Exceptional. I was originally diagnosed by a different office wit COPD and continued with them for ab out three years. It was very unsatisfactory for a variety of reasons; mostly that the firm in total seemed colossally indifferent to their patients. Finally in desperation I managed to get an appointment with Dr. Tu and have have a decidedly improved experience and I am greatly relieved and confident with the change.
