Dr. Lau was very thorough and I felt that she really listened to what I had to say. I really appreciated this since she is the third doctor i've seen for the issues I am experiencing and I finally feel like I am getting somewhere in terms of diagnosis.

I really like Dr. Lau upon meeting her. Very professional and clear on what my next step should be to be better health. Some review said she was robotic or rude but what I saw was her acknowledging what you, as a patient, is telling her. Side note: She can speak a bit fast so remember to bring a notebook! :) The wait was not too bad. At first I felt odd that no one was there at the front desk but one of her staff came out 10 mins before my appointment time to check if I were already there. (I think that is where the real deskwork is). I was soon brought to see Dr. Lau after I finished my paperworks. The female staff I spoke with were super nice too.

Dr. Lau is efficient in treating ailments. She took my thoughts into consideration when creating the next best steps for my treatment. Her hours are also make her reachable, so you don't have to wait weeks to make an appointment. Aside from her flexibility, she is very communicative about lab results and diagnosis.

I did have a wait but didn't mind since it's because she doesn't rush her appointments. Dr Lau asked lots of questions, took time to listen and was very detailed in her feedback.

Dr. Lau is a fabulous doctor! I really enjoyed meeting with her. She is SUCH a good listener and communicator. After my first appointment, she called me on the phone and we spoke for 30 minutes and she explained all of my test results. Then I was able to cancel the follow up appointment, and instead schedule a colonoscopy. She was so great during the colonoscopy too. I really trust her. Her office sees you instantly, there is never a waiting period. Even for the colonoscopy, there was zero waiting time. Everything was fast and efficient. I love it.

I was nervous to visit a gastroenterologist for the first time, but Dr. Lau was kind, and made me feel comfortable. She was very thorough and took the time to talk through everything with me. The office is also very clean, and don't let the colder demeanor of the rest of the office staff bother you because Dr. Lau is certainly worth a visit.

I would never go to see Dr. Lau's office again!! I made the appointment at 4:00 o'clock and had to wait for 40 min to see the doctor!!!! If you are too busy to see so many patients, just don't make too many appointments available!!! She finished my appointment in a rush way and later I found that there is something wrong with my prescription!!! And I can't pick up my medication for the whole weekend!!! Worst experience ever!!!

Doctor Lau was great - asked tons of questions to get to the heart of my symptoms and was able to diagnose two possible paths, as well as a variety of treatment options for each, right away. Very sweet and understanding. I was not seen for 45 min after my appt time, but the assistant was super apologetic and I'm guessing it was just an off day. Staff were very proactive about looking into what treatments were covered by my insurance. Office is located inside a larger medical facility, so waiting room is HUGE + treatment rooms are all comfy, clean and modern. Recommend!
