Specialties

Dr. Derek J Wu has the following 1 specialty

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

Great Service and Communication

I searched and vetted several pediatricians for my son after I had him. I found others too busy, too quick to end the appointment, or overwhelmed. And as a first time mom, I am glad I found Dr. Wu in Los Alamitos. I continue to refer him out. He is very attentive, and is generally very accessible (even on the weekend when I panicked about my son having an allergic reaction he gently and calmly guided me on the phone about what to do!) At the end of every appointment, he allows more than enough time to answer questions and makes sure our experience at the doctor's office is down-to-earth and easy. We never feel rushed and I also enjoy seeing other parents there at the office. If you're looking for this type of professional, yet community-oriented doctor, I recommend Dr. Wu. Thanks Dr. Wu for making my son's first couple of years at the doctor's comfortable!
