Dr. Wu has given me a colonoscopy 3 or 4 times. I have not had a bad experience. The staff was great. I would agree with all the patients who gave him 5 stars.

My experience was wonderful. I found Dr. Baldwin to be very professional and light hearted. He and his staff made me feel very welcomed and very secure, they answered all my questions and eased all my fears! I hope He is still around for my next Colonscopy in 10 yrs.! Thanks, CT
