Dr. Au is very pleasant person. She is very knowledgeable in her field. She listens closely to my health problems and offers solutions to them. She is very caring and considerate unlike other doctors who will not consider to help you right away if you presented a couple of problems coz they will tell you to come back some other time. This kind of attitude is a downside especially if the patient is working and needs to take time off from work. She is NOT the kind of doctor who sits with the patient and talk for a few minutes then look at their watch and start hurrying up to dismiss you.Thanks for giving me the opportunity to write down what I feel for my PCP Dr. Denise Au.

Doctor Au spent time with me asking many questions and listening to my reply's. She took time for my questions too. She had me change into a gown and examined me.
