“Dr. Chu saw my 12yr old daughter for a recurring foot issue that no one could give us answers about. He was so kind and talked directly to my daughter asking her the questions first and then asking me if I had anything to add. It was such a nice experience for her to be treated with this kind of respect. Dr Chu was very knowledgeable and explained things to us with ease. I am so happy we went to see him. Highly recommend.”
