Continue to be very pleased with my care

Dr Wu is the best! She truly listens and because of this discovered I had a brain tumor (that went undiscovered for 3 years by others), when I had low iron and counseled me often on preventative care. She always follows up when she says she will. Truly a caring and excellent provider.

Dr Wu is very thorough and is easy to talk with.

Staff and Dr. Wu are outstanding in my opinion. All make one feel at home and enable one to share all health concerns. My daughter and I are very blessed to have Dr. Wu and her staff as our Primary Care Team.

  Dec 22, 2023
Everyone was very helpful and treated me with respect and a caring attitude. Like this clinic very much, they are well organized.

  Dec 11, 2023
I feel like I have a good rapport with Dr. Wu, that she gives me her full attention and thoughtful responses to my questions. I have confidence in her experience and training and feel she brings it all to my healthcare.

  Dec 8, 2023
Staff is always positive

  Dec 5, 2023
She's smart, teaches me useful things, listens and addresses each issue, offers follow ups if appropriate. Excellent.

  Dec 1, 2023
I went for my annual exam but exam for annual was not comprehensive enough so I had to combine the annual visit with a regular office visit (which required add'l cost/copay). This may be the insurance interpretation of what is covered in an annual exam but add'l appointments were necessary for bloodwork & cognitive testing. There was no discussion of balance, gait, flexibility or reflex. Plus the onsite lab being closed is still a huge inconvenience as this office was initially chosen for the close proximity to my residence

  Nov 17, 2023
Positive experience all around. Needed to get a wellness check for pre surgery on cataracts. Legacy got me in quickly on a tight timeline. Dr Wu was personable and responsive to my questions. She puts her patients at ease. I'm grateful to be in her care.

  Nov 14, 2023
Doctor Wu checks all the regular boxes but her special appeals are first her charming and disarming "bed manners" and second her thoughtful inclusion of non-pharmaceutical treatments in her recommendations.

  Nov 14, 2023
A small office with excellent staff. Easy to get to and plenty of parking.

  Nov 13, 2023
Dr Wu is always very friendly and thorough

  Nov 9, 2023
Most of Dr's time is spent with the computer. She is listening but not with her full attention..

  Nov 7, 2023
I have always had good instructions and but don't always follow what I am supposed to do. I am still strong and can do anythingI want to do...........

  Nov 6, 2023
I feel that the staff with whom I interacted were all pleasant and attentive. Very professional.

  Nov 6, 2023
Dr. Wu is a very caring and calming doctor

  Oct 20, 2023
It was disconcerting to me that the doctor kept checking the time on her watch. I felt that I was making her late for her next appointment or that she needed to leave.

  Oct 19, 2023
Dr. Wu listens and gives great, honest feedback. I feel comfortable talking to her about any issues I have.

  Oct 17, 2023
She seems to read my mind. Also she listens, never rushed, and is so very informed and gets referrals sent if needed ASAP

  Oct 17, 2023
I have recommended this provider to others

  Oct 12, 2023
I very much like having kar-yee wu as my dr. She is kind and understanding so I feel comfortable talking with her and feel confident in her responses and medical advice

  Oct 10, 2023
I would like to get my pain medication on time this is very important and for whatever reason I feel that it's not taken very seriously.

  Oct 6, 2023
Dr. Wu is EASILY a top 1% provider. I would gladly have her to my home for dinner or other. She is amazing. She cares for me and two of my family members. I am so incredibly pleased that I have such a top notch provider. In addition, Dr. Wu is a real human. She cares. She laughs. She is real. The world would do well to have a LOT more like Dr. Wu.

  Oct 5, 2023
As always, I am very impressed with my provider and her assistant...very approachable, listens well, answers concerns..am a grateful patient.

  Sep 29, 2023
Time to discuss was excellent. She ordered tests, and made referrals to address my needs. Love her!!

  Sep 27, 2023
I received excellent care. I am very grateful for the attention and time Dr. WU gave to solve the issue.

  Sep 25, 2023
The doctor seemed a bit curt with me in the beginning but warmed toward me at the end of the visit.

  Sep 22, 2023
Dr Wu is so approachable, knowledgeable and helpful. Best provider I have ever had!

  Sep 20, 2023

  Sep 19, 2023
Dr Wu is the best! Kind, empathetic, reassuring, and pragmatic.

  Sep 13, 2023
Amazing team, friendly and efficient receptionists, thorough and friendly MA, and probably my favorite doctor I've ever had

  Aug 30, 2023
Nice clinic. It's just not easy to get right in for non-urgent visits... Which is kind of normal for doctors these days I guess. Overall I like the clinic and staff

  Aug 30, 2023
Everyone at the clinic are wonderful. Friendly, helpful and prompt. Patty is always great. Becca is very nice. Dr. Wu's PA was friendly and helpful. Then there is Dr. Wu, she is wonderful! She shows great concern and offers excellent input. She has a sense of humor that makes the visits easy and comfortable. She always offers suggestions and explains things well. She is very concerned on my care and medical situation. I would recommend her to everyone I know! : )

  Aug 29, 2023
Dr Wu is the best Dr I have ever had. She's attentive, caring,has humor and always listens to any questions or concerns that I might have.

  Aug 8, 2023
I have recommended Dr. Wu to many friends! The office is well-run and efficient. I feel safe/comfortable going there.

