I made my appointment on Zocdoc. The office called me a couple days beforehand, saying they'd neglected to update their appointments and would I mind coming in an hour later than my Z appointment was. I said sure, I could accommodate them. When I arrived, I signed in and was asked to fill out new patient information. I said I'd already done that online on Z, but they said they have to enter the info manually anyway; so I filled out the paperwork again, and luckily I'd brought my list of current meds. Then I waited for an hour and ten minutes. This waiting room was an appointment mill, and I'd seen many come and go while I sat there. At that point I went to the desk and asked whether there'd been a mixup. Did you sign in? Uh, yes. Turns out they'd "put my paperwork aside" and I fell through the cracks. Much apology; they would get me in right away. Well, I was there and I wasn't about to go home. "Right away" was a half-hour later. The tech was aware of what went on with the front desk and she was a sweetheart, apologizing and asking if she could make me comfortable, very solicitous. The doctor then saw me pretty quickly after my pupil dilation took effect. He was rushed but professional. Would I recommend? Not by my experience there. But they really have a busy office, so I expect that all those people couldn't be wrong. Right?
It felt very hurried. My assessment of 20 20 vision was done within 30 seconds. For peri feral vision test the assistant just snapped fingers around my face.
Everyone in the office is friendly and helpful. Wait time was minimal. All procedures were clearly explained and promptly completed.
Todays visit was first time there and everyone was very helpful. I was in and out. Thank you guys! :)
Did not have a good feeling throughout. Dr.'s assistant asked the same series of questions as on a form I just filled out. Long waits before being seen, and after having my eyes dilated, I waited 25 minutes to be seen again after being told it would be ten minutes.
Wait was over 2 hrs- they were short a person and had another filling in... I'm anxious about procedures and not very many things were explained to me.....they were ready to do procedures and as they came near with tools, they said "be still or you might be paralyzed"......
Our visit was great. The person we saw before the doctor examined my son was very good working with children. She put him at ease and did the tough tests rather quickly. Doctor Wu was efficient and comprehensive. I would recommend this doctor based on our visit.
Went to see him since my primary Ophtamalogist takes forever to see him. Very nice doctor and staff. Have a terrible eye infection and they were very thorough. I even received sample eye drops, as well as a savings card for my prescription. Highly considering switching to him as my primary Ophtamalogist.
Very good communicator. Was very friendly with me and took the time to explain to me my condition (developed corneal ulcer from contacts).
Dr. Wu is obviously a consumer advocate. I felt empowered at almost every facet of the office visit and I have medicaid.
the technician did all the pre work and then when the doctor came in it was just fast
Very little waiting. Very courteous and helpful staff.
Everyone was very helpful and very welcoming. Prior to seeing Dr. Wu his assistant went through the preliminary procedures explaining in detail what each procedure was for, as in the vision check. She was very nice and encouraged me to ask if I had any questions. When Dr. Wu came in he had such a pleasant and calming demeanor, putting me at ease immediately. I was there to have him check a growth on my lower eyelid and I was a little apprehensive about the examination. He could not have been nicer and answered all my questions and I was very satisfied.
Long wait. But great doc.
Friendly, thorough, informative, he told me of options for testing and procedures that might benefit my eye health. He was not rushed and took his time explaining things to me.
Dr. P.Wu is an excellent Doctor-very kind and logical explanation of my problem. After I met him, I felt so much comfortable with his comment. Masa Hasegawa
Dr. Phillip Wu is excellent. His team is number one. I thanked GOD and the above for his gift of helping me with my eyes...
Loved his team, they really listened and were quite efficient. Felt very welcome and serviced. The doctor was quick; you could tell he did not want people to wait for long periods of time. Very satisfied.
Very friendly assistants, and the doctor was extremely polite.
His assistant was awesome
Dr Wu is one of the best doctors I ever had. He is very patient. He is an excellent doctor.
Great staff, facilities, and attention to detail!!
My first visit went well. The receptionists were nice and the dr and dr assistant were all very nice and knowledgeable
He was very professional and his staff was friendly.
Well worth the drive from Dundee to Glenview! Dr. Wu gets five stars and two thumbs up from me!
Excellent staff, organized office, nice people.
I like Dr Wu he was thorough and very patient. Will be going back for my next appointment in August.
He was kind, thorough and made sure to spend time answering my questions as well as responding to my concerns/symptoms. The technician completing the interview and preliminary exam was gentle and supportive, providing immediate feedback during each test to make sure I knew how things were going. The front desk staff were friendly, professional, courteous and quick.
All the stef ware nice
I found everyone in his staff to be friendly and helpful I know doctor's can run behind but it is nice to not have to wait a long time.
1st visit to a doctor who actually is concerned about the time spent by his patients. I was taken into the room for my exam within 15 minutes and was immediately tended by the nurse. When she was finished with her part of the exam, she told me that the doctor would be in within 5-10 minutes. It actual happened. what impressed me is the doctor came in my room and introduced himself to me and apologized to me for having me wait and said I'll be back in 5 minutes. Damn when was the last time that ever happened. I'm 59 years old and that has never happened to me. I will switch my whole family to this practice. the other thing that I was impressed with is the attention he and his staff gave to the elderly patients. Some were in pretty bad shape. worth the drive worth the wait. Finally found a keeper and he takes Medicaid.
I thought he was great. Very friendly, prompt and efficient, but definitely answered all my questions and made me feel very comfortable. His nursing staff could be a little more professional (e.g. they came in and out of the exam room without knocking and generally seemed disorganized), however it was not too bad. Glad I found this doctor.
He was wonderful and very professional
Nice guy. Long wait. But than again, they took me in a day earlier than my appointment, which helped, since it was an emergency. I'd recommend him.
Good but requires too many appointments for a minor eye infection.
Prompt and professional!
he was fast, courteous and thorough. answered every question!
First time here and he was great. Took the time to answer all my questions.
He cares about his patients & hes really nice! Also, he's also always there if you ever have questions (:
I showed up early and I was still seen within five minutes of my arrival. Highly recommend!
GGreat!! The doctor was super.nice.to.my little 2 year old son and he.found a problem that the ER didn't! I will always go.to.him for all my kids eyes!
