I never got to meet the doctor, since I had to cancel the appointment. I needed a colonoscopy, but was told by Aetna that they would not cover it. I later got a call from Dr. Chiu's office that they had called my insurance & told me I COULD get it if I paid them at least $543, that I could pay them half & make payments on the rest, so I rescheduled. I am retired & barely scraping by & realized I couldn't even afford half of that at the time, hoping I could get it done at PFD time. When I cancelled the appointment I was told I had to pay a $75 cancellation fee! Not once while in contact with them previously was I told about a cancellation fee. The lady actually said, "well, it's cheaper than $543". The doctor may be great, but at least part of her staff stinks!

Tried to charge me $50 for records (only 2 sheets of paper). Luckily my normal doctor also had a copy. Working with Dr. Chiu was easy and she did take the time to explain things.
