excellent diagnostician with great bedside manner
I've been a patient of Dr. Wu's for the past few years, first for psoriatic arthritis and now for fibromyalgia as well. Dr. Wu is an excellent diagnostician. She asks poignant questions and is and spends as much time with a patient as is needed (this does have the downside of her frequently running 15-30 min late if you have a later-in-the-day appointment). She explains things in an easy to understand manner and has a kind bedside manner. I've contacted her and her office via the patient portal on numerous occasions and they always reply promptly and courteously; if Dr. Wu thinks an issue warrants a follow up - either in person or virtual - she and her office staff work to get that scheduled in a timely manner. I have no reservations referring friends to Dr. Wu.

I was a patient years ago and she diagnosed me with fibromyalgia and her receptionist told me I couldn’t see her for 5 months and she doesn’t treat that anymore. My neurologist recommended I see a rheumatologist so I thought she would be more willing to help except put many hurdles in front of me

I was a patient of Dr. Dee Dee Wu for a short period. I was very disappointed that Dr. Wu never called me after I emailed her. In my email, I explained to her that I was in pain and that the pain was getting worse. I needed her help. I strongly advise anyone in pain NOT to seek treatment from her. Her office told me to email her through the MyHSS Message Center. Here is my email to her: "... My lower back, mostly on the right side, is very painful, especially when I wake up in the morning. It remains painful throughout the day. I have had this pain for a long time, but I am more aware of it now and find it more difficult to cope with. On February 24th, I had X-rays of .... Please contact me. Thank you." DR. DEE DEE WU NEVER CALLED ME. I remained in pain.

Dr. Wu is one of the most intelligent and compassionate doctors I have seen throughout a lengthy and complicated medical odyssey... and her treatment was, by far, the best. She took considerable time to understand the issues I was having, identify what was going on, and come up with a plan that worked.

Dr. Wu is by far the best and most caring Dr. I have ever had the pleasure of being treated by. Given that she has left her practice in Fair Lawn NJ and is now affiliated with HSS in Paramus, NJ she is no longer a participating provider with my health insurance plan. As such, I am now forced to find another rheumatologist! Additionally, I was not advised by her new staff that they do not accept my insurance until after I already had two visits with her. Now they want me to pay $700!!

Dr. Wu is the best doctor I have ever experienced. Her knowledge of my medical condition far exceeds any rhumetologist I have ever seen. She spends an appropriate amount of time with you, conducts a physical exam, reviews your history and blood work, while explaining and making adjustments/suggestions as necessary. She provides the BEST care. You never feel rushed. Sadly, her move to the HSS and their arrogance in not accepting most health insurances, is forcing me to find another doctor.
