Patient Comments (2)

I do not recommend Dr Wuu. His office staff and himself are very unprofessional. His office is outdated. He does not trust his employees. He takes co-payment money himself, and ask staff if they have change from their own pockets. He does not arrive until after 10:30am, but schedules appointments...more

Quick to get in, but there seems to be a reason for that. The doctor just doesn't seem competent to me. More concerned with the billing than anything else. Communication is a chore. Doesn't seem interested in what you have to say. Seems to disregard your opinions.
