I had the worst experience with dr. Chau. He wouldn’t provide thorough answers on meds he was advising I had to stop, he was rude and argumentative and left me in tears while telling me he didn’t have time for me and opened his door for me to vacate. I ended up in the GM of WOLLONGONG private’s office crying and was able to get more info from him then dr Chau. I have never experienced someone so awful, rude and mean. Going through a surgery such as a gastric sleeve is such a huge mental and physical shift and having a surgeon be so rude left me feeling so helpless. Thankfully David crowe from WOLLONGONG private set up several other surgeons to do consults for me so I could see who was a better fit, and I ended up with dr budak who went above and beyond to discuss my overall Health needs and even speak to my other specialists about long term changes and care... at the end of the day that’s how it should done, holistically and reviewing overall health not just one small portion! I would never recommend anyone to have surgery with dr Chau, cheaper is not always better and I’ve heard so many bad reviews on recovery from patients who did proceed with me and lack of post operative care as he is not local and only visits fortnightly for his surgeries and consults.
