"Dr. Chu is an amazing doctor. I had lipo 5 months ago and it was not healing well and my doctor tried everything but nothing worked. Honestly I had lost all hope and was cursing myself for doing lipo. With little hope i thought let me try a dermatologist this is how I met Dr.Chu. Today after 2 weeks i can say im all better and I owe it all to Dr.Chu. I strongly recommend him he is very attentive warm kind and so much more he will not disappoint." - Sanna Abbas
