What People Say About Dr. Richard Zhu, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
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!
