What People Say About Dr. Hong Xu, MD

Wonderful, caring, informative doctor! I was very impressed with Dr. Xu on my first appointment. She listened attentively to my concerns and looked over many, many prior test reports that I brought for her to see and took her time and copied many of them for my file. She immediately ruled out many diseases with a very thorough physical exam and eased my concerns about other illnesses right away. Blood work will be done to re-confirm her diagnosis. I would highly recommend Dr. Xu.

Dr. Xu is has no bedside manner what's so ever. She is unprofessional, and does NOT return phone calls. I had blood work and x-rays taken at the office on December 20, 2017 and as of this date have not received the results. She was supposed to fax all results to my primary care physician and she has not. When I call her office, she is either on vacation or the office is closed. Now I know why it was so easy to get an appointment with her, most Rheumatology doctors have a long waiting list.

All my life I have had severe Rheumatoid Arthritis and have seen many doctors. This doctor has to be the worst! I waited an hour to get a refill on a medication that I have been taking for months and have had no relief. I keep telling her but she ignores me gives me the script than sends me out the door. What kind of doctor is that? Don't become a doctor if you don't wanna help people. My son saw her because he has Lupus and he was told No Percocet for you when he didn't even ask for it.

Has no regard for considering alternative treatments or supplements that were confirmed to improve my RA as per her Vectra blood tests. CurCumin can be used as a natural anti inflammatory and she said she knows nothing about it. REALLY? What kind of doctor does not want to look into or research a natural supplement, beneficial for numerous conditions, that is clearly helping a patient? wouldn't you want to help others if you did some research and could offer a more natural approach?
