Dr. Heidi Wu has the following 1 specialty
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I am a pretty understanding person who doesn't expect everyone to be perfect all the time and who understands that mistakes can be made. Dr. Wu presents as tight, tidy and knowledgeable so it was very surprising to me to have her fail to follow up on a serious health condition and then to misdiagnose another. I was told there was no relationship between a specific symptom and an illness which there is according to wikipedia and just about every darn piece of medical literature out there. I was told to medicate for a condition I did not have which would have dramatically affected my well being. I cannot recommend this Dr and would advise people to look elsewhere for solid medical care.
Heidi Wu is a terrible doctor and I would not recommend her to my enemy. She has ZERO bedside manner and she is cold, unsympathetic and ungracious and offered very little insight when questions were presented to her. More importantly, she failed to follow up with test results on several occasions. This was especially of concern since said results required further investigation; if I had not called, I don't believe I would have known that I needed to follow up with a specialist. She failed to follow up on results with other family members, all of whom are also now former patients. Her staff is likewise delinquent in filling prescriptions and following up. Additionally, they are rude and acted put upon when requests were made. Stay away if you care about your health and want to be treated with care and kindness!
Love, love, love this doctor! Friendly, caring, spends quality time with you...i've never seen a doctor casually sit and talk w/ me as a caring friend before until I experienced Dr. Wu. She has a great demeanor and takes time to ensure all your questions are answered. The staff is nice and friendly as well.
