Dr. Wu's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Wu "I grew up in Connecticut, Japan, and Missouri, the youngest of four children. My parents were academics in art history, botany and writing. I got my undergraduate degree at Harvard College studying social anthropology, with no plans to go into medicine. A few years later when it became obvious that I needed to study medicine, I was fortunate to attend the University of Washington. This is where I did my pre-medical work, medical school and residency in family medicine. After residency, I joined the Public Health Service and worked on the Navajo Reservation in Shiprock, New Mexico for five wonderful years with great patients, colleagues, mentors and friends. I returned to the Pacific Northwest in 1996 to join North Sound Family Medicine. Throughout my training and career in medicine I have been very fortunate to work with brilliant, hardworking teams. I can say without reservation that the team of North Sound Family Medicine and Family Care Network is the best yet. My approach to care is simple. I want every part of my patient's care to be as I would want it for my own family. Outside the office, I serve wtih the Chuckanut Health Foundation and Mount Baker Ski Patrol. My immediate family includes my wife and two daughters, both now out of the nest. In my free time I walk, run, hike, ski, paddle, climb, bike, fish, read, play guitar, break things, fix things, break them again, write, do laundry, study evolution and spend time with friends and family. Favorite quote: "Whenever you laugh, gladness spreads like the ripples in a pond." – Norton Juster (The Phantom Tollbooth)"
