I have been seeing Dr Hu for several years for leakage in my left eye and she has been most professional and personal with my treatment. I have reccomended her to several of my friends that have had issues. They all love her!

I have been in the care of a number of eye doctors. Dr. Hu is excellent in her care of the patient as well as the patients eyes.
in Wernersville PA |
Dr. Hu has a great personality, takes the time to explain the tests and I feel is competent in her field.
West Lawn, PA |
Dr. Hu is knowledgeable, kind and understanding. As a new patient to her practice I found her to be a good listener and someone who took the time to get to know me, my eye history, and the particular issues I have with my eyes. She encourages questions and explains everything well. I left feeling very comfortable and confident that I will receive excellent advice and care from her. Thank you, Dr. Hu.

Dr Hu takes time with her patients she talks with them and people like that very much when your doctor takes the time to converse with you. I just love Dr Hu.

I have been receiving injections in both eyes for the past four years. Dr. Hu just makes you feel relaxed and very assured that the injection is just a walk in the park. I would have trouble trusting anyone else.
in Hamburg, PA |
She is always very nice and informative on your condition. I always had Dr. Malloy and was assigned to Dr. Hu and was a little disappointed because I really liked Dr. Malloy. But I have seen Dr. Hu the last several visits and she couldn't be nicer and more concerned about your eyes and their condition. I am happy with her and will continue seeing her when I need her and for my yearly check up. I feel she is very well qualified in her field.
