I’ve seen her once and was very encouraged by her knowledge, thoroughness and demeanor. I saw her at Caduceus in Yorba Linda.

Dr. Charu has cared for me for the past 5 years. She is an excellent listener and a very caring doctor. She does not put herself above her patients therefore making her a person who is capable of explaining to them their medical condition in terms that are simple to understand; only a person who loves his or her profession is capable of doing this. I would recommend Dr. Charu to anyone who is looking for a doctor who can empathize with the pain he or she is feeling.
