Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

This guy had little to no patience listening to a prospective patient. I have a genetic disorder making me a "poor" candidate for "any" type of surgery; elective or other. Rather than listen to me, this guy decided long before I walked through his door that the only way to control my pain is to implant a spinal stimulator. How many times does one need to be told to read the records or listen to what I'm saying; "I am not a candidate for any type of surgery." He literally had me in tears and couldn't have cared less.

I went to see Dr. Zhu for excruciating pain caused by nerve damage. The doctor and his entire staff are gentle, patient, talk you thru the procedure and give me hope that my pain will subside after offering me nerve block treatment. After seeing 5 different neurologists with no results I found Dr Zhu. Dr. Zhu is the only one who gave me a possible solution. I couldn't recommend Dr. Zhu more highly.

Based on my experience, I would most highly recommend Dr. Zhu. I suffered joint pain for over 7 months and bounced from specialist to specialist and the condition only deteriorated. I was had difficulty walking and was unable to tie my own shoes. I am so fortunate to have discovered Dr. Zhu, because in less than an hour he accurately diagnosed the condition (which other providers were unable to do) and treated me all in one visit. I virtually floated out of his office. See him first!
