Really like Dr. Chiu....he took time and answered all my questions!
It took forever to finally be seen, but he provided a level of care I would expect of somebody associated with Stanford.

I know more about my condition than ever. this visit has relieved much stress and given me the awareness and knowledge I need to stay healthy.
The two doctors I have seen, Doctors Chiu and Kang, and all of the staff at Cardiovascular Consultants have been friendly, courteous and more than willing to help me in any of my dealing with them.
Very good.
Dr. John Chiu is exceptional. One of the best doctors I have seen. And, I see several excellent ones. Dr.Chiu is a doctor whom I have total confidence.
Dr. Chu got very quickly to the important questions. He is very professional but in no way did we feel rushed - he offered us opportunities to ask questions. He spoke directly to my mother, which we both appreciate.
Dr. Chiu has a busy practice and that is reflected in his interactions with me. I have a lot of confidence in him, and am satisfied that he and his group would care for me well in a non-routine situation. On routine visits, he can be a little terse. I understand and am not offended, but he could improve in this area.
Care provider was very friendly and able to answer all my questions.
Is hard to get an appointment with Dr. Chiu at the Castro Valley office.
very good
Doctor John Chiu and Doctor Paul Hadomer Doctor Anderson Doctor West and their nursing staff the best.
I had good experience.
Based on my hx - ran useless 5-10 second ECG. Should have been 60 seconds, as I told him.
Felt a bit rushed for a yearly check-up. just took about 15 minutes.
Defensive, closed minded, not very friendly. When I tried to describe what I was looking for in a provider, he backed away & crossed legs & folded arms over chest.
I seek more detailed explanation of test results.
Provider speaking Chinese, I like.
Excellent care.
Great confidence in Dr. Chiu.
