I feel that to serve as a physician is a unique privilege.

As adult congenital heart disease specialists, we have the opportunity to care for and to form relationships with our patients through their entire lives.  I believe strongly in the model of patients being active partners in their own care.  My goal is to treat all individuals with respect and dignity, to maintain a high level of communication and transparency with patients and the rest of their health care team, and to empower everyone to actively participate in care and decision-making.

PROFESSIONAL HISTORY

Dr. Wu is board certified in pediatrics, internal medicine, and cardiovascular disease.
