SHC Patient, Feb 2016

Serena Hu is THE best!

SHC Patient, Nov 2015

I have complete confidence in and great respect for Dr. Hu and her staff!

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

Dr. Hu is OUTSTANDING!!! I have recommended her to others.

SHC Patient, Oct 2015

I think Dr. Hu is incredible.

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

Dr. Serena Hu is the best there is for back surgery!!

SHC Patient, Aug 2015

Dr. Hu, Kathleen Tam and Dr. Hu's Medical Assistant are all excellent. That's why it doesn't get any/much better than Stanford Health.

SHC Patient, Jul 2015

Dr. Hu instills confidence with her ability to see to get to the point and be thoroughly professional with great interpersonal skills.

SHC Patient, May 2015

Appointment was way too rushed. I had two significant concerns at my appointment, and only one was addressed at all. The dr/office has not followed through on any of the things they said they'd do at the appointment (call with test results, etc.) and it's been two weeks. Very disappointing.

SHC Patient, May 2015

Serena Hu is very simply the best. Some questions in this survey are not well constructed, as many times an NA should be allowed

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Dr. Hu is an excellent surgeon and a wonderful human being. She listens to her patients concerns and includes them in the critical thinking/decision making about their medical care. Her staff are very respectful and caring, as well. She is also very good with patients' caregivers, many of whom are anxious about their family member's medical conditions. I highly recommend her to others. No review is enough to credit her for being a phenomenal, respectful, and caring surgeon.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

Again, I wasn't impressed by her cervacle experience, but I would have conficence in lower back surgery. I wish she had said "I haven't had much experience, and referred me on.

SHC Patient, Apr 2015

I will refer this doctor to my friends & family in future.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Dr. Hu has the WORST bedside manner of any physician I have ever met. I left her office in tears after she entered the room with her resident and proceeded to berate me and accuse me of not anserwing the residen'ts questions.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Dr. Hu and her PA Kathleen Tam were EXCELLENT in all of these categories.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

thank you.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Both of my two visits here have felt rather rushed to me. I still had more questions.

SHC Patient, Jan 2015

Dr. Serena Hu is a bright professional whom I trust.

SHC Patient, Nov 2014

Dr. Hu is peerless! Pre-eminent.

SHC Patient, Nov 2014

Next steps are a little vague. I specifically asked that report be sent to me and my PCP. I have yet to get report.

SHC Patient, Oct 2014

Dr. Hu, physician's assistant, Kathleen were very good. Dr. Hu performed surgery on my back while working at UCSF.

SHC Patient, Sep 2014

Dr. Hu is excellent - does seem to be too busy - but efficient - next time I'll be wise and have a written list -

SHC Patient, Jul 2014

Dr. Hu has done an incredible job for me and is very friendly and a great asset for your hospital.
