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!!

Had full blown RA. Dr Wu found the answer for me and I am now almost pain free. She truly cares for her patients. This is rare in today's world of Insurance

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.
