Patient Comments (10)
Chicago, IL |
Terrible! Failed my grandma's procedure. She had to stay in ICU for two months. Never asked about her or anything. I hope she stops practicing! Please stay away from her.
in Oak Lawn, IL |
As a RN for almost 38 years, I witness the quality of a physician's practice, clinical knowledge and bedside manner. There is no one else I would go to as Dr. Lau is clinically outstanding, treats you as she would her own loved one and her bedside manner is excellent. Dr. Lau has a very rare combination of passion for on going education, clinical skills that all physician's cannot grasp and compassion for patient's as human beings.
Chicago, IL |
Indifferent and aloof. Definitely lacks compassion. I wish I read other reviews about her.
Chicago, IL |
She was in a hurry and on her phone texting all the time. No concern for me or my problems. A waste of my time.
Chicago, IL |
She was in a rush, did not listen to me and scheduled procedures without explaining anything.
Chicago, IL |
You can never teach her for your test results or after your procedures. When she calls you, instead of listening to you she gives a lot of excuses.
Chicago, IL |
She misdiagnosed my disease. Careless, lacks knowledge and experince but most importantly lacks empathy!
in Matteson, IL |
Dr. Lau was friendly and knowledgeable about a procedure that I was a bit anxious about. She has great bedside manners which made me confident and assured that I would be given great care. After my procedure, Dr. Lau gave clear results that were easy to understand.
in Orland Park, IL |
I just had a colonoscopy preformed by Dr. Cynthia Lau at South Suburban Advocate Center. I found her professional, through, caring and compassionate. Her entire staff treated me like a friend and were very accommodating. This was the best experience, I have ever had having any procedure. This was my third colonoscopy; the first at this facility.
in Homewood, IL |
I was very pleased with my experience with Dr. Lau. I went to see her to have a colonoscopy procedure performed. I found her to be very patient focused (caring and kind). She is an excellent communicator, answering all my questions before and after the procedure (she met with me after the procedure to share the results). I have total confidence that she did a thorough job.I usually don't write reviews but I wanted to share my experience with Dr. Lau in the hope that it can help someone else.
