She was a joke!! My doctor in the practice retired. I decided to stay with the practice because I figured they had all of my records. I'm 60 and had a hysterectomy in 2020 removing everything except both my ovaries. Dr. Vu could not figure out why surgent left my ovaries. She said, I could see if you were 40, but 60?? I felt as if at 60, she thinks your life is over. Told me there was no reason for me too see her. What about Menopause?? I guess if your older than 40 and not seeing her because your pregnant, don't bother. Total waste of time. Shame on you Dr. Vu.

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

I was referred by a colleague to your practice because of your practice is known for being able to provide impeccable service, but recently I encountered some really poor customer service. On February 23, 2017 at 12:22 pm, I contacted Sharon (she hesitated to give her name at first/I’m not sure if she gave her real name) from billing/collection department because of a no show noticed I received. I explained to her that I was a new patient and was not aware of policy and I apologized for not in
