Dr. Kuo has a calm, professional manner. He is easy to talk to and takes time to answer questions and respond to concerns. He has a sense of humor as well , which helped me to be reassured when I met with him and discussed my health issues.

I sked if Dr. Fung had had any complaints from his patients with, for example, Atrial fibrillation, and the nurse wouldn't let me talk to him!

Review for Dr. Yau

He lacks compassion for the patient. A very assertive, condescending person. He does not offer any alternatives other than his way or the highway. However, he does know his specialty.

Review for Dr. Zahn

Similar situation as others. Visited ER, was seen by Triage nurse only. Left before seeing doctor. Doctor sends bill for 450$ (for services not rendered) - Insurance covers bill. Doctor sends separate bill for 450$ - threatens to send to collections if not paid.
