4.7 out of 5 (142 Ratings, 25 Comments)4.7142

Why do some of our providers not have a star rating? This can be for several reasons, including:

  1. The provider has not yet received the minimum number of patient satisfaction surveys to be eligible for display.
  2. The provider practices in a specialty or office that does not use the specified surveys currently used for these ratings.

We love Dr. Chu. She always gets it right even when we've had bad diagnoses from other providers, dr. Chu is so detailed it doesn't feel like she's "guessing". She is sensitive and smart. Great with kids and parents alike.

While Carle measures many aspects of our patients’ experience, only the survey questions specific to each provider are used to calculate their star rating. The surveys asks patients to evaluate their physicians in areas like communication, listening skills and respect. Results are used to evaluate patients’ overall perception of care and to identify areas for improvement. For each provider, ratings from their patients are averaged together to form a single star rating.

We have been fortunate enough to have Dr. Christine Chu as our pediatrician for the first year of our son's life. Dr. Chu has been phenomenal. She is understanding and obviously caring for all her patients. She listened very closely and intensely to parent's concerns and is very good at explaining complex Medical Systems to her patients. She always make time for her patients and goes out of her way to extend the office visit as needed. I don't think that the facility appreciates her thoroughness and we just been very lucky to have her as our pediatrician for like I said the first year of our firstborns life. We wouldn't change the decision to have her as our pediatrician for anything and we feel so lucky and fortunate that she was our primary care provider.

Dr. Chu did a fantastic job getting information about our child. He was adopted so this was his first appointment with her. She made just to get all of the information from us that she needed to help her with his care.

08/01/2019

I appreciate the time and care provided by Dr. Chu. She, sometimes just happens to know your questions before you even ask them. I'm very pleased. Thank you.

07/12/2019

Dr. Chu is friendly, informative, and professional. She works hard to make sure our daughter is comfortable with the exam and to explain everything so we know how to care for her after the appointment.

Dr Chu is an exceptional provider! She has excellent bedside manner and always makes my children feel at ease. She is also very attentive to the parents and makes sure that all my questions are answered. I never feel rushed and feel like we walk away with our needs fully met. I highly recommend Dr Chu when anyone I know is looking for a pediatric provider!

06/06/2019

Dr. Chu was excellent as always. I appreciate her being careful of how sensitive subjects are discussed in front of younger kids. She also made it a point to ask about any concerns of my child after I updated her on family mental health history. Dr. Chu shows her care and concern and I love her demeanor with my kids!

05/31/2019

We are pleased with Dr. Chu's thoroughness. She provides good examples that are easy to comprehend and seems to truly take interest in our children.

Dr. Chu was amazing when we had complications to the illness and I needed to call in and speak with a nurse, I was able to get one quickly. We switched medications easily with no problems, and she talked me through all the possible side effects, and then when we had additional concerns, she gave us a call back later to make sure everything was going well. I would highly recommend Dr. Chu for anyone looking for a pediatrician in Champaign-Urbana.

I chose Dr. Chu as my children's new primary care physician because we had happily worked with Dr. [...] and then he retired and then we work with Dr. [...] and he retired and we had seen Dr. Chu work possibly and [...] on the day. Our Primary Care wasn't available and she was wonderful. And so I signed up my kids to transfer over to her and I asked them how it went after we had made a note visit and they said she was awesome and he likes her and two other two children who were present our excited to work with her in the future.

Dr. Chu was fantastic. She was attentive & I like how she spoke directly to my son but also listened to what I was saying. Very happy with her care & I feel confident in the treatment we received.

It's hard to replace the knowledge and bedside manner of Dr. [...]. However, my children feel comfortable with Dr. Chu and hopeful for continued great care.

02/26/2019

Dr. Chu is very competent and a thoughtful person.

02/12/2019

I see Dr. Chu for both of my children and she is one of the best pediatricians I've ever met. She's always very caring and thorough I also love all the staff here. They do an amazing job, and you're so great with my kids.

02/11/2019

I just want to say that Dr. Chu is amazing. I feel very confident, and I appreciate all that she does. She's very thorough and she does a great job with my newborn baby, and I feel very confident in her, and I appreciate everything that she says, and does. She is great. Thank you.

Dr. Chu remembers little details about my son that are always surprising half the appointments. I think she does a really good job at knowing her patients.
