Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I am forced to see him and have been for a while, i don't want to go into details because I'm afraid of repercussions, but if you are able, choose a different place to go, i wouldn't wish my experience on anyone.

As a healthcare provider myself, I am appalled with this physician. He never makes eye contact with you while speaking, rushes you when you want to ask questions about the plan of care, mumbles under his breath to the point you cannot understand him-almost as if he is speaking to himself more than the patient, abruptly starts and stops very strange varieties of pain medications without rationale (other than he had a recent drug rep in his office who was recommending the medication), and NEVER confirms where your pain is or what your pain score is. Absolutely do not recommend this physician whatsoever.

I've seen Dr. Hu for several years. He listens well, is compassionate and caring. He has gone to bat with workmans compensation to get me treatment they had worked to deny me. Dr. Hu has been very thorough in evaluating me and monitoring my treatment. I've had several RFAs done by him, which can be a procedure that is frightening, and he is steady and puts me at ease. Highly recommend.

Nightmare. My wife had a worker's comp claim and we were sent to him. She had been diagnosed and treated for RSD/CRPS in the past and he refused to diagnose her. The condition spread to other parts of her body and he refused to even look at those areas. We had to go elsewhere to get treatment and we are still suffering, although competent doctors did help us. Dr Hu is a worthless physician.

He's a quack. And a liar. My husband had a bone scan it showed he had RSD the quack said no you don't and ordered another one guess what showed he had RSD. When he sent in my husband's report to work comp. he lied in his report to the attorney's. My sister in-law warned us about him should have listened to her.

He was condescending and rude. When my husband told him he would like to be off medications, and be pain-free, he told him that when people tell him that, then he knows they are really here FOR pills... What?? He said that’s what his experience has been... My husband hates medication and went there to be OFF of them! Dr suggested an injection. My husband agreed and then was told “well, when you can make up your mind what you want, then let me know”, and then left the room. Not going back!

Dr, Hu change my life for the better. I was going to K.U. and they want to do major back surgery of multiple joint fusion. And wasn't still going to be even close to a 50 to 60% better. I had no back surgery and with working Dr. Hu I manage to get my back fixed and I can move and even now go jogging and I am not in any pain medicine. Just Tylenol I take 2 times daily or when needed.

This Dr. Hu or whatever his name is a greedy dimwitted jerk. This nimrod put my wife through the financial wringer (both of us). Our bill would dramatically change from one week to the next and kept making excuses to have her come in rather than her monthly visit. Took my wife in for her third visit in a months time ($35 copay each time) and said he wouldn't see her this time cuz because of a difference in the payment that was given. We were told it was $86, we arrive and it was $70 more. Greedy

Record every session because he will twist your words and/or forget them all together and report whatever looks best on him. He has HORRIBLE bed side manner and is sexist. He is a pain management Dr that has no concept of pain or empathy. I wouldn't recommend this Dr to my worst enemy. His office staff is his only saving grace and I feel sorry for them.

Told me he was a "specialist" in the chronic pain condition I had been previously diagnosed with only to tell me I did not have it. He is a workmans comp Dr. Need I say more. Stellite ganglion block was the most pain one I've had out of three different docs.
