Dr. David Woo, MD

Psychiatrist

Professional statement

*PLEASE SELECT THE OPTION "I'll choose my insurance later" or "I'm paying for myself", SO THAT I CAN VERIFY YOUR INSURANCE AFTER YOU HAVE SUBMITTED YOUR APPOINTMENT REQUEST. I have been in private practice since 2002, with my greatest interest being patients with depression, anxiety, and obsessive compulsive disorder. I offer transcranial magnetic stimulation (using the Neurostar TMS system) in addition to medication management and psychotherapy. I value collaborating with physicians and therapists, as I believe that a person's needs are best understood from multiple perspectives. I have worked at Beth Israel Medical Center in Manhattan for many years and am now in full private practice. My medical degree is from Albert Einstein Medical School and my undergraduate degree from Cornell University. Please note: I can set up in-network financial arrangements with most insurance companies for transcranial magnetic stimulation if you qualify for the treatment. Email me at dwoo@psychmd.org for any questions.

At my first appointment, Dr. Woo was incredibly thorough -- listening to my litany of anxieties, asking about my previous experiences with treatment, discussing the merits and side effects of various potential medications, and bringingup additional strategies involving exercise, nutrition, sleep, and the like. By the end of the session, I felt very well informed, as well as listened to. I left feeling surprisingly optimistic, with less anxiety about my condition, and a good understanding of what we are planning to try and what its potential benefits and side effects might be. I should add that Dr. Woo is easy to interact with -- there was no wait time at his office, we emailed in advance of my intake so he could learn some basics about me, and we emailed again that night about the plan of treatment. Overall, so far, Dr. Woo's patience, knowledge, and attention are excellent.

I have seen Dr. Woo several times and always find him thoughtful, caring and helpful. He takes the time to talk about the issues and is a good listener. I also appreciate his thorough explanation of how different medications could work. I only wish he accepted my insurance.

Dr. Woo was very professional, knowledgeable and prompt. He really listened to me and I feel he best understood my needs. Best doctor's appointment (all fields) in a long time. Also, he followed through when he said he would follow up and when as well. Thank you Dr. Woo.

Dr. Woo is compassionate, understanding, and attentive. He really works to address your personal needs and troubleshoot whatever problems you are having. Additionally, when I told him I didn't like a certain medication, he would honor mywishes and let me try something new. Unlike many of my other doctors who would completely disregard my adverse reactions and personal opinion. I would absolutely recommend him 100%.

I haven't seen him in a while but I can tell you that had I not moved, I would still be going to him. He is what a doctor should be, especially a psychiatrist. The appointments were 15 minutes, but itfelt like longer because Dr. Woo is extremely insightful, he doesn't just acknowledge a concern, he explores it fully. He educates about symptoms, treatment options and medications. He very much normalizes whatever is happening so that you get a sense that someone believes in you, that you aren't "crazy." When something isn't working, he believes you versus making you feel as if the issue were your fault. He also remembers details so every time you see him a bulk of the appointment is not taken up with the doctor simply trying to remember who you are. Dr. Woo remembers you and I truly believe this quality, as well as the ones noted above, are what keep his clients coming to him. His dynamic is what I seek when I look for new doctors now. He is the standard I set for them. I am truly grateful to him and would recommend him with the utmost confidence in his skillset.

Dr. Woo was a great listener, however, he kept insisting on prescribing pills for a diagnosis he didn't fully explain the grounds of (including signs I show) and based it on what I told him during my childhood. His diagnosis waspretty quick, yet poor -- I'm not sure if he was even confident in coming to a conclusion that I had this certain condition and almost immediately suggested the use of drugs.

Dr. Woo is by far the best psychiatrist I've had. He is very attentive and seems to genuinely care. As opposed to other psychiatrists I've seen, he actually takes his time to listen and provide feedback given the information I provide.Other psychiatrists I've seen last no more than 15 minutes in a session. Dr. Woo however, takes up the whole time slot (usually 30-45 minutes). He is also very up to date with technology which is really helpful (i.e. he confirms appointments via email and fills out forms electronically when possible).

Dr Woo has been an excellent psychiatrist for me. He is sensitive, respectfully, intelligent, and experienced. I appreciate his tech savvy nature. He's very responsive via email, easy to book appointments with, and accepts credit cards forco-pays. Interestingly, I like the decor of his office, which helps when talking about sensitive subjects.

I was a patient of Dr. Woo's for 4 years. He was wonderful and even after my insurance no longer covered my visits with him, I still saw him. I only left because I moved to Boston. He was helpful withmedication, understanding, and easy to talk to. He was also really great with email and responded promptly to all my questions! This was a HUGE plus for me. I hope I can find someone like Dr. Woo in my new city! I recommend him to anyone!

Dr. Woo was phenomenal. He spent extra time getting to know my entire background and went out of his way to be detailed and thorough. He was kind, patient, and listened to my concerns regarding previous medications. I have seen manydoctors (mainly because my insurance changed several times and there was no overlap), and he is by far one of the best.

Exactly the kind of dr i needed to see. He actually thinks about the rx he writes as opposed to so many rx-mills where you walk in and they mumble "you ok?" And then hand you a script. Thats not healthcare.I'm excited and optimistic about my treatment after only 1 session. I want to get better, not just maintain misery forever. He's the doc to make that happen. Very happy.
