Ratings for Dr. Elsie E. Wu
My wife went to Dr. Wu for the first time. The office staff was not very helpful. They needed info from our pcp. They told us to call to get it faxed. Our Dr's office said their office must call. They simply refused and even said the appointment would have to be rescheduled. Luckily Dr. Wu stepped in and had it faxed from the imaging center. Dr. Wu is procedurally very professional. However when the biopsy report came back she didn't even look at it. She had said it would be available in a week and if she hadn't called in 10 days to call her. We called in 10 days and staff said the Dr. hadn't had time to look at it, try again in 2 days. Over the next 2 days we called 7 times trying to get an answer. They passed the call around the office making excuses. Finally they got tired of us and although they said the Dr. was on lunch they got an answer from her. Needless to say they caused my wife much anxiety and 2 sleepless nights. This behavior for a medical service was, in my opinion, inexcusable.
I was referred to Dr. Wu by a friend who had 2 kids delivered by her and I also delivered both of my kids with her as well. You do have to wait for a long time in the waiting room but their staffs are actuall pretty nice once you get to know them.
I waited 3 weeks to see Dr. Wu and another hour in her waiting room to see her for about 2 minutes. She was obviously in a rush, rude, and terse. Despite the fact that I need to go back, I refuse to go back to her. New doctor, here I come.
Dr Elsie Wu is a doctor who will ABANDON her own patients when complications arise. She becomes UNREACHABLE, UNINFORMATIVE and UNFRIENDLY when things do not smoothly with a patient's condition. A highly IRRESPONSIBLE doctor with NO COMPASSION for her patients.
Both myself and my husband find Dr. Wu to be very attentive and knowledgeable. I just started seeing her during my pregnancy and I plan to continue to see her after. She has a great demeanor and while her practice is very busy, I feel I will have my share of her time at each visit. She makes sure I understand what she's taling about the reasons behind her treatment plans. She explains things, but does not talk down to us. I feel very comfortable in her care.
I agree with the other comment - this doctor is not helpful when it comes to other problems. I asked her about some other things and she just bypassed whatever I asked. I understand she is an OB but when I went to the office they said that she left an hour ago to deliver a baby- I live near her office they could have attempted to call me they have my cell and home number. I had no choice but to go to her since my HMO got prior auth for me to see her. As soon as I am in the clear I will be searching for another OB!
You can only see this doctor for whatever you made an appointment for. If you have any questions regarding any other type of ailment you are forced to make another appointment. You wait approximately 30 minutes before she will see you for a good minute. I've been to her office twice and can honestly say that I hardly know what my doctor looks like.
