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 and he 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.

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 you feel 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 reflex when 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 wait time for my appointment was not long at all. By the time I completed my patient intake forms, I was called in for my eye exams. All exams were performed pretty quickly/efficiently and I was done in a reasonable amount of time. After my exams, Dr. Wu discussed my results with me and made recommendations. I also saw Dr. Wu briefly before my eye exams and he was able to answer all of my questions. Dr. Wu has a dry sense of humor, which is fine, because I am the same way. Prices weren't outrageous.

The doctor didn't let me feel he cared about my questions. I asked couple of times that how to prevent and take care my eyes, he finally answered me after gave me the prescription. And he didn't give me the instruction how to use the eye drops. Awful experience!

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.

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 PD Measure. 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 gave me 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, what are the tests for and what the eye drops are for. I would definitely avoid coming again!

Easy, available appointments, but expect a wait of about 45 minutes before you are seen. Dr. Wu was cordial, a bit cocky, but knowledgeable. Will be following up in a few weeks, so hopefully my eyes will get better by then with eye drops he prescribed.

He's a nice doctor. However, I expected more mostly, after reading all the reviews. People in his office are nice too. Although, I couldn't understand them at times, but I'd still make another appointment because my first experience wasn't too bad. The office needs more waiting chairs though.
