Dr. Lau and his staff went above and beyond the call of duty. Everyone involved with my care went out of their way to make me feel welcomed and relaxed. Everyone was professional and courteous. And most importantly they made me feel like the main focus of their attention while I was there. They definitely treated the patient and not the illness that day!

Dr. Lau, was vague and did not answer my questions well. He was evading the answers, I asked him to explain my test results and he said oh well, you can\'t worry about all the things the radiologist writes on your report. It was a waste of my time and my money.
