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.

I agree with Lacy he treated me like a criminal and was very rude and threatening me! I left in tears with no meds that last day now I have suffered strokes and an aortic dissection major stuff and I have real pain but he could care less and sent me out to find another doctor for my pain! I was hurt and humiliated how I was treated not professional at all he made me feel like I was a criminal!

Dr. Lau is awesome. I look forward to my appointments with him, he always takes the time to work on my back which my other doctor never did. He's very understanding and doesn't try to make decisions about my medication for me (like my old pain doctor did which is why I left). Sometimes I have to bring my toddler to appointments and he can be really annoying but Dr. Lau has never complained he's always nice to my little one. Everyone in office is nice and wait time is exceptionally short.

Im a patient of Dr. Kau for approx. 2 weeks now and very satisfied with him helping me with my medical issues. Treats me very nicely and listen's to me voicing my medical issues He's following up on my physical health issues where past doctor left off recently came back from MN after 15mos. He picked up on it right away with no delay. I'd highly recommend him to anyone.

Dr. Lau's bedside manner is highly dependent on his present state of mind. He has been friendly & helpful toward me as well as insensitive & insulting. This caused a lot of anxiety prior to my appointments with him - would he be pleasant or abrasively critical? Would he make judgments about my personal life (about which he knew very little)? Would I get the time I needed or be quickly herded out? No patient should have to worry about being treated by a doctor so unprofessionally.
