Horrible wait times, no one returns calls, bills for unnecessary consults, and takes forever to get a simple physical!

I have come to Dr.Vu for the last few years.I liked the quality care so much I travel from Littleton where I live.But this months visit was extremely disappointing.I was running 10 mins late, which I called before leaving home to make sure it was going to be acceptable.When I arrived they took me right away.I was told I had to choose what I wanted to address at this appointment blood work,2nd issue or 3rd issue.I was told by Dr. Vu's assistant that because I was 10 mins late she could only do 1.

Dr Vu's practice may be terribly full, but his knowledge, compassion, and thoroughness make him worth the wait. When our family has needed attention quickly, his associates within the practice have also proved extremely competent. We are fans!

After years with practice I was very disappointed with the care.

My Father used Dr Vu. Knowledgeable Physician with excellent support staff. Horrendous wait times make the visits very difficult for elderly patients.

Dr Vu seems like a good doctor but the wait times are unbelievable. They get you out of the lobby and you wait in the exam room. All three visits over the past 2 years I waited for over 2 hours for the doctor to come in. To make matters worse, yesterday he interrupted my exam by taking two phone calls on his cell phone!

Dr. Vu appears to be a pretty good doctor, but his policy of making patients go into the office every time we want a prescription re-filled is unreasonable. It smacks of his lack of trust of his patients, perhaps greed, and erring way way way on the side of too much caution. This is not the kind of relationship I seek in a doctor-patient situation. As an example, my previous GP would give me a CIPRO prescription with 3 refills a year for foreign travel - he trusted me, Dr. Vu does not.
