What People Say About Dr. Shirley Pua, MD

Dr. Pau was very respectful to me. I had to go back in a year for another one but had to cancel numerous times because of my mother's illness and numerous hospital stays. I called to reschedule and was treated horribly by the scheduler, she said I can't go there now. I called back and spoke to office manager, Kristen who was very kind. She scheduled an appointment for me.

I was scheduled for 2 proceedures in the same day; a colonoscopy & a capsule endoscopy. With inadequate prepration by the Dr. & her staff, the capsule failed. Having anesthesia made my system all but stop. I was not told I should not lay down & was told ok to eat after 2 hrs. Even though I waited 4 hrs, the capsule never left my stomach & the only thing visable was the sandwich I ate.
