Dr. Wu is the most compassionate and informative Doctor that I have had. She has always been right on top of my illness during monitoring and treatment. I would highly recommend her. Mine is an illness I will have for the rest of my life and I will hopefully be able to stay with Dr. Wu for the duration. Thank you, Ray

Dr. Wu makes you feel more like a friend than a patient. She answers any and all questions with patience and without indignation, as some doctors are prone to do. She won't keep you waiting nor will she rush through your visit.

Dr. Wu has been taking care of my mom ever since being diagnosed with renal cancer in 2005. My mom is now 83. Dr. Wu has been more than a Dr. to my mom and has see her through countless situations especially in the last year(2019) to present and I am sure she would have not survived if it was not for Dr. Wu's caring, knowledge and compassion. She is a beautiful soul. Brian Yarde son of Mary Rodulfo

I LOVE Dr. Wu. She is extremely personable, caring & down to earth. I also very, very much appreciate how she incorporates eastern & western medicine options into my care. She works so hard & is highly dedicated to her patients & family. I highly recommend her! She's the best & sweetest Dr. I've ever had. You might have to wait awhile sometimes but everyone in her office is pleasant & she's booked solid. Well worth the wait. She really takes her time with her patients. Is very thorough & considerate.

Dr Wu obviously cares deeply about her patients. Tremendous bedside manner as she sits close at eye level. Dr Wu is extremely knowledgeable about her field of practice and does not give quick unthoughtful answers to asked questions. She see her patients as individuals with different sets of needs. Dr is friendly, kind and warm. I would recommend her to any of my loved ones with complete confidence she would do her best and give her all.
