The experience in the office and waiting room has been extremely negative far outweighing the doctor’s competency. We’ve seen Dr Chau for 2 years for our 2 children since they were infants and each time we’ve had to wait for over 90 minutes before being seen (extremely inconvenient especially when waiting with a toddler)

Allergy test was performed smoothly and I felt comfortable the entire time. Doctor took time to listen to my needs and explain the test. Would highly recommend!

Dr.Chau was given to us by default which is part of the problem. We felt like she was very disorganized, lack of records keeping, no knowledge of working with kids, she seemed very annoyed by all our questions and gave us very quick generic replies. In conclusion she said your son needs 4 allergy shots per week which scared u. We asked her if we can do injections by our family doctor she talked my wife out, got the feeling she was loosing business. Also she failed to tell us about alternatives
