Dr. Gu's Care Philosophy

As a Family Medicine physician I care all age and gender patients, but except for common disease I am very interested in Gynecology, Geriatric, Pediatric and urgent care including Lac repair, abscess I&D, ingrown nail removed, corneal foreign body removed. I always believe that communication between a physician and a patient is very important in successful patient care, so I take time to talk with my patients.

    She is not patient, she only cares about money, not the patients.

    Dr. Gu's office is very chaotic and unprofessional. She is unprofessional and unfriendly to her patients. My visit at her office was to get a prescription refilled. She failed to send the pharmacy a week after my visit. When I called in to find out what was going on, she said she didn't have any note in my chart. Would you get treated by this doctor?

    We have been patients of Dr. Gu for over a year now. We met her at University Place Therapy Hospital. We are very happy with Dr. Gu and her treatment of our problems and we respect her experience. She is a good friend and a very nice person. She will listen to our problems and she will give us good advice and help to solve them. She is always available to help us.
