Dr. Wenchao Wu has the following 3 specialties

  • Pulmonary Disease

    A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
    These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
    Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
    Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

  • Critical Care Medicine

    Also sometimes referred to as intensivists, critical care specialists are physicians with specialized training in the diagnosis and management of life-threatening conditions. Some of these conditions affect vital organs like the heart and lungs, those that make breathing difficult or impossible, and those that affect entire organ systems, like the renal system.
    Critical care specialists are typically found in a hospital's intensive care unit where they monitor patients with life-threatening conditions and make determinations as to the best course of treatment.

  • Preventive Medicine

    A preventive medicine/wellness specialist is a physician who, through additional training, has become an expert in methods for maintaining good health and preventing disease. These specialists are the doctors people see when they are generally well or without a specific ailment and want to either learn how to maintain their current health or acquire better health.
    These doctors will advise patients on specific diets, exercise regimens, and lifestyle habits that are suited to their particular needs. Preventive medicine/wellness specialists take into account a patient's nutrition deficiencies, physical and cardiovascular capabilities, and habits in order to advise specific vitamins and supplements to take, how much physical activity to undertake, and which habits should be broken and replaced with more positive behavior.

Dr Wu is an amazing doctor! He is very kind, caring, and thoughtful as a physician and surgeon. He arrived promptly at the ER when he was called in to do an emergency surgery on my husband. He stayed the course and discovered exactly what was the cause of the problem. He answered all of our questions and was very patient with us. The day of surgery, he did an amazing job and took special care of my husband post op making sure that all was well until my husband was released from the hospital. He is well thought of in the medical community and staff at St Johns. We are so thankful for his expertise and recommend him highly.
