Cuts to the chase!

I liked Dr. Woo If there were something really wrong with me which I had initially thought, I know she would have been right there for me. I felt really happy when I left which was odd because she was like let's figure out what is going on so you can get on with your life and I can get on with my more serious patients. She's not a therapist, she is an urgent care doctor!!! Big difference. Her staff also followed up. You can't get better than that.

Gruff but caring, and super smart

I had been Dr. Woo's patient for several years, with only sporadic contact (I was young and healthy) and average patient experience. I sometimes felt her manner was a little short and that she wasn't terribly patient with small complaints (and my complaints were all pretty small).Then one day last year I was feeling a bit under the weather -- a late fall flu bug, I thought -- and made an appointment at the Wang Urgent Care Clinic. Dr. Woo happened to be on duty there that day, and frankly I expected to be sent packing with a quick "wait it out, nothing to do about a virus" message. Instead, she took one look at me, spent several minutes asking questions and listening to my symptoms, and ended up ordering a full bloodwork, just on a hunch that something didn't seem quite right.As it turned out, I had acute leukemia. Dr. Woo called me back at 9pm that night with the blood results to make sure I got admitted to the hospital that night. Throughout my treatment, she stopped by my hospital room frequently to see how I was doing, and she even made time when my mother, staying with me from out of town, caught a UTI and needed a local doctor.In short, Dr. Woo does not suffer fools gladly, and she's not shy about letting you know if she thinks you're making a mountain out of a molehill. But the instant a serious medical situation presented itself, she sniffed it out with sensitivity and alacrity, and worked tirelessly to make sure I got the treatment I needed right away.
