Dr Chukwu is a remarkable physician. I owe my life to her ability to make tough decisions for difficult patients in impossible situations. She is an asset to the miraculous heart transplant team and surgeons she works with and is an invaluable member of the wake forest hospital family. She is passionately dedicated to the heart health of her patients and will confront harmful lifestyle patterns to save lives. Her tough love is mandatory because she always fights for the patients "Best Life".
