I met Dr. Chu when she was a Fellow at U of Penn Hospital working with Dr. Mark Morgan were a team who cared for my mother Louise E. Burbage, who later succumb to Leiyomyosarcoma. Then a few years later Dr. Chu was the surgeon who performed my myomectomy to remove 106 fibroid tumors. She was AmaZing! Her care and compassion for my Son and I was something I will never forget. She handled me with kidd gloves. I was a nervous wreck with 50 million questions...and she answered them all. Well the tumors are back and I' m going back to Dr Chu for her consult, care and compassion.
Dr. Chu immediately put me at ease. I truly feel she treats the patient, not just the disease. Her knowledge and expertise were apparent from the start. She took the time to thoroughly explain all of my options and is very accessible. My fear and anxiety have now been replaced with optimism and confidence thanks to Dr. Chu.
