Dr. Tu is AMAZING! He took a 60 year old arm and after having total rotator cuff surgery put it back together again. My arm is completely healed. His ability to understand his patients, listen to his patients, and provide the needed support and knowledge is truly remarkable! I have recommended him to many people because he is such an excellent surgeon. I thank God every day for Dr. Tu!!!

I have had knee pain for over 15 years and every physician I went to about the knee said, "well if you lose weight your knee will feel better". Dr Tu was the first to offer an alternative, which has made me pain free since July. He injected a lubricant in my knee that has allowed me to walk longer, play volleyball again and just be more active. He is very patient, explains things well and is thorough and kind. It is rare to find an excellent orthopedic surgeon with a great bedside manner.

Dr. Tu is the most compassionate individual I've met when it comes to Dr's. He's very knowledgable and listens to what you might know as well. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Tu His first priority and I do mean FIRST priority is the healing and wellness of his patient I truly could go on and on about him. He's genuinely a nice individual who just happens to be a Dr. What a blessing! Dr. Tu repaired a major tear in my husband's rotator cuff after a bad fall. He's incredible!! Love him

Dr. Tu operated on my meniscus 11/2 years ago and I just saw him for a broken bone in my ankle and foot. He is fantastic. He's very thorough and spends a lot of time with his patients. My surgery had a wonderful result. I was back exercising within 6 weeks. I'm sure treatment for my broken bones will be just as successful. Also, wonderful office staff. Highly recommend!!

Dr. Tu is very friendly and takes the time to explain things to you. He operated on both of my shoulders, one when I was 15 and the other when I was 20. I was able to be a softball pitcher again and continue to be so active with no limitations. I recommend Dr. Tu to everyone!

Dr. Tu spent extra time with me explaining the procedure and even gave me a personal phone call. Most importantly, his surgical technique allowed me to get up and running again with minimal pain and down time.
