This will be our last appt with Dr. Wu. We brought our child there, to confirm if she has a stigmatism.They put eye drops into her eyes to dilate them for the procedure, which made her cry, as I'm sure it would any other child. Dr. Wu grew impatient, annoyed & frustrated that she was crying & said, "Oh my God" as if her demeanor was going to help the situation; it only made matters worse. If she can't understand emotions, she shouldn't be in pediatrics or work with people.

Our initial visit with Dr. Wu was great. She was informative and attentive to our two small children, who have some intense eye issues. I left feeling confident that we had finally found the doctor to help us on this journey. Each subsequent visit has gotten worse. She barely interacts with us and when she does she is abrasive to the children and very condescending. We have a great relationship with Children's, as both of our kids have required special care, but we won't continue with Dr. Wu

Dr. Wu was one of the best eye doctors I've seen. I was given her name by Dr. Robert Petersen. Probably one that I would recommend to any pediatric patient needing an opinion on their eyes.
