My mom had Ovarian Tumors and had bad experience with another Dr. who only cared money and kept delying my mother's treatment and doing the same exams over and over again. However, after I transfered my mom to Dr. Pua, everything changed. She knows what she is doing, and is very fast with her diagnose with follow-up treatments. Within 3 week, my mom recieved all treatments she needed. She is also very responsible, constantly checking on my mom. My mom loved her and forced me to write this:)
