Arrived earlier than my set appointment time and had my initial tests start early. Dr. Wu and staff were very friendly and answered all questions I had about tests or provided helpful details of said tests. Would definitely recommend friendsand family to book an appointment with Dr. Wu on Zocdoc!

Overcrowded. Assistants inside the office do not give clear instructions on what the patient needs to do when they perform your automated vision exams and hand over the results to the Dr. The Dr's bedside manner was ok, I didn't feelhe was very thorough and as a result, I have not returned.

The 1st visit I was waiting for 2.5 hours to see the Dr. Alexander Wu, then finally when I got to see the Dr., he only had time to check on my eye for 5 minutes and didn't say too much,didn't give good advices because the front desk obviously overbooked the appointments so he had no time to check carefully what's wrong with my eye! That was 6 months ago and my eye still have problems now! Going back this office, this time I changed my appointment to Dr. Chia-Der Wu, who is Alexander's father. This time, after I checked in and had been waiting for an hour, suddenly the two old ladies of the front desk told me that I should come back another day because they were fully booked with very bad attitudes even though that was their fault. If they overbooked the appointments they really should let patients know about that, they should tell me before I made the trip to their office so I didn't have to waste half of my day for nothing! They have no shame in disrespecting peoples time. The front desk were really unprofessional, disgusting, horrible and they could care less about the patient!!!

Staff is always friendly. Already accustomed to the wait time to be longer than the actual appointment. It was only an annual check up anyway. NO food and drink allowed inside. Bring headphones and listen to music while waiting.

Wait times are horrible regardless of appointment as they always seem to overbook. Be prepared to wait at least an hour to see the doctor unless you are lucky. Seemed more concerned about rushing me out of the exam room andto have me book a follow up appointment in two weeks than explaining treatment/diagnosis.

Dr. Alexander Wu is a very skilled eye surgeon. He has the latest testing and treating equipment. His office is busy - a sign he is in high demand - and is very well run. He is someone you can trustyour vision to. Staff is very professional. Highly recommended.

As usual the office of Dr Wu is very well staffed and organized. The biggest advantage with this office is that all tests are done on site. I saw Dr Wu 2 times between test plus a 3rd time after thelast test for my results. Can highly recommend Dr Wu and his office.

The only thing that was annoying was dealing with the staffs at the front desk. They were not exactly professional. I had asked one simple question 3x at the front desk and they all ignored me which is quite rude. Otherthan that, my overall experience was good and I would recommend Dr. Wu and his team to a friend!

My older brother with special needs had a cataract in his left eye so I had made a appointment with Dr. Wu. Due to my brother's diagnoses of severe mental retardation and cerebral palsy, medical related appointments are extremely difficult andhe usually gets frustrated before the end of the session. Dr. Wu was very helpful and understanding of my brother's situation and remained professional throughout the appointment. He even said Bye to my brother at the end of the appointment (most usually ignore him since he's non-verbal). I was given a referral to a reputable specialty hospital in the area that was well suited to my brother's needs. I highly recommend Dr. Wu for patients looking for an opthalmologist.

He was a little impatient explaining about how I should move for the eye exam. I'm not sure whether it was because I couldn't hear him clearly. Other than that, he seemed professional.

This was my second time I visited Dr. Wu. Both time he show excellent patient skills and explain all procedures so you understand. I have many medical problems and he asks questions very discrete and in a professional way so youfeel very comfortable to talk to him about very personal medical issues. He also takes time so you never feel stressed during your visit.

The wait time was not too much for a first time patient but the doctor was a bit rude and stand-offish towards me. I don't know why he couldn't be nicer while I was blinking because that is a natural reflexwhen something is too close to your eyeball! he did do the necessary tests and I think I will not go back to him because I have come across nicer eye doctors.

The people who check you in are so rude. They barely speak English. I waited 2 hours. What's the point of having an appointment? A lot of people already waiting. I asked for my prescription so unprofessional. Never gave my PDMeasure. I needed it to order my glasses. So I called them because I needed the measure, kept my on hold for hours. This happened 3 more times. Never got it till this day. It's been over a month and I still can't order my glasses.

Wait is typical of any Chinatown-based doctor (especially for a popular doctor), which is at least 30-45 minutes IF you have an appointment. This is the reality but does that make it acceptable? Probably not. Dr. Wu appears confident and gaveme a clear diagnosis with a promising intervention. I suppose that comes naturally with his "formidable intellect." Seriously, did he write that about himself? Whether his treatment will resolve my eye issues remain to be seen but I have high hopes.

Waited almost two hours and got treated badly. Very impatient doctor. Didnt want to explain anything. Just sent you to do a bunch of tests and gave some eye drops. Didn't even bother to explain what's wrong with my eyes, whatare the tests for and what the eye drops are for. I would definitely avoid coming again!
