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!
in Monument, CO |
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.
