always warm and helpful. Makes good suggestions.
Sr Leu provides excellent care
Very happy with the care I received from Dr. Leu
I was one of her first patients, and I find Dr. Leu to be outstanding in every regard.
Dr. Leu walks on water. She's fantastic. Thorough, informative, firm if I'm not using sun screen regularly or doing what I need to do, and positive. Fantastic doctor!
Her reaction to me after explaining my problem was:"What do you want?" As if something was terribly wrong with my concern. Her attitude made me extremely uncomfortable and her body language made her manner even worst.
I can't put my finger on it, but I left feeling exactly that - a lack of confidence in this care provider. She never really looked at my skin up close and I just did not feel confident that she was taking in my full history and concerns. She was pleasant enough, but we didn't have a conversation about the plan of action in a way that felt good to me. There were a lot of suggested changes, but no step-wise plan of treatment. I left feeling like - if I implement all of these changes and take these new medications, how will I know what element of that is actually making a difference? So in that sense, I didn't feel like a holistic treatment plan was developed. Answers to some semi-basic questions I asked about spa services/facials and laser hair treatment felt unsatisfactory. Although she was pleasant enough, I am considering finding a new dermatologist that I feel a deeper level of trust in.
experience at all of the Menlo Clinic facilities is always excellent.
my physician was polite but I feel I need a bit more bedside manner'. she left the exam room with a goodbye' or we will follow up'...
Dr leu is probably the best dermatologist I have ever been to. She is the most thorough skin doctor. She examines every part of your body making sure there is no skin cancer. I wish alldoctors took the time to make sure all is well
Dr. Leu was very patient with my numerous questions, and unconsciously I asked the same question more than once (since I was nervous). Dr. Leu was very kind repeating the information patiently and clarifying as much as possible the implications and address my questions about statistical information. She has excellent bed manners. I am a new patient but from my experience so far I would recommend her to friends and family.
Dr. Leu recommended the special face soap & cream, for my skin problem, and they work well for me. She is always kind, and thoughtful. I'm so lucky to have her.
Excellent care in all aspects.
Dr. L is a true pro! I really appreciate her thoroughness and the time she gives me during the appointment.
would have appreciated a more personalized look at my skin and a conversation about what is going on with my acne
Dr. Leu is very thorough and conscientious. She is both competent and caring.
she's wonderful. i moved 2 hours away and drive back because I can't find anyone as good closer to my new residence.
Dr. Leu is an outstanding care provider
I have recommended Dr Leu to friends and a family member. She is excellent in every way: extremely thorough in doing whole body checks, good at listening to questions, and always willingly giving answers and additional information. She treats me like someone she is truly glad to see, and if there's a problem with my skin, she takes great care to explain treatment strategies.
excellent care, as is always the case
Dr. Leu is an outstanding physician
I see Dr. Leu every year and I will continue to do so. She is an excellent Dr.
thorough detailed exam, not rushed
Great doctor.
She was excellent and I would recommend her.
Dr. Leu is a wonderful doctor. I drive 2 hours each way to see her and it is well worth it!
Dr Lieu actually had a cancellation for he patient following me, so we expanded our visit for a full body check vs the isolated moles that I had scheduled for. This was great for me as it avoided the need for a separate follow up visit.
Dr. Leu is a "rock star" in dermatology. I would not have the quality of life I am living if it wasn't for her smile, thoroughness, and detailed orientation.
Dr. Ly is a very compassionate and knowledgeable physician!
Love Dr. Leu - have been seen by her for many years. She is great!!
Warm - good sense of humor suggestions I found helpful.

I am very happy with Dr. Leu.
I am very impressed with Dr Leu's concern for my care, and I have recommended her to others on Next-door.com
Dr. Leu is a great combination of scientist and humanitarian.
Dr. Leu is a soft spoken, caring professional who is very attentive to her patients. She carries herself with confidence, which in turn, evokes a high level of confidence in her from her patients. She is personable and always goes out of her way to inquire about how the patient's life is going, even if it does not necessarily directly relate to the field of dermatology or the reason for the visit. I appreciate her support and caring.
Dr. Leu is great. She explains what she finds & her recommendations very clearly.
good experience
Dr. Leu deserves the highest marks, professionally and personally.
Dr. Leu is the best. Very confident in her ability and she is very thorough and professional.

