“The perfect blend of professional and friendly. He definitely makes you feel 100% comfortable and is also very knowledgeable. Couldnt ask for anything more.”

“Dr. Fu displays concern and confidence that is reassuring and well earned. He has performed bicep tendon surgery on me in the past that turned out very well. I am seeing him now to evaluate wrist issues and am grateful he is available both for this and for advice with other orthopedic problems. I trust him.”
– Victor Q.
“Could not have been better. Dr. Fu was patient, compassionate, and explained all well.”
– Laine J.
“Dr. Fu had such a great demeanor with me, my husband and my son who he was evaluating as did the PA who came in first. They were both thorough and took their time. Dr. Fu explained everything and directed comments and questions to my son, which I appreciated. Truly a great experience today.”

“He was great! Nothing more to say.”
– Cathy S.
“My 5-year old broke her arm on a Friday night, and we were referred to Sports Medicine North when I made the appointment I got told it would be with Dr. Fu — being a mother and your child hurting themselves, especially breaking their arm. This the first time something like this had ever happened, I was very nervous. When Dr. Fu entered the room, he greeted all of us, but more importantly, my daughter, the 5-year-old patient. Dr. Fu was filled with high-fives and made my daughter think she was playing a game with him when he was testing her!! Dr. Fu had an excellent bedside manner, made sure I was comfortable with my daughters' treatment she was receiving and would explain as to why he was doing something. I cannot thank him, and the office enough, and I would highly recommend Dr. Fu to anyone, especially if you have kids. I also wanted to say that the young lady who does the casting in the Cast Room as well. She is fantastic, my daughter really liked her, and she was always great with her, again making my daughter feel comfortable.”

“My experience with Doctor Fu was positive. In contrast to three other providers that I had previously had. I felt listened to. His way of interacting is warm and genuine. He explained what to expect during my Occupational Therapy which a prior doctor had neglected to do. Dr. Fu goes beyond just stating what the diagnosis and treatment are he engages you in a dialogue. I left the office feeling happy and relieved that I had found an excellent doctor that had shown me care and respect. I am very grateful to Amy for having referred me to him. I would wholeheartedly recommend him.”

“After enduring what I considered to be a life-changing and career-ending accident at work, Dr. Fu and the staff at SMN had me back to work (albeit light duty & a lot of office work!) only 40 days after my accident and surgery. Dr. Fu and his staff have been a pleasure to deal with, from the crash to the operation to the physical therapy that I’m involved with now. I would recommend Dr. Fu and Sports Medicine North to anyone who wants to deal with the best surgeon and physical therapy team on the North Shore!!”
– Archie M.
“Staff is always friendly and fast getting me to see Dr. Fu. Dr. Fu is fantastic getting to the point of why I’m there. He has done surgery on the left hand and will be doing same on the right side.”
– Michael P.
“I was injured, and Dr. Fu did what was necessary for treating my injury to make it the best it could be. Pleasant to talk to listen well and I believe he understood what I was explaining to him because the outcome was successful. Also, the PA's were very helpful and were A+ in working with me. I would not hesitate to go back to them if ever a situation arises.”
– Leo G.
“I had an elbow, and wrist carpal tunnel surgery on both arms and I was very delighted with the results. I have no numbness in either hand and or fingers.”
– Steven C.
“After x-rays, Dr. Fu advised that my fractured toes were healing very well and that it might take up to a year to completely heal. Two months prior a propane tank rolled out of the back of my SUV onto my toes. A month after my visit, my toes are fine. He also told me that they may never look as they did before the accident apparently, they may not regain their normal color or size. This is reassuring, knowing that how they look now is the new normal and I don't have to wait for changes to come.”
– Pam S.
“Dr. Fu is magnificent. He is gentle, kind, and spends as much time as you need him during your appointments. His surgical skills are impeccable. The scarring is minimal. He is a physician who is happy to see you, remembers everything about you, and always sends you off with kindness and a full understanding of your injury and treatment plan.”

I cannot stress how wonderful he was during this not so wonderful experience!”

I'm an active guy (mountain biking, motocross, hockey) and his number one goal has always been to return me to my active life, not to steer me away from it. Both times he got me up and going with minimal impact on my life.”
– Marc S.
