By far the best ENT experience I have had in Austin. I received great care, had an in depth and informative discussion with Dr Wu about possible treatment options and courses of action, had a plan in place in about 15with other referrals and a timeline. Excellent experience. I would recommend this practice very highly.

I chose to see Dr. Wu based on her star rating and medical training. I now understand why her rating is exceptional. Dr. Wu was timely, friendly, to the point, thorough but most of all empathetic. During my procedure there weretimes it was uncomfortable. She would ask if I needed a break or apologize for my discomfort. By the time I left her office my issue of 5 months was resolved with 100% satisfaction and no problems since. Although I hope never to see a doctor again but if I do I will go back to Dr. Wu.

Dr. Wu is a highly intelligent young lady who knows how to connect with her patients and put them at ease. I go in every three months for a procedure that I have had to live with being done for myentire adult life. It has been the sort of thing that I would dread prior to finding Dr. Wu. She is supremely competent and puts me at ease each time I go in. I am no longer uncomfortable! It is nice not to dread going to the doctor. Thanks Dr. Wu!

After years of misdiagnosis by others, Dr. Wu and her staff correctly identified what effected my inner ear and balance issues. She was very thorough and made sure that every possible inner ear issue was ruled out before identifying the correctissue. With her help, and the help of her awesome staff, they have drastically improved my quality of life with treatment. I can not thank her and her staff enough for the great help. I never had to wait for my appointment unless I showed up early. Furthermore, Dr. Wu and her staff were very understanding of my combat related issues and bent over backwards to accommodate me and my disabilities.

The visit was ok, the doctor was personable but the appt with her seemed rushed through. The audiologist was very thorough and helpful. The next day I had a reoccurrance and needed to call the doctor for assistance. Victor was VERYunhelpful and put me off. I finally was able to get help at the end of the day from her nurse Stephanie, after calling back 2 more times. No apologies were offered. Not sure I'll be returning.
