Dr. Vu is fantastic-- really listens to her patients. Hard to get a new patient appointment (took me over three months) but was worth it. Office runs on time, the staff are friendly and professional, and while Im sure they listen to people all day they dont make you feel like they are sick of listening to your problems. Dr. Vu herself is so fantastic and friendly-- she clearly wants to know her patients. She does a thorough exam, including areas other than your pelvis! so glad i found her
