Dr. David Woo has the following 4 specialties
A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.
- Geriatric Psychiatry
- Geriatric Medicine
A geriatric specialist is a physician who treats the elderly population and the conditions that most commonly affect them. These doctors have special training in the effects of aging on the body and mind of a patient.
Geriatric specialists treat common ailments faced by senior citizens, such as frailty, incontinence, memory problems, arthritis, senility, decreased functioning and more.
In addition, geriatric specialists keep abreast of the different medications that an elderly person is prescribed to treat their more complex health issues in order to decrease adverse side effects and avoid dangerous drug interactions.
A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

Deciding to change my entire life and get well was so hard for me to come to terms with. After my first appointment with Dr Woo, I knew he was the Dr that I wanted to see for the rest of my life. I have not one negative thing to say about him or his approach. Thank you dr woo- forever in debt to you.
I recently started seeing Dr Woo and I can not put into words how amazing this guy is. He is so smart. He is so "real". It's so easy to talk to him and figure out what the best solution is. He is also VERY good at communicating with you if you have a question or concern between your appointments. I can already tell that I want to be under his care forever. If you need a Dr, he's the one - I PROMISE you!
I had a bit of unusual situation when I reached out to Dr. Woo for help on mental health related issues and I could not say enough how much I appreciated his work. Dr. Woo is very smart and a great listener. His personable but very professional approach makes you feel comfortable talking about your issues which is critial to finding solutions for them. When you interact with him you could feel that he himself is a sensitive person and able to well utilize his professional knowledge to have much insight into your feelings and issues to help you. I also noticed from waiting in the waiting area that he works with a diversified pool of clients so if you belong to an ethnic group, especially Asian like me, you would find that he is more sensitive and understanding of your emotion and feelings compared to other capable mental health professionals. Through talking with other clients of his , I found just like me they were all very happy with him. I strongly recommend Dr. Woo.
