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

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

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.
