I would highly recommend Dr Lau. She has been my Dr since 2013. I had lung cancer and continue to see her for my follow ups. You can tell she is anointed with the gift of caring for anyone who has and had lung cancer. I trusted Dr Lau from the beginning because of her bedside manner and straight forwardness to your questions and concerns . Thank you Dr Lau and your staff!!!!
