in Lombard, IL |
I have been going to Dr. Tu for main years. He always takes the time to explain what the issues are and what needs to be going on. My mom&dad and younger brother also went\goes to Dr. Tu. I would recommend him to anyone. When I was in the hospital last month HE came to the hospital every day to check on my progress (over a week). At my follow-up appt. he is telling me step by step what I need to do to reduce the amount of meds I am on. A doctor that actually want you off meds!!!!! He is great
