What People Say About Dr. Peter Wu, MD
Reply
Does not answer questions. Tells me to increase meds without altering the prescription and tells me to exercise more with no pain relief. Orders test but never reviews the results with me. If you are interested in being involved in your own care do not see this doctor.
