I was a new patient to Dr. Chu and found her very nice and well versed in my past medical history which i had forwarded from my previous doctor in Kansas City, Missouri. She got me set up with the referrals i needed. I really liked her and was impressed how detailed she was.

We recently had to change doctors and Dr. Chu made the transition very easy.

Everyone at Advocate Medical Group is pleasant.

good experience

June 5, 2020 12:00 AM

This appointment was a simple phone call to see how a new prescription was working. I was pleasantly surprised that Dr. Chu had such detailed notes on everything we had covered during my previous visit. It was a positive experience.

May 19, 2020 9:33 PM

Dr Chu was amazing! We had an evisit and to be honest I was so happy with it! I can't wait to meet her in office but she really made me feel comfortable about being on zoom and talking. She was thoughtful, through and asked all the right questions. She seemed to genuinely care about my health and feelings. I had been looking for a new primary and I have found her!

May 18, 2020 9:37 PM

My experience with Dr. Chu was very pleasant. I appreciate that she always listens to me, and is very helpful. She's a great listener, and helps me understand my options.

May 18, 2020 9:37 PM

Im very happy with her as my doctor. She helps me understand things and it puts my mind at ease.

Due to COVID19 my visit was a "phone visit". Dr. Chu listened to me and asked me a lot of questions about the abdominal pain I was experiencing. I was very satisfied with her "diagnosis" and being able to rule out any serious condition.

March 30, 2020 1:47 PM

This was a tele-visit appointment due to COVID-19. For being over the phone, I thought it went very well. Dr. Chu was respectful of my time and questions. The only thing I thought was weird was that they didn't ask for my birth date when calling. They always do that!

March 29, 2020 3:33 PM

it was a very good and informative vist.

March 13, 2020 8:24 AM

The provider was very understanding, patient, and caring. She listened to everything I said and asked for my moms opinion.

March 13, 2020 8:24 AM

Everything was good. The time that I waited and in there. Her personality and helpfulness.

March 13, 2020 12:00 AM

Initial first meet; very pleasant seemed interested and willing to give me whatever referrals I needed. Refilled prescriptions.

March 3, 2020 7:47 AM

Dr Chu and her staff were friendly and welcoming. This was my first appointment with her and she was so easy to talk to. She took the time to listen and offered advice with every question I had.

March 3, 2020 7:47 AM

The clerical staff and medical support staff were excellent. Check in was a breeze and I had a very small wait time.

March 2, 2020 6:18 AM

Dr. Chu was very helpful. I usually see Dr. X but she wasn't available.

February 25, 2020 9:38 AM

Dr chu was very friendly and took the time to answer all my questions
