Doctor was very thorough and professional...however, I made a 9am appointment, arrived at 8:50am, and wasn't seen until 9:55am. Not sure why Doctors continue to think a patient's time is not important as their time. Doctors need to stop booking multiple people for the same time slot...this practice is inexcusable.

Waiting time was way too long 2 & 1/2 hours, I almost get up and left. You are called in by an assistant who tries to test your vision and she couldn't read my glasses to well. Then you wait &wait for the doctor. When I finally see the Dr Wu he trying to rush you through with little or no eye test or exam & quick questions, he would have miss the cataract, if I did not mention it. He puts drops in my eyes and sent me out to wait again for 20 minutes. Calls me back in, checks the eyes quickly. Then he sent you to a cheap glasses setup near the waiting area to get my prescription. I hope my prescription is ok. I did not buy my glasses here. They are over booked, too many patients in one day. They can not handle the flood. I do not know if Dr Wu is any good because he's overwhelmed. This is greed not good health care.

Really positive experience here. All staff members were professional, understanding, and warm. I was seen pretty quickly and each stage only lasted a few minutes before I saw the doctor. Dr. Wu took his time to understand my concerns, explainhis thoughts, and treat me accordingly. Very friendly and great experience overall.

The people working with Dr. Wu were very helpful, thorough, and I was able to do all the necessary testing. Dr. Wu was a bit in a hurry and I was also put on Zocdoc, that I did not attend theappointment, but I did go to the doctor. The technology they have to check the eyes is pretty cool and the facilities are clean. I was referred to a surgeon so I will go there for another appointment. Overall I am satisfied with the visit, but the doctor's bedside manner is a bit too curt and impersonal.
