Review of Dr. Au

-

I was satisfied with the procedure. Pre-exam consultation was fine. I was given instructions for prep. Staff doing procedure was fine. One nurse had trouble inserting IV.

Review of Dr. Au

-

Horrible experience. Staff is rude and so is the doctor. Especially when you ask questions. I had colon issues and he was unable to diagnose me. After ending up at the ER I asked nurses for a gastro doctor referral which turned out to be a blessing. That doctor was able to diagnoise and fix my problem. When I hear that someone is going to see Dr. Au I tell them run not walk away from seeing him. My star choice is less than one.

Plan on waiting at least an hour and a half just to be seen. Doctor is hard to understand with his accent.

Review of Dr. Au

-Hanford |

I wish I could give this place a 0 out of 5 because this is one of the most unorganized unprofessional and ridiculous office I have ever seen. They set an appointment and thn hours later they call you thn you dnt even see the dr until hours later! I asked what is the point of you guys making appointments if we are not getting in on them. No answer!!! First time I was left and told forgotten about. I was told they didn’t see me!!!! What the hell!!!!!!!

Review of Dr. Au

-Tulare, CA |

Dr. Alvin is the most unprofessional, DR. we have ever come across. From the beginning, it was uncomfortable and awkward. He never even introduced himself when he walked into the surgery room. His nurse stated that Dr. Alvin would be doing my procedure, and if I had any questions for him. He kept his back turned towards me the whole time, never acknowledging me. He made it quite apparent that he did not want to be bothered with the question. He never even spoke to myself/family post surgery.

Review of Dr. Au

I had an appointment with the Dr for my colonoscopy never met the man was asked some questions by his PA and given a date for the colonoscopy which I quickly canceled.may be it's just me but if I'm going to be put under and have five feet of scope but up my tail pipe I would expect to have a face to face to get questions answered from the person doing the procedure. The more I ask the more negative I hear. My advise to all is do your research prior to having any Dr.perform any procedure on you

Review of Dr. Au

- in Visalia, CA |

Dr. Au is quiet and business like and capable. His nurses at the Hanford facility are what make the dreaded procedure tolerable and even enjoyable. They are friendly and funny without being dismissive of the anxiety one might be feeling during the visit. They make sure you are as comfortable as possible and kept up to date on what's going to happen next. As always, nurses make the doctor shine!

Review of Dr. Au

- in Visalia, CA |

Terrible patient communication for procedures done outside his office. Never sent any paperwork with info needed regarding endoscopy. Got a call the day before from a surgical center giving a new time & location for procedure. Procedure then moved to hospital the day of appointment. Then got a call yesterday from hospital for appointment the following day for a procedure we were never told about. Again, zero communication from Dr. Au. We weren't able to go to the appointment.

Review of Dr. Au

- in Hanford, CA |

He explained the outpatient procedures that he would be doing. He was very accommodating since I am not able to lay on my left side due to having broke my collar bone, 3 tears in the muscle, and had having another fall soon after.
