Great man and I’m sure an even greater doctor. I say I’m sure because when I went to see him, it was the wrong type of doctor I needed. Still, he stood and talked with me about what was ailing meanyways. He gave me better advice and comfort then I’ve ever received from a doctor in a long time, and even voided the appointment so I wouldn’t need to spend my money on the copay. An extremely knowledgeable and intelligent man, I can’t recommend him enough.

I have had major allergy issues for about 7 years. I've gone to specialists and all kinds of doctors to get answers and results. None have ever come. But within 5 minutes of talking to Dr. Wu, he knew exactly whatwas wrong and how to start treatment for it.

Dr. Wu is great. He takes a holistic approach which I really appreciate- never thought I would be talking about probiotics with my allergist! He’s also very.... understanding? And pragmatic. I have cats and found out my heaviest hitter is Catdander, but not once has he pressured me into giving them away, he’s just working with me on managing given the circumstances. Receptionist is real nice as well. Recommended.

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 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 whathe 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! Veryfriendly 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.

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 cameoff 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 minutesbefore 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.

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!

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 didnot 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 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 myfirst 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.
