Surgeons in the orthopedic field can be callous and disengaged from their patients. THAT'S NOT DR. SERENA HU, SHE'S ABSOLUTELY GREAT! She's high energy and clearly a skilled and talented surgeon. She performed both a microdiscectomy & some years later, a six level fusion at UCSF. When I was having a crisis, she always found time to see me. My spinal fusion is still holding up after many years. I'm incredibly lucky to have had her as my doctor while living in San Francisco.
