The office location is extremely convenient, and facilities are clean. It is slightly confusing as there are many other doctors who share the space, but staff are polite and will direct you in the right way. I called their office to ask about changing my appointment and it was quick and easy-- someone picked up the phone right away and changed it over the phone. I was a little early to my appointment so I waited a bit, but Dr. Lau saw me very close to my appointment time. She was clear and to the point, and I booked a [diagnostic] procedure for the next week. I didn't feel that she was pushing me in one direction or another, it was clear that for my condition, it was necessary for an accurate diagnosis. However, since the condition isn't debilitating, it was completely my choice. I would recommend her to my friends and family!

I think Dr. Lau is very interested in why you're there to see her. She really wants to help her patients from my personal perspective. I will consider Dr. Lau as more than a doctor running patients through her practice. I think of her as a true doctor that wanted to be a doctor for the right reasons.

Dr. Lau was very informative in explaining what I needed to know in connection with the colonoscopy that she was going to perform (and did perform at a later date) as it related to another condition I have. And the procedure went well, thanks to her ability and her team, which also was very professional and helpful. I'm a stickler for not waiting long and that would be my only complaint. For my consultation, I was told when I arrived that she was running late and to come back in an hour. For the colonoscopy, at 8:30 a.m., I was again told she was running late, although this time, as I recollect, the wait was not much beyond a half hour.

I am incredibly frustrated with this team. They sent my prescription to the incorrect pharmacist. Completely disorganized - I had several assistants call me the day before my colonoscopy, and they were unaware of the other phone calls. Lastly and most upsetting, I was never called with the test results. I followed up twice and was told "the lab never sent the information" - more than 2 weeks after the procedure. I am quite upset and would not recommend seeing this office.

She was very informative. She listed out all the possibilities and all my options for a definitive diagnosis and treatment options. Since it was my first visit, it's hard to judge whether or not she is making recommendations that are best for my particular case. I have some follow up appointments so I will know better in a month or so how she did with proper diagnosis and treatment.

Nancy was very polite and didn't keep me waiting at all. The entire experience was seamless. The only feedback I can give is on diagnosis. She gave me so many options that I didn't really know what was wrong with me. I feel better now though, so that's good. In all fairness, there were a lot of things that could've been the cause.

Dr. Lau and her team were great. Just ignore the rude people in the lobby out front! Dr. Lau listened carefully and broke down a lot of complicated information for me very clearly. She answered all of my questions and made me feel very comfortable. I felt like I knew exactly what to expect before being examined, which is rare. Would definitely recommend her.
