was going on with my ear nose throat area. He alsodirected me to an allergist and gave me advice on changing my allergy over the counter meds which I will do. He was funny and put me at ease and the girls in the front were very polite and helpful.

Amazing Doctor! Very compassionate and knowledgeable. Everything a Doctor should be. I had since been to 2 different ENTs none have helped me. I decided to give it one more shot and this doctor knew exactly what was wrong and Icould see how he enjoyed sharing his knowledge and passion for his work with me. Highly recommended.
