I have an asthma that is progressively getting worst the past year. I have to take a large dose of prednisone to control my wheezing. I saw Dr Tu this week. He spent a long time discussing my illness. Also went over my current medications. I will have multiple blood tests to find out what's causing my asthma. I have a lot of faith on Dr Tu..

Lost our repeated testing results and machine used for same twie. Office staff blamed losses on Dr Tu.....rude arrogant and non caring staff....Dr Tu protected them even after they accused him of losing files and reports openly. Arugmentive and very non professional staff and yet Dr Tu protected them....we departed and will never return....we need and require professional and complete record permanency and caring office and doctor. If in doubt do not.

Dr. George Tu and nurse Anna are both outstanding. Simply two of the best in the medical field. I have never had such professional, knowledgeable and yet kind and caring medical professionals in my life. Dr. Tu has gone way beyond the call of duty to make sure that I am healthy both physically and mentally. I do not know what I would have done without him. Anna is exceptionally kind and knowledgeable as well. They truly take the time to listen. God blessed me to have these two in my life.
