    Dr. Hu has been amazing. I have great respect for her surgical skill, but even more respect for the way she goes out of her way to accommodate her patients. She is kind and thorough and I trust her to care for my rather complicated eyes. plus when my flight was delayed and I was unable to make our scheduled appointment she stayed after work in order to see me. I was actually pretty blown away by this as most physicians I've seen in the past would not have been as flexible nor would they have take personal time to see a patient.

    I might be blind in my right eye without Dr Hu quickly and decisively acting on her initial examination and arranging surgery for me on the afternoon of the same day.

    Dr. Hu is the BEST! Although everything went very well, she was sympathetic about the concerns I was having at one point.
