I didn't have a PCP before Dr. Nancy Wu, and I had done a lot of research to find one I thought would be a good fit. She turned out to exceed my expectations, and I'm really happy I was able to see her. She was thorough and compassionate, and I only waited 10 minutes to see her. She took the time to fill out my forms for school and we talked about most of the issues in my medical history. I'd definitely recommend her to anyone seeking a PCP and will return to her in the future.

Dr. Wu is friendly but she is always over an hour late I called prior to my appointment and was told she was on time when I arrived at the office I waited for over 30 minutes checked in to see what was going on and was told she was running late. When asked why I wasn't told over the phone when I called he said he didn't know. I finally saw Dr. Wu an HOUR after my appt time. I was then in a bad mood and didn't get the most out of my appt.

The overall experience was great because everyone was helpful. Follow up call was made as promised.

I love Dr. Wu but hated that I had to wait for over an hour to see her. When I did see her, I really enjoyed the time she took to really talk to me - she spent over 20 minutes with me and never rushed me. However, the wait to see her was annoying. I had to reschedule my appt because she was 1.5 hours behind previously and this time, I still had to wait over an hour from my appt time to see her.

Reviewed on May 26, 2019 7:00 PM

As always, Dr. Wu is both warm and friendly and knowledgeable and competent. She is both patient and able to provide sound medical advice.

Reviewed on May 20, 2019 7:00 PM

I enjoy seeing Dr. Wu. She listens well, is empathetic and answers questions carefully. She is warm and friendly. She seems to be improving her time management as I did not wait very long to see her on this visit and she was actually ready to start before her assistant had finished the preliminary check-in.

Reviewed on May 20, 2019 7:00 PM

I feel like this doctor is behind schedule more often than not. Gets frustrating. To be fair, she spends a lot of time with every patient including me, but I've waited 2+ hours, at times, to see her.

Dr. Wu is the best PVP there is hands down. She is thoughtful, genuine and considerate. She takes her time in explaining things and asks how I'm doing. I believe she cares about me and my health. All doctors should emulate Dr. Wu' s approach with her clients. I would wait 10 hours to see her rather than meet with another provider. That said, Advocate needs to allow their doctors to spend more time with their patients. 20 minutes is not enough!
