My first time visit with Dr Tu. Looks like he was in a rush and did not pay much attention to what I was trying to explain. Straight away, he suggested me some oral medication even though I said I wanted to try Topical. Very knowledgeable but certainly did not spend time to listen to my actual condition and questions. Highly disappointed.

I just had a visit with Dr. Tu as a new patient. He was very reassuring and knowledgeable. He was patient with me (I asked a lot of questions), and spent his time answering my questions. I feel like he really goes above and beyond. He opened up a time slot for my procedure, even though he was scheduled to be on vacation. Seems to be very dedicated to his work.

This was my first visit as a new patient. He walked in on me when I was changing... I'm a female patient and the nurse had just given me the gown moments before. I took off my shirt and pants then he suddenly walked in without knocking then never apologized. He came back in and the full body exam took all of five minutes. I wish I was exaggerating. He started to get up and leave THREE TIMES while I asked him questions. He talked over me multiple times. The nursing staff were all wonderful.
Very talented with filler injections. Would recommend.

I was recently diagnosed with skin cancer by Dr. Tu. I appreciated that he removed the lesion within the timeframe he advised, and provided instructions and recommendations for follow up appointments. However, I found his approach in responding to my concerns and questions as condescending and patronizing, as he rushed through his explanations and excising of the lesion. It was disconcerting to hear the word cancer, and I needed some time to comprehend this new diagnosis. Very disappointing.
