I had my 1st appointment with Dr. Hu, I had x-rays, consultation, and injection all in one appointment. Dr Hu and his staff were friendly and knowledgeable. Dr. Hu listened to my concerns and gave me options. Highly recommend!

Dr Hu Doesn’t listen to the patient. Staff was rude and unfriendly. Worst experience of my life. Will never go back. They are only interested in billing for unnecessary X-rays mri and treatments. I paid for waste of time and to be treated poorly. No thanks never again!
