Patient Comments (1)
Dr. Hu is extremely knowledgeable and efficient. When Western medicine failed and I could not walk on a foot where the broken bone had healed, she diagnosed and treated it and I was walking without crutches after 2 sessions. After the first session, the pain subsided. Not only is Dr. Hu an expert in TCM, she also has an MD in cardiology from UCLA and is a sound and reputable nutritionist. Few practitioners can approach her level of excellence, and we are lucky to have her in San Diego.
