I'm a new patient with Dr. Vu. When I called to make an appointment, the office girl was very pleasant and understanding. My appointment was scheduled early the very next morning. Dr. Vu is professional and understanding and I could sense that she was actually concerned about my particular situation. She made me feel at ease and found a solution to what could have been a complicated situation. I consider myself a good judge of people and character and I would recommend Dr. Vu.

Horrible "bed side" manner. Ordered an unnecessary x-ray (MRI) would have been more appropriate and when we asked about it she refused to answer our question and was rude. She walked in after waiting over 3 hours and spent more time on her laptop than examining the patient. She didn't listen, she cut us off when speaking and was bothered by our questions. HORRIBLE
We understand that this patient desired an immediate MRI. Sometimes medical and insurance guidelines dictate that first line diagnostic modalities such as X-ray are necessary before proceeding to MRI. In such a case, ordering an MRI could leave the patient responsible to pay out-of-pocket to the imaging center for a very expensive test. We apologize for your disappointment with this approach -- we try to protect our patients both medically and financially.

I have been a patient of Dr. Vu since summer 2015. She is extremrly thorough with a wonderful bedside manner. Her staff is also very courteous and respectful.
