Ratings for Dr. Ansel L. Chu
I had been warned by a friend before going to Dr. Chu that his bedside manner is lacking but that he is thorough, he really listens, and he gets the job done. My experience showed that comment to be spot on. I can see how people could be offended: he asked almost the same question over and over, he gave very few visual clues that he was actually engaged in the discussion, and there were frequent extended pauses in the conversation. What I noticed, however, is that "same question" was in fact him probing at an issue from multiple angles to get a full picture of the problem. The aspect of receiving no visual clues and pauses were him busy processing information, like he was in his head searching through a data bank and didn't have time for essentially idle chatter. There was no disrespect from him, no rudeness. He was a highly focused man on a mission, and he was the first doc in MANY years to give me relief for my chronic pain. Don't go to Dr. Chu to be coddled. Go to him for results.
These positive comments have to have been written by the doctor. This doctor is not nice at all. He is beyond "bedside manners not being his strong suit", he is straight up abusive. Treated my injury like it was some kind of joke. Completely insulted by the lack of care he gave to my well being, when I tried to trust him to help me to feel better. Never again will I be humiliated and insulted by a doctor like this, I will just walk out it's just complete waste of time. Wont be going back that's for sure there is something defiantly wrong with him.
I love Dr.Chu. He is straightforward, knowledgeable, and helpful about such a complex disease. I can not find any other Dr to talk to or treat my chronic pain/fibromyalgia and he does. He listens and and asks questions and offers suggestions. If it didn't help last visit we try something different. And if it is helping we keep doing what works. I've been seeing him every six weeks for a couple years now and look forward to seeing him and his friendly staff every time!!
Bedside manners are definitely not his strong suit. He is very direct and to the point with his questions and with your answers you provide. Even though I felt like I was wasting my time for him, he examined me from head to toe and actually found a problem I wasn't even aware about. He even went out of his way to phone another specialist to expedite my need to see a neurosurgeon. Don't go there for a friendly banter, go there to get results.
Wasting MSP Funds on this Dr. was too scared to be examined by him, he was so negative thought might hurt me. Complained to my G.P not to refer any patient's to him. Made me feel more depressed and sick afterwards, hopeless man. Wrote lies about my pain, terrible person. Made me cry in his clinic, horrible man. Never came across anyone like him before.
Wasting MSP Funds, totally waste of time, won't listen to you at all, writes lies about pain. Haven't come across a Dr. like him before. Felt more sick after seeing him. Will never see this man again. I complained about him to my G.P not to refer patient's to him. Made me cry, was so scared to be examined by him, thought might hurt me. Very depressing to come across Dr. like him. Very poor with his work, not professional at all.
He is an idiot, I saw him too regarding my soft tissue injury, he wrote all the lies he could. He is not clear what he wants to know. I was so scared when he started to examine me. He should not deal with patients at all. Made me feel more depressed. Not going back to him.
Very unprofessional Dr. , do not waste time visiting this Dr. More concerned about other things than pain. Does not listen to you at all, unnecessary questions that is not related to pain. Putting other physician down by saying not knowing what they are doing. Very difficult Dr. to talk to.
Dr. Chu accused me of "shading" my answers when in fact I could not hear the questions properly due to my severe tinitus. I told him many times throughout the session I could not hear him yet he continued to talk softly and I continued to answer incorrectly. He caused me severe pain while examining my back and set me back many weeks in my recovery. If I caused that amount of pain to another person I would be in jail. This arrogant man lost my trust and respect after the first two minutes in his office. I have never been treated like this before and will not be subjected to this kind of abuse again. I would never recommend him to anyone. I am writing this 17 hours after my appointment and the pain has not subsided enough so I can sleep even after taking t3s. A cruel person indeed.
