I have the utmost trust in, and respect for Dr. Xu. He is upbeat, informative, and does a good examination. He is a good listener. I have been to him more than once and I am always satisfied with his care and that of his staff.

Very compassionate and encouraging during my injury that resulted in a very successful recovery. Also instructive about diagnosing and treating any pain not directly related to his specialty.

Dr. XU operated on me when I had an accident in 2015 and another accident related time later that year. I appreciated it when he refferd me to a trama specialist for additional treatment. After a total of 7 operations I can now walk very well.
