      Dr. Tu is outstanding. I always have a 100% of his attention when I'm there. He listens, analyses and thinks about your questions and tries to give you full answers. We all need more doctors like Dr. Tu.

Dr. George Tu was very understanding, a good listener and fully answered all my questions and concerns that made me feel very comfortable. He is concerned also about my other medical needs.

      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.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
