Dr. Wayne M Woo has the following 2 specialties
- Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism
An endocrinologist is a physician with extensive training in understanding, diagnosing and treating conditions related to the endocrine system. The endocrine system regulates the balance of hormones.
Conditions of the endocrine system involve an over-abundance, or deficiency of a certain hormone. While there is a range when it comes to the amount of a hormone that is deemed normal in a human, these specialists determine whether a person's amount of hormone is indicative of a health concern. Two conditions this specialist might treat are diabetes and obesity.
- 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 would never again recommend Dr. Woo or his clinic. Recently, I went for my appointment and the receptionist was not only rude, and attempted to pick an argument with me, but she was quite racist. After her unprofessional behavior towards me, she then called me stupid and turned to talk about me with her co-workers. Once I was called back, the technician acted the same as her friend - I watched their conversation which involved a lot of pointing towards me. She was rude, unprofessional, and extremely disrespectfully racist. I wish I could say this was new, but the rudeness and unprofessionalism was not. The outright racism was however. The icing on the cake however was when the Office Manager, Pat - who is married to Dr. Woo, came out of the back and accused me of videoing my appointment. I'm unsure if everyone took their crazy pill, but the OM then begins to yell about their policy of not videoing their staff. I've been going to this clinic for over 5 years and not once has anyone said anything to this level of harassment. Additionally, I ALWAYS input my A1C, weight, measures, and whatnot into an app on my phone to track how I'm doing. I ALWAYS have my phone out - whether I'm waiting the 45 mins - 1 hour (normal waiting times) and playing games or adding notes to my diabetes app. It has NEVER been a problem before - in fact, no one has EVER said anything about my phone being out or used. In summary, the staff are vile, unmannerly, bigoted, inefficient buffoons. The Office Manager, Pat, was completely out of line, hateful, unprofessional tyrant. The staff was completely different than my visit months previously, so I can only suppose that racist was new to the list of requirements to work in this wholly amateurish office. As a side note, the NPs and GPs that visit you in your room are amazing - well-educated, caring, competent professionals. It's like night and day from front to back of clinic. In my last year of visits, I've only seen Dr. Woo himself once. So if you do go, get use to the revolving door of miserable, non-educated front door staff.
This doctor was not thorough in explaining: the diagnosis of thyroid disease, the purpose of the testing, the purpose of radiation, the lasting effects of the radiation, the fact that this treatment was permanent. The doctors spends less than two minutes in the room and does not talk to or listen to the patient. No alternatives were given at the onset although later I found out that there were other options. The intern seemed to be better at trying to explain than Dr. Woo. The staff is very friendly and courteous.
My sugar increased I heard about Dr. Woo came to Dr. Woo and he taught me how to shop for healthy food. Took me off all my insulin, then put me on Byetta. The Byetta made me lose 27 lbs. Now I exercise 3 or 4 times a week. I am now aware of taking care of myself watching my blood glucose levels 3 times a day and stay between 6.1 and 6.5 on my A1c. I am glad to have contacted Dr. Woo because he has made a change in my life. I am more healthier now.
