I am disappointed with this visit. The appointment was rushed and initially Dr. Wu tried to send me away without treatment. The procedure I ended up having was very painful but Dr. Wu didn't seem to notice or care. She was behind schedule and wanted to get things done as quickly as possible without any concern for my comfort level.

Dr. Wu was incredibly friendly, and had great insight into how to manage symptoms - even thinking of workarounds in case her first idea didn't pan out as we hoped. Great experience! One office heads up: if you need to pay with your card for your copay, they will charge a service fee - recommended to bring cash!

Pros: Very thorough in her diagnosis Very quick in her diagnosis Very helpful with tips on how to treat and prevent future problems Very nice Doctor Cons: (Nothing to do with her personal work ethic) The office is small but nice The building she is located in does not reflect her private space. Front staff is very polite however there is very little privacy to talk about personal things in the front area due to small office size. The waiting area is directly in front of the front desk. Happy to have a fix for my problem. Not too bad of a price for out of pocket. Overall 10/10 experience Looking forward to my follow up!

Receptionist wasn't mean but could have been a bit friendlier. Doctor was nice but didn't tell me anything I hadn't heard before, even after I explained that certain things hadn't worked for me and I was still in constant discomfort, she still just recommended those same things- felt like kind of a waste of time.

I can’t say enough about Dr. Wu. I went in to see her for a few different concerns and although most doctors would pick one issue and focus on that, she addressed ALL of my concerns thoroughly and clearly. I didn’t walk out of her office scratching my head wondering what just happened. She is very personable ...zero wait time, and her offices are super clean and stylish! HIGHLY recommended

The service is not as personalized as I expected. The doctor sees other patients at the same at as you, she leaves the room and as a result waiting time increases. I also didn’t feel that she empathizes.

Dr. Wu was attentive and helped convince me to try some medications for a deviated septum, as well as being open to my desire for a surgery. There was no wait, I was seen right after filling in the check-in forms. Her staff was also relaxed and friendly. Would comfortably recommend Dr. Wu over the last ENT I saw.

Dr Wu is fantastic. There was some weird problem with confirming insurance when we arrived, so we were delayed in seeing her - hopefully just a one off thing. But as a doctor she's fantastic.