Dr. Leu does a very thorough skin exam - including the scalp - not checked by my previous dermatologist. She's just terrific!
best experience I have had seeing a physician in a very, very long time! Incredibly thorough and diligent. I felt like I received excellent care.
Dr. Leu is fantastic!
she remembers what we talked about and follows up on previous problems before moving onto new concerns.
Dr Lue has incredible bedside manner. She listens well, has answers for all of my questions, is professional, personable, funny, efficient all at the same time.
Dr. Leu is incredibly thorough in her methodology and successful in detecting even the smallest amount of skin disorders present. She remains my "Rock Star".
I'm very satisfied.
she's always great.
dr Leu is very thorough and pleasant
Dr Leu was great. I appreciate that she offered to extend my short appointment to do the full skin check (since her following appointment had just cancelled). This meant I was able to get seen for the skin check a full 6 months earlier than was planned -- which was apparently really good, since she found a suspicious mole that we have gotten biopsied (and hopefully isn't melanoma). My hesitation to recommend the practice is due only to the long wait times. If someone needs to see a doctor, not even immediately, but just within a month or so, this is not the practice I would recommend for them.
Dr Leu is thorough and very professional!
I am so fond of Dr. Leu.
Most importantly she types everything out for me so I can read it later.
Dr. Leu is an outstanding dermatologist. I can't imagine working with anyone else as I enter the age when skin becomes an issue.
Dr. Leu was very thorough and helpful in explaining various topics.

while better than another dermatologist i saw, dr leu still didn't listen, and i felt like she was blaming me for my condition and was somewhat condescending

