patient TESTIMONIALS ★★★★★

I've been a patient here at Spine & Rehab Group for 3 years now and have nothing but good things to say. An absolutely wonderful staff including my PA, Melanie Fillian who is extremely knowledgeable and caring and has great bedside manners. I have a total of 5 disc herniations, spinal stenosis and degenerative disc disease from years in construction and their aggressive regimen of procedures and the right meds have helped me tremendously. I refer friends there as well with great results! Easy to reach and make appointments, great understanding and caring staff and convenient location. I highly recommend this practice for anyone who suffers from chronic pain and or sports injuries.

I've been seeing Dr. Chu for a number of years for help with managing joint pain and recurrent sports injuries. He has always been attentive, cautious, and thorough during all of my visits. He was careful in his assessment, asking X-rays, an MRI, and occasionally even a blood test before starting any therapies or injections. Surgery has been considered, but Dr. Chu has never pushed surgery—only suggested it as an option. Instead, we've focused on non-surgical pain management techniques that better fit my needs for work and sports.
