Professional Statement

Dr. Wu completed his fellowship at SUNY-Downstate in Brooklyn and is Board Certified in Adult and Pediatric Allergy and Immunology, as well as Internal Medicine. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Michigan, before attending medical school at Wayne State University. Afterwards he completed his residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Massachusetts, before starting his Allergy and Immunology fellowship. Since fellowship, Dr. Wu has remained active in the Allergy and Immunology training program at SUNY-Downstate, and is also an active staff member at Richmond University Medical Center as well as Staten Island University Hospital. Due in part to his own food allergies, Dr. Wu has a strong interest in food allergy diagnosis, management and treatment, as well as asthma, which drew him into the field of allergy in the beginning. He also has a strong interest in complementary and alternative medicine in combination with traditional medicine. Before attending medical school, he conducted research with the National Institutes of Health, at the University of Michigan's Complementary and Alternative Medicine Research Center. During his fellowship, he continued his work in studying green tea extract and its' effects on allergies, as well as resident physician education, and presented his work at national meetings for the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology and the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology. With this background, Dr. Wu is very interested in possible nutritional augmentation and herbal therapies for asthma and food allergies in combination with the latest guidelines for quality medical care. He also loves to educate his patients on their conditions, and works with them to provide the best possible customized care for each patient. Dr. Wu lives on Staten Island with his wife, and in his spare time he enjoys tinkering with the latest technologies.

I enjoyed Dr. ShuYung's professionalism and knowledge on my issues with asthma and allergies. Although I have to say he is not very personable, and often times sounds like he's reading from a script. Sometimes his responses to my questions came off as condescending, as I am genuinely curious and unaware of these answers I was talked to in a "duhhh" kind of sense. I would recommend him though, as I believe he knows his stuff.

The front office was super sweet and made me feel comfortable. I arrived 30 minutes early because I knew I'd be filling out paperwork as a new patient. I was seen immediately after I filled out my appointment about 10 minutes before I was scheduled! Dr. Wu was pleasant, heard my history and answered my questions. His diagnosis, while inconclusive, seemed fairly plausible and he seemed willing to help me figure out my situation. He did make a comment that I found to be slightly offensive which does make me believe he needs to work on his interpersonal skills. I've only had one encounter with him so we'll see how the next appointment goes.

Dr Wu did a great job of listening and strategizing to find solutions to address my issue, and was able to address testing requests that came up during my appointment. He spent a long time talking with me and I did not feel rushed. I was an especially difficult patient to deal with because the medications I have long relied upon are no longer manufactured (in this country anyway), and I was less than cheerful at the prospect of yet another trial and error process; three cheers for Dr. Wu!

Dr. Wu listened to all my of symptoms throughly before diagnosing me, which I appreciated because he really wanted to get to the root of what was wrong opposed to just writing me a prescription to be on my way. He seemed very knowledgeable in his profession and I am looking forward to my next visit with him in 2 weeks.

The receptionist whom is always the first encounter we have at any office especially a doctor's office had a very helpful and welcoming manner. I liked her alot because she made me feel at ease right away & it was my first visit. Dr. Wu was just as warm and I felt listened to and he truly gave me his attention. I felt heard and that is a very important trait for any doctor. Patients are folks who don't want to go see a doctor. If they are there it's because they have to be. If a doctor is distracted or annoyed or short with us it is a turn off. Thank goodness Dr. Wu & his receptionist are professional, warm & Understand that.

I'm very glad that Dr. Wu listened to my concerns about repeated corticosteroid usage, in contrast to some of the doctors I've seen in the past who needlessly "mansplain" my conditions and treatment options. He appeared to respect my knowledge of my own issues and was straightforward in our conversation. There's no nurse in the Bay Ridge location so be aware that while you'll get plenty of face time, he may have to dip out to check up on other patients. He's very nice about this and it didn't strike me as rude.

There was an issue with my insurance but the staff was on top of it and they got me in to see the doctor!! I selected this doctor based on his background and previous research, so I was happy to speak with him. I was given a prescription to try and I will be back to see him in 1 week. I like that he's looking deeper into the issue and didn't just give me the allergy test right away

He was great. Shots are shots I think across the board, so if they work for you they work, if they don't, they don't. They didn't cure me, but I didn't finish my treatment either.I went for 6 months, and it definitely helped!
