Philosophy:

Dr. Wu’s professional drive comes from her personal desire to help people with neurodegenerative conditions. “I have a lot of passion for taking care of patients. It’s so important to establish good communication because you have to know the person before making any diagnosis or treatment plans. Everyone has different needs and expectations.”
