Dr Wu is a good doc, but her duties as a professor definitely take away from her attention to the patient and the patient/dr relationship. She will "sush" a patient who is talking to explain something to a student. I never seem to get enough one on one time with the doc. Mostly dealing with students and nurses. I also dont like that students do the spinal injections and nerve ablations instead of Dr Wu. I feel more like class material than a valued patient. However, she did a fabulous job of diagnosing and having the students treat my main source of pain. I am not thrilled that she cut me off of the pain meds I have been on for the last few years thru the pain dr who referred me. My goal was to eliminate the need for such medication, but I have had extreme chronic daily pain for five years and do not understand cutting the medication that makes the pain even tolerable off before the nerve ablation is complete. There are six total procedures that stretch over several months and actually create MORE pain until they work. So it has been way more painful than necessary. Good news is the lower left lumbar ablation done by dr hurley (dr wu was unable to make it due to emergency) worked great. Soon I have my last one for the right side and pray for success because to continue like this with only mild tramadol for pain relief is no kind of life. Overall... Good doc but lack of empathy and understanding of a patients level of pain. Expects you to tough it out I guess. And informative and friendly but does not provide adequate consult with patient during appointments because of students
