in Hempstead TX |
I went to the Urology Depatment of Memorial Hermann as part of screening as candidate for kidney transplant .... there was NOTHING wrong with me. Within 24 hours leaving his office ... I developed flu like symtoms ... and burning during urination. I spent the next 4 days in bed. My primary care doctor said I have a urinary tract infection and gave me an antibiotic short .... and a prescription for a series of antibiotic pills. It was caused by Dr. Shu and his unsanitray equipment.

Hands down the best dr you will ever come across. I only wish he practiced other parts of the body. He is EXTREMELY thorough in his explanations, and gives you as much time as you need to get all of your questions answered. Not for one minute did I ever feel rushed. His staff is extremely kind, and they are very communicative. The only negative is that it is in downtown Houston!

When you call his office no one ever answers the phone. I have tried for 2 weeks to get someone to call me back to no avail. My doctor's office even called and couldn't talk to a live person. I went to his office personally and the lady at the front desk said neither him or his clinical coordinator were in. She gave me the direct line to his clinical coordinator which I called and of course all I got was an answering machine. I left a message to call me back which didn't happen of course.
