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.
in Houston, TX |
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?
in Houston, TX |
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.
