He did not address my questions or concerns. He spent most of the office visit looking at his computer. Very cursory physical exam.

Before we found Dr. Xu my Fathers team of heart surgeons had given up on him saying there was nothing more they could do for him, and that he had, at best,a few months to live. It was during an emergency room visit to Sutter that we met Zi-Jian and he changed my Father's life. With Procedures and medicine and only because of Dr.Xu's extreme dedication and extraordinary abilities did my Father go on to live and have a better quality of life for over 8 years.Dr. Xu was our Miracle.
