    Los Angeles, CA |
    I dreaded visits to her office! She has been rude, condescending, and argumentative Every Single time! Even more so when asked about treatments suggested by the referring specialist! Someone mentioned moody, but she's plain disrespectful. Also, there's been a few occasions when I've had to wait for over 2 hours past my appointment time to be treated. However, once, when I was 20 minutes late, she refused to see me! Then had me wait 40 minutes to reschedule. Glad to be done with her.

    Dr. Lau is very knowledgable and can be very helpful, and much of the time is kind and pleasant. However, she can be moody and unprofessional if your case requires any additional work from her, for example, a letter to the insurance company on your behalf, or for your employer, or communication with the hospital when you are a patient, etc. Also, if you do not make the progress that she wants you to, she may blame you, and again become rude and unprofessional.
