What Our Patients Are Saying

Alan Fossa
Talking about Christopher Lau, M.D.

"Great doctors, great nurses, great staff…simply a wonderful hospital. My consultation with Dr. Lau was very helpful and informative. He was very thoughtful, measured and careful in his evaluation. He followed up within the next 24 hours, calling me personally with more insight and recommendations after consulting with his associates regarding the best way to proceed with my medical needs. He is a wonderfully kind, gentle, and caring doctor, truly an exemplar of his chosen profession."
