“Dr Richard Wu, is definitely an expert in his field. The fact that he is hard to get an appointment with is testament to that. I’m not sure how many years he has been in practice, but this is the 3rd office I have followed him to. He is my logic in a crazy world, my calm in the storm without his help over the last 15 years I don’t know where I would be. I don’t know how many more years I will have the pleasure of calling him my Dr, as I imagine psychiatry cannot be the easiest or least stressful of jobs. I don’t even know if anyone bothers reading these reviews, but if you find yourself with a referral to Dr Wu call Cathy the receptionist (who is awesome to by the way) and get yourself a session.” – Helena
