I have been seeing Dr Wu since he started here with another practice and have stayed with him since. He is a really good listener and he explains things well. The practice became busy and I saw his new PA Craig for an illness and he was great. Dr Wu has himself a good partner in Craig. I would not go anywhere else for my medical care.

Dr Wu was great 1st visit but had to wait 45 min. On 2nd visit, a Fri, his young, crass, staff, who have no business being in health care field, wouldn't allow my husband to see Dr because he was 19 min late! I had called to say my ill, wheelchair bound husband had to urinate so we'd be a few min late. I was told at 3:19 he was too late, Dr wouldn't see him & told us Go to Urgent Care. 24 days later, my husband died from the very thing he tried to see Dr Wu for..those girls need to be fired!!

Dr. Wu was professional, friendly and knowledgeable addressing my knee injury. From the consultation and a follow up, you can tell that he wants the best recovery possible for his patients. I was highly satisfied with my experience.

I sprained my ankle severely to the point that the pain was unbearable. I went into Dr.Wu's office and he did some tests to see how bad the injury was. After that day visiting Dr.Wu my ankle has been much better, I will continue to see Dr.Wu as he took the time to explain everything to me and made me feel very comfortable knowing that it would get better which it did.

Dr. Wu was professional and respectful. He was very patient and addressed my injury and outlined options for my recovery. Great experience.

Dr Wu has been a great provider since our very first day. He provides care without judgement and spends time with me to understand what my options are and allows me to provide input into what direction to pursue my health goals. I recommend him to all my friends, colleagues and family.

After viewing my back x-ray, Dr. Wu said I was not a candidate for back surgey. He recommended physical therapy. After 3 months of physical therapy I was not getting better. At that point I sought a 2nd opinion, found out I had 3 severely damaged discs/vertebra and underwent a 6 hour surgery by a top notch surgeon in Palm Springs - Dr. Etebar. Today (one year later) I am doing much better, and should be able to golf again in 6 months - seek a 2nd opinion!!!
