What People Say About Dr. Chu Kwan Lau, MD
Reply
I had Dr. Lau as my doctor over twenty years ago. I moved away so had to find another doctor. Never did I find anyone has knowledgeable about my diabetes as him. He was always right about everything he talked about. I may not have liked what he had to say, but this Dr. told me what I needed to hear to become a healthier person. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS DOCTOR if you are having issues with your diabetes. Peggyk

I would like to suggest that Dr. Lau exhibit some friendliness. He was cold and not personable. I felt like I was treated as a medical specimen instead of as a human being. I asked a last-minute question as he was leaving and he seemed annoyed as he quickly glanced over his shoulder, barely answered the question, while not stopping to see if I understood. He is obviously competent as demonstrated by his record, but needs to improve his "bedside manner," if you will.
