Excellent doctor. Patient and disarming demeanor. My second visit, and neither was to present good news. Dr. Zu was very helpful and ensured that I fully understand the diagnosis and treatment plan. Highly recommended.

Worst experience I have ever had with a doctor. Was belittling, obnoxious, rude and either did not have the knowledge to answer my questions and address my concerns or just did not care enough to respond to my concerns. He was egotistical and obnoxious and those words are the kinder of the ones I really would like to write.
