Dr. Lau and her staff were very professional and helpful. They were running a little behind and I was seen about 30-40 minutes past my appointment time. The actual appointment did not take too long, and overall was a good experience. Getting out was easy and quick.

Dr Nancy is very soft spoken, she takes her time to explain things and also goes into details of what you need to know. She does not rush unlike some other doctors in NYC. I highly recommend her.

Dr. Lau is fantastic! I've been to many gastroenterologists before and she is the first one to actually create a detailed management plan for my conditions. Even better, she was trying go avoid medications with me unless I really needed them. She is very nice, thorough and suggested some tests that other doctors I've been to haven't thought to do. I really appreciated that even though I was her last patient, she still took her time with going over my history and any questions I had. I highly recommend her!

Coming back for a follow up but going to a specialist and she made me feel very at ease. She treated me with respect and we will definitely be keeping in touch. Front desk and reception was great too. Very perfessional. I work in customer service and i always treat others with kindness and respect and i felt that as soon as i walked in the door.

Doctor was patient, reassuring and informative. Weird thing is calls to the office to schedule a procedure were always directed to the voicemail though and somehow the calls were never returned. Switched doctor.

I had previously been very impressed with Dr.Lau's thoroughness and knowledge and explanation of my stomach issues...now my issues have worsened and she didnt seem to offer any remedies or solutions. Also her staff is terrible.

I have seen Dr. Lau before and I rate her very highly. She explains things very clearly, listens to--and answers questions. Her manner is polite and kind. About two years ago she diagnosed an ulcer that I had and treated it. Since then I have seen her several times. She is one of the best doctors I have ever seen.

Nancy was very welcoming from the opening bell. She stayed curious and attentive when describing my symptoms, and was able to detect some issues right away. I was appreciative of her knowledge and was clear about my condition. Straight to the point, and actually gave me natural remedies to help improve my symptoms - instead of prescription. Not many doctors do this, so I appreciate it THANK YOU!! Would recommend to anyone

Dr. Lau was very good. She was knowledgable, asked all of the right questions, and answered all of my concerns. The most important things to me upon leaving a doctor's office are knowing what I need to do regarding followup / further tests, what I can expect from the doctor, what information or further action they expect from me, and how the results of my followup might determine the next steps for treatment. Dr. Lau communicated everything really clearly leaving me with no questions at the end of our consultation. The office is located in the Mt Sanai Downtown Union Sq medical center, which will soon be (if it isn't already) one of the largest facilities in Manhattan. The location is not just convenient, but in close proximity to any other medical resources you might need while you're there.

Dr. Lau was very professional and courteous, and she explained everything patiently. More importantly, by following her instructions, my condition improved greatly! The only issue I had was with the lab (a separate entity within the bldg)--where things were a bit chaotic and the receptionist was grumpy when I visited to pick up my test kit and to drop it off. But that wasn't under Dr. Lau's control.
