Patient Comments (4)
Pleasanton, CA |
Dr Hu spent about 25 minutes typing on her laptop and jumped to a conclusion on the diagnosis. At the end of a 20 minute visit she had the nerve to charge $617.00 which will not be covered by insurance because of the enormous deductible that I have to pay. She also prescribed a medicine that caused side effects. We saw her for a follow up visit for a whooping 5 minutes and she charged $340.00. Again, not covered by insurance because of the outrageously high deductible.

Dr Hu was cold, condescending and impatient. She spent most time typing away on her laptop instead of listening to you. She was visibly upset when I politely asked her a question. I came out of her office not learning more than when I came in. It's rare today to find a doctor who acts superior toward her patients. I blamed myself for not reading the poor reviews about her.
Pleasanton, CA |
I was seen by Dr. Hu as an inpatient. She was not a good listener nor seemed to be particularly interested in my case. She ordered no tests at all and spent very little time with me.
in San Ramon, CA |
Completely incompetent and easily distracted. Poor diadnostician
