Dr. Tu always comes into the room with a friendly smile and a listening ear. I used to work at a hospital and I saw how Dr. Tu treated his patients respect and care. I also heard from many of his patients about how much they respected him. He is extremely competent. That's why I chose him to be my pulmonologist. I have and I will continue to refer patients to him without hesitation.

Dr. Tu and his staff are like, my life line. I was initially referred to Dr. Tu through USC Keck Hospital in California, as the best I could get out here in the Las Vegas Area. I cannot begin to tell you how grateful I am to be his patient. Every staff member in his office, like Robert, Anna, Janice, and even his colleague Dr. Chin, have always made me feel positive about my condition and each one has always been on top of ANY and/or ALL of my medical needs. I have a terminal condition that offers no cure... yet. I just feel really good leaving his office , knowing that they care and I matter. That's a deal breaker for me in medical care...because it reminds me that I got this, I am going to be ok. Its not always an easy situation for me to deal with, so the kindness, compassion, and support his office delivers to me really stands out and means a lot- and for that, I am thankful.
