prostate cancer diagnosis and referral

I took my brother, who has mental issues to Dr. Kau after an abnormal PSA test. Dr. Kau did a biopsy and determined that he had cancer in several parts of his prostrate. He referred us to USC cancer hospital specifically to Dr. Monish Aron. The care and treatment at USC was beyond excellent. If not for Dr Kau's referral we would have been at a loss. Long story short a good Dr knows where to send people if need be. You can never go wrong with Dr. Kau and his referral to USC. Thanks again....

Great Experience

Although very busy, Dr. Kau spent 30 minutes explaining the surgery for kidney stones I needed.  His staff was excellent and helped me get Cat Scan and surgery scheduled quickly even with HMO. Surgery at hospital went excellent and I am cured. I recommend seeing him!

I have seen the doctor for more than 5 visits over the past year, and my husband has seen him at least 3 times as well. In our experience, the office is professional & courteous, and never have we seen or experienced any issues with privacy. We have been very happy with our care.

Would not recommend

We came here for a diagnosis and the Dr did not spend more than 5 min talking to us during the visits we had. During the first appt, we waited for a long stretch of time to see him, and when we saw him, he just sat across from us at his computer and left the door wide open while he discussed our issue. During the second appt, he did not come into the room where we were waiting and instead, just stood at the doorway with the door open while discussing our medical results. No privacy whatsoever and aside from the first appt where he sat behind his computer talking briefly to us, on all subsequent visits, he just stood at the door, as if he wanted to rush us out and didn't want to spend any time explaining anything to us. We felt he recommended some extra tests that weren't necessary because the prior tests he ordered already provided the info needed. However, it seemed he ordered the tests just so he could charge for the procedures. Overall, poor bedside manner and never spent the time listening to us or explaining the procedures or anything to us. We didn't get the sense he cared at all about the well being of the patient. Would not recommend.
