Excellent doctor. I have been with him for approximately two years. Dr. Wu actively listens with compassion and asks great questions, helping me think through and understand the holistic drivers of my condition. What is more, I feel he is a partner in helping me manage my health versus a pedagogical/distant clinician; he takes the time to educate. His core principles/philosophy are evident in his approach. As my wellness partner, I am grateful for his skill, compassion, and respect.

Dr Wu is professional and kind. He is a great listener and gives you time to talk and ask any questions you might have. He considers your input when it comes to medications and seems to really care about what is best for you.

Was not a good experience at all. I will not be returning. The word rude does not begin to explain his temperament with me . When a patient visits a doctor it is usually for help and guidance re: an issue but I did not find help or guidance with this doctor at all. I felt far worse when I left his office.

Dr. Wu is attentive, skilfully probing and very professional. He wants to stay informed about my feelings, attitudes, concepts of what is going on with me. He always asks for a prescription and OTC update and if I have noticed feeling any duffer entry since taking something new. What changes I may have made socially, personally, exercise and eating habit changes which may affect my moods. I feel very comfortable in relaxing and speaking honestly with him. I respect Dr. Wu and his counsel.
