did not finish up with me before he went to another patient so I had to wait until he was done with the that patient before he came in and finished up with me.

*Dr. Xu was very cordial as well as attentive. He was very helpful in explaining my diagnosis through x-ray, MRI, pamphlets, and modules. He will be doing my upcoming surgery.
