Commitment to Patient-Centered Care

"I am passionate about providing personalized care that is value-added and delivered in partnership with my patients and their families. I use my expertise and knowledge about the latest and most appropriate technology to tailor my recommendations to each patient's unique needs. I offer information, counseling, and guidance to my patients as they make their own decisions about their health care. Finally, I choose to practice at HCMC because of its mission and its commitment to deliver the best care available."

Dr. Chu has broad and diverse clinical interests, with a specific focus on chronic venous insufficiency (varicose veins), venous thromboembolic disease (blood clots), interventional oncology, and critical limb ischemia and salvage. Much of his practice involves disease management through endovascular intervention and noninvasive imaging diagnosis.
