Dr. Wu and The Sprintz Center are terrible. It feels like they're just trying to cram in as many people as possible. The last couple visits I haven't even seen the doctor, just the PA (though charged for seeing the doctor) which is incredibly frustrating as my condition is deteriorating and the PA cannot answer even the most basic questions I have. It sucks. If you can avoid him and his practice, definitely steer clear.
