Great doctor, cares for her patients and helped me through some difficult times with compassion.
Buena Park, CA |
Dr. Cu gave me a very hard time during my post partum depression. She didn't care what I was going through, all she wants you to do is take the medication and does not even care that the medication makes you sick. She did not want to give me any time off of work. She said that I was ok and suggested that I talk to my therapist to get time off. I was suggested to take a 6 week post partum class which one is suppose to be off and dos not give me the 6 weeks off. She is not compassionate at all.

Dr. Cu does not willing to her patient. She does know what her patient's deeper symptoms. I needed her signature for my student loan forgiveness paper. She even did not remember she signed or not. She did not describe about the patient's mental problem on my paper. I asked again she said n/a. I was shocked by her neglect. I asked her phone appointment for helping. She called me at night time 9pm. It is not acceptable and made my symptoms worse. She just justified her mentions, not helped
