    Dr. Lau took the time to explain to my grandson what things he might need to do and let [NAME REMOVED] ask questions which Dr. Lau took the time to answer and make sure my grandson understood the answer.

    Dr. Lau is the best! Handing our child over to have surgery is not an easy thing but Dr. Lau made us as parents so comfortable and confident in her care. He also made sure we had all our questions answered and took his time. Thank you!
