Verified Patient Reviews
I waited for an hour and 15 min before the doc saw me which was real frustrating and a ton of people were in the waiting room, they need to not overbook appt slots like that. But doctor himself was very smart and helpful.
Dr. Wu and his staff were very knowledgeable and polite. He took the time to thoroughly explain what my options were and it was only my first visit. He was also nice enough to see me without an appointment. I would fully recommend him to anyone.
Dr. Wu really took the time to listen, understand, and evaluate my symptoms. His approach was methodical and he clearly explained his reasoning and how he came to a particular diagnosis. Very knowledgeable, easy-going, and clearly loves what he does! Paula and the office staff were also very patient and helpful, especially with tricky insurance policies! Thank you for the great experience!
Very pleased with the visit! There was about a 40 minute wait, but once it was my turn, I absolutely understood why - a very thorough consultation. I was seen by Mary the nurse practitioner, and she was absolutely great! Very friendly but professional, had a great bedside manner, and was extremely thorough. I've had an ongoing issue for over 2 months so I've seen a multitude of other specialists and providers. For the first time since my symptoms all started, I truly feel like I'm on the right path to getting better. Having never been this ill before, the whole journey so far has been scary to say the least. Even as a nurse myself, I've been overwhelmed being on the patient end, so I really appreciated how Mary took her time to really examine and explain everything to me. You can tell everyone in the office really cares and though it's only my 1st visit, I highly recommend Mary and this practice.
Dr. Wu is amazing! My son is actually looking forward to getting weekly allergy shots from him. He explains everything very clearly and definitely understands his specialty.
he is a very good doctor with great bedside manner.
Wonderful, knowledgeable, and friendly Doctor. Front desk staff also extremely professional and kind.
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.
Kind and knowledgeable . Highly recommended
I liked him a lot he really took his time to listen to my concerns and will work with me to make me feel better
I was very impressed. The staff is very nice and professional. The doctor listened to me and got right to the point with excellent advice. Very clean office as well.
Unbelievable we were leaving for a vacation out side USA. Got an appointment same day. Dr. Wu. Eliminated a lot of my fears. Thank you Doc. Leslie
I actually think the office was great, clean, and to the point.
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.
I met Dr. Wu for the first time during this visit. He is a very good Dr. with a good bedside manner being easy to talk to, and being very attentive to my symptoms and the illness affecting me. He is a very good diagnostician and I can easily recommend him to others. He helped me tremendously.
Very informative and attentive. Wait time is usually less than 30 minutes.
Doctor was very nice and knowledgeable
Wonderful doctor. Addressed all of our concerns. I would highly recommend him.
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!
The staff was pleasant and curteous. And the dr is spot on great at explaining stuff and very friendly... Will definetly recommend this office to any one in need...
Dr. Wu was very informative. And I appreciate the time he spent explaining everything related to my concerns. He printed out many information for me to take home and read. Highly recommended! And he speaks very clearly and takes his time!
The office was a nice comfortable setting. Dr. Shu Yung Wu...was great. Now this doctor knows his business. He was right on point with his diagnosis. I felt confident knowing I was getting the best care. The staff there is great as well. You won't regret this visit I promise. Thank you If I was giving a rating 1 to 10. They would get a 10.
Very good doctor. Explained all my options to find and treat my allergies. Very amiable.
Pleasant, smart, and good-natured, Dr. Wu put me at ease right away, and impressed me with his thoroughness, intelligence and skill. Would definitely recommend and return.
The office space is noce and pleasant. Very quick appointment. Wait time was nonexistent. I'd recommend to othera, definitely!
The actual appointment was fine, the wait time was a bit excessive. Their administrative department isn't as quick on their feet as they should be.
Nice visit. The receptionist was very pleasant and helpful. Dr. Wu was thorough, helpful and I'm looking forward to starting his recommended treatment and getting some relief :-)
Great office, very efficient.
The doctor and his staff were very professional and friendly. The office was neat and clean as well. He was sincere and I felt like he cared about his patients.
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.
Very professional and helpful doctor. He made my 5 year old feel very comfortable .
He was okay and helping and also informative
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.
Very professional and detailed. The staff is very accommodating and great with kids.
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.
Dr. Wu was incredibly knowledgeable and spent time thoroughly explaining things to me. He was friendly, competent, and very observant. Great doctor.
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
I don't think the wait would usually be this long. The doctor told me they'd been triple booked by accident.
The office was ok his front desk staff was very pleasant and helpful .When seeing the doctor he was very quick like rush and he seem like he didnt want to touch me when he examined me . I had to pay cash because I did not meet my deductible yet he gave me some blood work to have done , he seems like he is kinda off knowledgeable dont know if I would come back again I was just so desperate suffering so much from my allergies I was at my wits end.
Nice BKLYN office, friendly staff, great MD! Considerate of concerns, answers your questions, explains things to you well and in detail. Young and knowledgable. Looking forward to future interactions
Dr. Wu is amazing, very friendly and very down to earth and easy to talk to. Both myself and my boyfriend go to him and both love him. Our first visits we had to wait over 30 minutes but after our first visit it was very quick in and out!
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!
awesome. he's a gem!
Great doctor, very patient, very helpful
He was amazing! Very kind and thoughtful and gave thorough explanations.
Dr. ShuYung James Wu actually spent a lot of time with me (a good 25 minutes,) which I have not experienced with a doctor in quite some time. He understands that when a patient goes to see a specialist, they are expecting/deserve real, special treatment.
He's seriously the best. Really sweet and very practical. I enjoy our chats and his office staff is very nice. The location is great if you are in the downtown brooklyn area and the wait is never very long.
He is an absolutely excellent doctor. Astute, pleasant, smart, thoughtful. I can't recommend him highly enough.
He was amazing! Very informative, gentle with my daughters, professional and helpful. I will highly recommend him!
Had a lot of insight to explain how allergies worked and how reactions occur. Helped me figure out changes I could make to my lifestyle
He was very knowledgeable. He knew exactly what was wrong with me without me even mentioning my problem.
Dr. Shu Yung james was both very informative and very enjoyable to talk to . He and his staff were very thorough in thier in thier exams in finding what I am allergic to . He never minimize the concerns and the opinion of the patient and always leaves confident that you are receiving the best medical treatment ever . Thanks to him finally I am on my way to recovery from allergy . I highly recommend him.
This was my first visit to Dr. Wu's office and I was extremely satisfied with his approach to my case. He listened very patiently to my lifelong history of allergies and asthma. He was very very thorough in taking my history, he asked many questions! He explained with detail my diagnosis and his recommended treatment approach...and even gave me tips to getting affordable prescriptions, which I sincerely appreciated because I would be taking meds long term. A few weeks after my visit to him (and staying on the meds he prescribed) I've seen a remarkable change in my asthma/allergies. Its such a relief to feel better because I was at my wits end before I saw him. I HIGHLY recommend his services.
