My initial visit to Imperial Family Medical Group and was seen by Doctor Goethe Hsu. I asked him about the medication I was takeing and he was looking through his book he carries of medications. He did not inspire confidence at all. I had blood lab work done and called in to see if they can mail me a copy of the results. They said I would have to send them an envelope and stamp to cover the cost of mailing the results to me. WoW talk about nickel and dime.....

Only have seen Dr. Hsu twice very short during examination doesn’t really explain much. But the worst part is the staff there well one in particular who is very rude, doesn’t answer questions, not very helpful or informative. One of the worst experiences I’ve ever had at a doctors office. Says they take walk ins but actually don’t, went in a 8 am to be seen as a walk in told me it would be a few minutes but ended up leaving 9:45 without even being checked. Unacceptable!!!

The person at the front desk, looks very unhappy at the job. Can't even smile to greet patients, its like she doesn't even care for their well being. I suggest the Dr. finds someone else to do her job, it doesn't take a genius to answer phone calls, schedule appointments & sit patients in the room. When you ask her a question she can't even give you an answer. She needs to get off her high horse, & know her job is of customer service & she is completely failing at it. Dr. needs to wake up!!!!!!

The office wants to charge you money every time you go in there, 1st time I paid my co-pay so I could get referrals, second time I shouldn't have had to pay, because under the ACA I am allowed one free office visit a year, with no co-pay as part of the yearly preventative wellness. I didn't know what the physical was going to entail, but my second visit was just to get test results and they wanted to charge me my co-pay. My ins even confirmed I shouldn't have had to pay. Needs to brush up on law
