Dr Wu is awesome. He was recommended to me by another ENT to do my surgery which had been already canceled and rescheduled 3 times by Cedars Sinai due to Covid closures. Because of his strong relationship with Cedars he was able to get me in for surgery within two weeks from my first appointment. My former doctor was not able to lock a date with the hospital in a timely manner, which is why she suggested switching to Dr Wu. He performed a Septoplasty and Sphenoidotomy 2 weeks ago. I can now breathe through my nose, which is amazing!

Dr. Wu was fantastic from the moment I met him through the decision to have the surgery, the pre-op and post-op care has been great and I couldn't recommend him and his office more highly.

Doctor Wu performed a long postponed surgery to remove nasal polyps caused by allergies. Surgery and recovery have gone great. A week after surgery I am breathing so much better. Breathing passages are still not perfectly clear so I'm hoping this is due to inflammation and post surgery discharge and will improve with time.

After years of dealing with facial pain and dental infections, I was finally referred to Dr. Wu, who recommended sinus surgery. I only wish I had seen him much sooner! He is extraordinarily skilled as a physician, and he is personally warm and caring as well. His whole team is great! I enthusiastically recommend Dr. Wu without hesitation.

I had severe sinus infections/blockage for years and was nervous about surgery. Dr Wu did a great job and now, a year on, I have been infection free! Very happy with the results.

I never had better ENT doctor like DR Wu . This is the real doctor . Super talented and he knows that doctor should care about his patient and he does . I did sinus and deviated septum surgery with him and he took care of my problem and he also noticed the problem with my nose cartilage wall and he recommended the solution for men and referred me to another good cosmetic doctor to help me getting the missing cartilage . Love doctor WU

My experience with Dr. Wu was ridiculous. I was referred to him by my primary care physician due to chronic ear aches. He was running 40 minutes behind schedule, spent 5 minutes with me, only to say you have TMJ and I don't handle that - talk to your dentist. I then get a $400 bill! Are you kidding me!

We are deeply grateful for the treatment my husband received by Dr. Wu. He is very knowledgeable in his field. He is an excellent surgeon & cares about his patients. You cannot get anyone better than Dr. Wu. He listens to you. He takes time & explains your condition with a suggested treatment. He understands the vital importance of giving excellent customer service and displays professionalism, warm "bedside" manner, thoroughness, caring & compassion. Office staff is excellent too.

Dr. Wu fixed my tear duct! I have had months of constant tearing out of my eye, and my eye doctor diagnosed me with a blocked tear duct. Just had my first postop appointment and I'm already not tearing. Can't say enough good things about Dr. Wu. He listened to me and made me feel comfortable from the first time I met him. Thanks, Dr. Wu!