dr Leu had made time for me on a day when she was fully booked but she still ensured I was fully informed about my condition. thank you very much
excellent doctor
had to get a procedure done while there, quick and efficient. explained what was going to happened and how quick results would come back
My original dermatologist is Dr. VanZander. Dr. Leu seems young but very capable, and I would recommend her to others.
Dr. Leu is exceptionally attentive and thorough.
I highly value Dr. Leu's thoroughness when doing a full-body skin exam. Over the years I've seen several other dermatologists who gave much less of a comprehensive exam. As a melanoma "survivor," she's tops.
Dr. Leu is excellent!
Excellent.
VERY HAPPY WITH CARE I GET WITH DR LEU
Horrible bedside manner! Extremely rushed, was treating/prepping another patient during my procedure, attempted to leave exam room before I had the chance to ask follow-up care questions/concerns or address two other problems. (!!!) Waited over 2 months for my appt. w/Dr. Leu, and she didn't seem to have enough time for a 5 min. convo. with me.
Dr. Leu is fantastic. Thorough, informative, listens well, couldn't ask for a better physician.
Dr. Leu gave me printed materials that helped me better understand and deal with my medical problems and treatment.
literally every person exhibited friendliness that was far above average
I have been seeing Dr. Leu for years. I enjoy seeing her for annual skin checks and have great confidence in her. She is pleasant, has a sense of humor and despite her busy schedule always takes the time to answer my questions and explain things clearly.
I appreciated the fact that Dr. Leu addressed an issue of concern on the spot & did a biopsy right then and there rather than have me come back later (skin biopsy pos. for CA).
Dr. Liu wasn't my regular doctor, but I like her and won't hesitate to consult with her if Dr. Van Z isn't available.
Dr Lu was terrific.
dr leu is very helpful. very curteous, very patence
very thorough
I would highly recommend Dr Leu
Dr. Leu is fantastic. Very up front, clear, and thorough.
Dr Leu was excellent. knowledgeable, very thorough and professional, and also spent plenty of time and did not sem rushed. She seemed genuinely interested in my concerns.
Dr. Leu is terrific. She has helped me tremendously with my skin.
Dr. Leu saw me on an emergency basis for shingles. I also had contagious chicken pox which I did not know but I was in excruciating pain. Dr. Leu gave me 2 meds. that helped reduce the pain enough so I could sleep through the days and nights of pain until I could bear it, and get back up. NO doctor had done this before! I am deeply indebted to her. Robin M. Whalen, PATIENT
Dr. Leu is very smart and is great at diagnosing and coming up with solutions that work.
all was very good! thank you!
Blustered into the room; lacked empathy.
appreciated the follow up written materials I was given
I have been coming to MMC for 66 years. I think that speaks for itself...
no complaints, very positive.
a bit impatient and hurried
Excellent.
Dr. Leu is a wonderful care provided. She has an engaging presence, a pleasant demeanor, and is very attentive.
if I recommend the doctor, I would also mention the wait time
Dr Leu had an excellent recommendation for a problem with my nose that I have implemented and has worked. She also recommended better sun screen that will work while swimming and this also is working well.
In the past I have been a patient of Drs at MMC because I like the personal care. This Dr was knowledgeable but spent most of the time she talked 'to' me typing on her computer. I understand the desire to make notes but this is exactly why I no longer see the Drs I had at Stanford. I came away feeling like the 'notes' were more important than actually having a conversation. I appreciated that she did look at other issues I was facing and helped me with those. At the end of my appointment I did have a little dizziness and the nurse/assistant stayed with me until I was able to leave. There are so many choices for Health Care on the Peninsula, I hope that even though you are now affiliated with Stanford Hospital, MMC would remain committed to the personal approach to care that originally attracted us to your Clinic.
Very thorough, explained everything well and took time to answer questions. Also took into account and knowledgeable about past health concerns & history.
Very positive.
I didn't feel rushed and the Dr. explained in great detail all my different topical ointments, what they are for and how they should be used. I was very happy with the service from both the Dr and her staff.
She took extra time to take care of akeratosis on my cheek.
Great communication skills.
excellent
good
Perfect!
Excellent, thorough provider
Very hard for me to answer some of these questions as this was the first time I have seen Dr. Leu. I appreciate the fact that she squeezed me in for an appointment, but I wasn't very excited about our follow-up conversation. As someone who had just been told they had melanoma, it was not comforting to hear that my concern of having a full-body scan prior to any surgery was neither necessary nor urgent; I beg to differ. However, it all worked out in the end. I only make these comments because a patient who has just been told they have cancer needs a doctor who is open to listening to his or her patient.
Dr. Leu's examination was very thorough.
provider could communicate better. sometimes said things that left me with questions afterwards.
Doctor Lui did a very thorough examination. She is an excellent Doctor!
Good.
Care provider was very hurried.impatient if I asked follow up questions. Just wanted to get on to the next patient, or lunch. All my experiences at M M have felt the same, the provider is very hurried, doesn't ask important questions.it didn't used to be like this.
I was very pleased with the care I received from Dr. Leu, she is knowledgeable and thorough.
Excellent experience with Dr. Leu, she is always on the patients side in trying to do what is best for the patient!
We are so lucky to have Dr. Leu as our Dermatologist! She is very informed and thorough!
I appreciate Dr. Leu being interested in me as a PERSON as well as a patient!

Dr Leu is amazing both in the way she handles conversation, explanation and exam. First rate all of my family goes to her

Not as wonderful as doctors in other clinics I have personally experienced or my daughter has-- still Dr. Leu is a very good doctor even though her patient interaction leaves much to be desired.
My son and I both see the same doctor and I would highly recommend her. She was able to do everything quickly and efficiently. Good thing too cause apparently it was important.

I am delighted with Dr. Leu's kindness, concern, and especially how thorough she is - CRITICAL in a dermatologist doing regular skin checks.
I wish she would give me written instructions instead of only verbal; after I leave, I don't remember everything she told me to do.
Thorough, friendly, took a long time with me.