  Jul 19, 2023
I felt rushed through. I was told my medical concerns were not able to be addressed during routine physical visit. We discussed things as an additional visit, but I was not able to ask about all of my concerns. I'm curious as to why it seems that separate appointments need to be made for all of my different issues. My medical issues are not severe, so it worries me about people who have multiple health concerns. I have attended appointments with my spouse and my parents where they were able to discuss multiple medical concerns and receive referrals and treatment options at the same time.

  Jul 18, 2023
I am thankful to have Dr Wu as my family DR.

  Jul 12, 2023
Dr. Wu is the best! I wouldn't go to anyone else! Always so compassionate and respectful.

  Jun 30, 2023
She is ALWAYS kind, thoughtful, compassionate, caring, and thorough. It has been hard to book an appointment lately because of staff shortages, but for routine care I prefer to wait to see her if necessary.

  Jun 21, 2023
Dr Wu is wonderful

  Jun 7, 2023
I was very happy with my appointment. Dr Wu listened to my concerns and addressed them to my satisfaction. I feel like she is present to me as an individual and I'm not just another set of lab results. It feels like she is on my team helping me maintain good health and function.

  May 23, 2023
Dr. Kar-Yee-Wu is always so easy to talk to and l am so impressed with her great knowledge. I feel so blessed to have her for my Primary Care Physician . The nurse and all the office staff make me feel welcome and very comfortable to be there.

  May 19, 2023
Dr Wu is easy to talk to and she is good about educating about different medications and health concerns.

  May 19, 2023
Dr. Wu is simply amazing. She listens, makes Me feel comfortable and doesn't sugar coat things. I want her as my primary physician forever!

  May 19, 2023
This visit was much better than my last one a couple of months ago that seemed rushed. The office staff was friendlier this time. The receptionist is still a bit stiff, but she gets the job done. Dr. Wu is a very good doctor and very personable.

  May 17, 2023
I'm extremely impressed by my provider's ability to make me her priority during the visit; her knowledge and listening skills are on point. Her assistants also work well together.

  May 5, 2023
Office staff were friendly and efficient in checking me in. Dr. Wu's assistant talked to me in the examination room, and I described the questions I had that day. She suggested I get a Covid booster, something I hadn't though of. I was very grateful to her for bringing that up and I got the shot. Dr. Wu listened patiently to the issues I wanted to discuss with her. She provided honest, thoughtful responses to all my concerns and based on our discussion, provided a recommendation for a follow-up visit with a urologist. Legacy subsequently contacted the urologist's office, who called me to arrange a visit. I've always been very happy with Dr. Wu's friendly, fully Informed, and direct approach. I have full confidence in entrusting my health to Dr. Wu. She's awesome!

  May 3, 2023
I have recommended this office to friends and coworkers. They also have positive reports and have made their own recommendations to family and friends

  May 2, 2023
I forgot to ask about getting cleaned and went back the next day my ears did not need cleaning so I left

  Apr 24, 2023
Dr Wu is always friendly, professional, and considerate. I like her style

  Apr 21, 2023
I was offered the blood draw for my labs to be in while in the doctor's office, and to receive the latest Covid booster as well, which I gratefully accepted

  Apr 21, 2023
Dr Wu and her assistants are fantastic. Dr Wu not only listens but hears my concerns, helps relieve me of any and patiently explains how to resolve these concerns. She has a great sense of humor which makes one's shoulders relax. I appreciate her time, help and patience so much and feel grateful to have found her. Not long ago I was sharing how happy I was about Dr Wu and this person asked who my doctor was. When I told him that my doctor was Dr Wu, he literally said, " I've heard she is great! My friends see her and love her!" Now this gentleman was a stranger so it was such a treat to hear his compliments which aligned with mine.

  Apr 19, 2023
Everyone was very friendly and respectful of my feelings and needs.

  Apr 19, 2023
Dr Wu is cheerful, thorough, a very good listener and I feel I am in the best of hands.

  Apr 18, 2023

Doctor Wu is consistently excellent and I have recommended her to many friends! Her assistant did a very very good job and the people at the front desk were friendly, warm and professional. I'm very happy with my medical care!

  Apr 4, 2023
My visit was very positive. Left with information and a plan.

  Mar 20, 2023
This was a new patient appointment, and I really appreciated the fact that everything I had on my list to discuss about my healthcare needs was almost exactly what the doctor addressed during my visit. I felt confident and secure in the knowledge that my doctor and her team had an effective and comprehensive system in place to ensure the best possible patient care. It's important to me that my care team is knowledgeable, attentive, and genuinely invested in me and my health, and although this was my first visit, it was a very good start. On a final note, I was also impressed that the MA was able to draw my blood in the office. It saved me from having to take a trip to the lab. So convenient!

  Mar 17, 2023
Dr. Wu has a researchers mind and rather self aware doctor's beside manner. She relies on intelligence and humor to make me feel well and healthy even though she could see me as elderly and beyond need for top sensitivity. That is unique and makes her in demand in the industry. I hope she does continue with my primary care even though her calendar is full and my needs are not great.

  Mar 15, 2023
She is OK

  Mar 13, 2023
Dr. Wu is both professional and friendly. I do not feel judged when I see her, nor do I feel that my concerns or questions are unimportant to her. My only criticism is not of her, but the system. It is very hard to get an appointment

  Mar 13, 2023
My provider is so pleasant and always is thorough and professional. This visit was a follow up as I have begun a new rx so she ordered new blood test, which I will schedule.

  Mar 7, 2023
