Dr Wu and Serene are a very good team and are exactly what I expect/want from a GP. Both professional, knowledgeable and relate well with patients.

I would have liked to have had the blood work done before my visit so it could be discussed during the face-to-face. The orders for the blood work were not submitted until the day before my appointment when I contacted the office to inquire about them. Other than that, I love this practice. Great personnel and easy location for me to access.

I needed a referral. At my age, it is hard to get to the office for a personal visit. I had photos I might have sent of the swollen legs (surgeon who had operated on my veins in past years has retired) Unfortunate that this was not possible without personal viewing! So... This took extra time to get the appt., and referral. Not happy with that.

Loved Dr. Wu! I haven't seen a PCP in many years and was really anxious about finding a nice and patient PCP to establish care with, but Dr. Wu made me feel really safe and comfortable voicing my concerns. I will definitely be back. <3

It was my first time visiting this Dr.and she was comparing that she is tired. After my blood work which is abnormal did not get any call or messages from this Dr. Regarding what I need to do I just got a message from the lab and the nurse who just forwarded the lab to me.

Although I moved miles away recently, I am still seeing Dr. Wu because I really like her. She treats me like a friend more than just a patient. Eventually, I'll have to find a provider closer to me soon, but I'll never forget her!

I was reticent for this initial PCP establishing care visit but I was truly touched by the kindness, authenticity and professionalism of all three people; reception, MA, and MD. It was the best possible experience and I felt and feel incredibly lucky to have had it. I had been aided by another Legacy employee to secure the appointment, so with the exception of one sour experience, everyone and everything else with Legacy has been top notch. Deep bow of gratitude for that.

Dr Wu and PA, Serene, are ALWAYS so caring and LISTEN to all we have to say. They remember little details of our family that we've shared over time and follow up asking how we all are and what's new. They are wonderful and TAKE TIME to really hear what we have to say and work with us for the best solutions TOGETHER.Front office staff, Nancy and Patty, are always pleasant and clear on the phone and in person. If we have concerns they personally can't answer they will go up the chain to have someone who can and will take care of us ALWAYS. These gals are the best!

Dr. Wu is detailed, personable, with a very good grasp of specific details on a variety unique medical issues..more then most general family physicians i've seen. She doesn't act like she's in a rush to be done with you. I'm pretty healthy for my age, but when i need a doctor i know she'll know what's up or refer me to the appropriate and competent specialist.

she listened and made plan for my care. I was relieved as I hadn't gotten the care from my legacy oncologist, that person did not listen to the severity of my symptoms and didn't follow up, so I was very happy to have someone who really listened snd fo something! easy to talk to snd made things easy to understand.

Dr. Wu is what anyone would want in a primary care provider - she's very helpful and has a deep understanding of my medical history. She always has an answer, particularly when she realizes that a referral is necessary. She has a wicked sense of humor and always spends a lot of time with me. I am so pleased to have found Dr. Wu!

The receptionist was curt and rude. It was early in the morning so I wonder why she was so tense and seemed so stressed. I think that person is very important to the practice and they do a lot to make the patient feel welcome and at ease. The person I dealt with seemed burned out and in need of some support for herself. I followed the protocol but got an impression she was thinking I didn't understand. I think her manner was stressed and seemed to be irritated.
