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.
in San Ramon, CA |
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
