The wait time for Dr. Tiu’s office is pretty unacceptable. I have had a total of 2 appointments with him so far, and I have had to wait 2 hours to be seen. Having to take time off of work, this is extremely inconvenient and inconsiderate.

I came in very nervous about my appointment, but the office staff made sure I was calm and relaxed before the doctor came in. Dr. Tiu is so great. He explains everything in a way that I understood and answered any questions that I had. I would recommend him to anyone that has any kind of breathing problems.
