I needed acupuncture and my insurance would only pay for it if performed by an MD. I found Dr. Wu. She is now also my primary doc. I like that she is willing to discuss traditional western medical methods and alternative treatments. She has very broad knowledge, is attentive and thorough.

Dr. Wu is an extremely kind, professional and thorough physician. I’m always seen very quickly and all of my issues are addressed. She also does acupuncture which I think is so incredible to balance that form of healthcare with western medicine. I’m not usually one to write reviews on any website, but I have only good things to say about Dr. Wu and I wanted people to know how fantastic she is!
