  • Mar 25, 2024

    Dr. Du was the most professional, listening to my concerns and explaining in detail my MRI. Immediately came up with a gameplan to get me back to my best life.

  • Mar 8, 2024

    Dr. Du explained the cause of my symptoms and pruposed a clear plan for treatment. I felt informed compared to most doctor appointments which somehow leaves you feeling judged.
