First off, be ready to spend 550.00 just to see Dr. Wu. Then he will have you go and spend another 1300.00 on tests to prove that you have a problem. So it's about 700.00 for a nerve test, about 250.00 for an MRI, and 100.00 plus for blood tests. So again, it will be 2100.00 to prove that you need pain medication. Then 120.00 a month thereafter. And another 1000.00 for shots in the back that don't work. He thought I was poor and said that he didn't think I could afford the tests. He was wrong. So I basically invested 3000.00 into this doctor trying to find pain relief and he will only prescribe 1 pill for day 1 pill night. All of these drug and fake shot doctors are the same. Most will have you do tests with other doctors they know so that they can share the money. All this time the Cheyanne office is really nice, but the office staff are complete imbeciles. They are rude, ignorant and condescending. You invest time and money to find pain relief and you get none. None

Dr Wu is a horrible Dr. He treated my mother so badly. He wouldn't even listen to an elderly patient. He wasn't interested in helping her if she didn't want a procedure. Obviously, they only care about how much money they can make from you and not helping you. There are better Drs

This dr is a horrible dr. I'm glad I'm w/ a new pain doc. I never had any problems before with Drs. This guy is unprofessional, rude and without any compassion but they will write you a prescription without even seeing a dr on more then 1 occasion. The Secretary will just give u rx . All they want is ur money & don't care. I changed Drs & the new dr did new xrays, I found I had a lot more spinal issues then I thought. Dr is very negligent. I'm in the medical field & I saw a lot of errors. Scary

I have been a patient of Dr. Wu for 3 years. He always takes the time to listen and explain. Prior to Dr. Wu I saw several other Doctors for my back pain. The others were either pushing pain pills, rushing through the doctor visits, not listening, or pushing surgery. I recommend Dr. Wu to anyone who truly wants a good Doctor who is thorough, caring, patient, honest and does not perform unnecessary procedures.

I’ve gone to Dr. Wu for my chronic neck pain and have always been very satisfied with the care and attention that I have received. Dr. Wu was patient and has always been helpful. I was also impressed with their nice facility and the caring staff and friendly can-do attitude and smiles. Honestly, I was skeptical because the bad reviews below, but after my first consultation with Dr. Wu, I was truly surprised how inaccurate these reviews are.

I will never see this Dr again. He treated my husband very poorly. I found a much better Dr and one who isn't pushing shots. He was breaking the law also won prescriptions I will find out and be back

The office staff was rude. Wouldn't explain a billing question. Another patient was talking about how they treat you like a druggie and they do. This Dr is rude, arrogant, they just want you to do injections because that's where they make their money. They don't care at all about you. My wife is a nurse & friends with one of the PA that worked here before(5 were fired for not pushing injections)and they said how horrible they are. They don't care about you and will talk bad about the patients
