Ratings for Dr. Katherine G. Wu
Dr Wu blindly followed the (mistaken) diagnosis of a psychologist colleague of hers for seven years before it occurred to her to test me for ADHD, which I have. Seven years of functioning poorly due to her group-think. Always acted like she was doing me a big favor to see me and was extremely bossy on the phone while scheduling on the phone. (She regularly said, "This [one slot] is the only time I have: take it or leave it.") If she hates calling her clients so much, why doesn't she hire a secretary? Her meanness during scheduling felt devastatingly true and thus undercut her (admittedly slender) attempts at kindness during the sessions. Also she was too stupid to try dosing me at lower-than-standard doses when the recommended starting dose was unhelpful. (My subsequent psychiatrists have done that with good effect.) Consequently she rotated me through dozens of medications, abandoning them after the first, standard dose had intolerable side effects, thus failing to discern the potential good in taking smaller doses and consigning me to months and months of barely functioning, with meds changing every two weeks. What a dope.
Dr. Wu is SO great. She is very open and warm, nothing cold and clinical about her. She genuinely cares about her patients and invites them to be active in their treatment. It may take time to get a first appointment, but she is well worth the wait. It is a good sign that she is so in demand!
