March 7, 2020 11:01 AM

She is best doctor one would ever ask for. patient, considerate, sincere, always eager to help and wouldn't give up until the root of an issue is figured out.

March 5, 2020 2:17 PM

March 5, 2020 2:17 PM

Good experience.

March 2, 2020 4:45 PM

March 2, 2020 4:45 PM

I would recommend her

February 28, 2020 11:55 AM

I have been seeing Dr. Wu for over 10 years. I continue to travel a distance to see her in spite of moving multiple times. She is very competent and keep herself updated with mod on medicine and changes in guidelines.

February 28, 2020 11:55 AM

I would keep going to Dr. Wu. I have always been satisfied with Dr. Wu. She listens and spent time with her patients. She cares about her patients.

February 24, 2020 9:50 PM

I love that Dr. Wu always takes the time to listen to all of my concerns and asks deeper questions about my history and my family history of illnesses to get a better picture of my health risks. I also loved that she was on time for this appointment! (I only schedule those if it's the 1st one of the day to prevent the 3-hour wait times that I have experienced with her in past years' appointments.)

February 24, 2020 9:50 PM

Always thorough!

February 24, 2020 8:16 PM

really like the provider, only issue is the wait time

February 24, 2020 5:14 PM

Dr. Wu is good at her job. I enjoy her service.

February 14, 2020 1:48 PM

Dr. Wu is a special human and I'm so grateful that she is not only a doctor, but that she's MY doctor. She is the best provider I can imagine.

February 13, 2020 11:00 PM

Not too happy about return calls. I call and it could take 3-4 weeks for a response.

February 8, 2020 6:17 PM

I like Dr. Wu very much.

February 4, 2020 1:53 PM

I've been seeing Dr. Wu for many years (with the exception of a few years when Advocate didn't accept my BCBS insurance). She's the best. I'm very happy she's my doctor.

February 4, 2020 1:53 PM

Recently Dr. Wu discovered an issue with my health which is why I am now seeing a specialist.

February 4, 2020 1:30 PM

she was very nice.

February 1, 2020 2:35 AM

Dr Wu is always great!!!

January 30, 2020 8:34 AM

I felt listened to and taken care of.

January 27, 2020 1:52 PM

I enjoy my visits with Dr. Wu. She is a good listener, kind and friendly and I feel I can talk to her about any health concerns I may have. She is tactful and helpful in bringing up difficult topics like last wishes.

January 27, 2020 8:29 AM

Excellent care and compassion.

January 27, 2020 8:29 AM

all good

January 27, 2020 6:22 AM

My good experience is that my doctor always attends to me well. The bad thing is that they take a lot for them to attend to you when my appointments, it is an hour.

January 3, 2020 12:11 PM

Dr. Wu is professional & very knowledgeable.

December 21, 2019 12:01 PM

Good visit.

December 21, 2019 12:01 PM

Good visit.

November 23, 2019 11:13 AM

I was completely satisfied with my experience. We discussed the specific problem that brought me to the office and then talked about my general health, the fact I had been mildly depressed for a couple of months. She assessed my strength and balance and ordered tests and offered more assistance if needed.

November 23, 2019 11:13 AM

Visit was an excellent experience and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a good, caring general physician

November 15, 2019 11:00 PM

It was a very good experience overall. Thanks.

November 12, 2019 8:59 AM

pleasant very professional.

October 20, 2019 7:00 PM

Very good , as usual. Dr Wu listens and tries to find the right solution for my needs.

October 11, 2019 7:00 PM

good

October 3, 2019 7:00 PM

I have a good experience well gave me instructions for me to maintain the weight I should and the quantity for example or rice I should eat and beneficiary meals to have good health joined with exercising that is required.

October 2, 2019 7:00 PM

excellent doctor. best one I ever had.

September 22, 2019 7:00 PM

She understood my family's history and explain my pain. She told me to exercising and to eat more fruits and vegetables. She really took her time to listen she's a doll.

September 22, 2019 7:00 PM

This provider that I was seen during this visit was very understanding. She asked me if I have problems or some health issues.

September 6, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Wu is easy to talk to and attentive to concerns. Visits with Dr. Wu are comforting and assuring.

September 2, 2019 7:00 PM

Provider services are great. Bldg ambiance not so much. No air conditioning in waiting area on 2nd floor... lighting on 1st floor inadequate... even the clock in waiting room on 2 doesn't work. This is after the renovations.

August 19, 2019 7:00 PM

My visit is always pleasant. Dr. Wu is an excellent doctor and is caring.

August 12, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Wu was very attentive, helpful & kind! Her assistant, X, was as well.

August 12, 2019 7:00 PM

excellent

August 11, 2019 7:00 PM

My provider is very knowledgeable about health issues, is comfortable to talk to and encourages a healthy lifestyle.

August 4, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Wu is so caring & such a great listener. I couldn't be happier that I have such a wonderful doctor.

July 26, 2019 7:00 PM

Attentive to my needs. Respects my opinions.

July 22, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Nancy Wu made my visit a pleasure. Great listener and shared needed general medical information with me.

July 21, 2019 7:00 PM

it was great. She was personable and warm.

July 21, 2019 7:00 PM

I didn't have a PCP before Dr. Nancy Wu, and I had done a lot of research to find one I thought would be a good fit. She turned out to exceed my expectations, and I'm really happy I was able to see her. She was thorough and compassionate, and I only waited 10 minutes to see her. She took the time to fill out my forms for school and we talked about most of the issues in my medical history. I'd definitely recommend her to anyone seeking a PCP and will return to her in the future.

July 15, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Nancy Wu caring & concerned. I'm lucky to have found her.

July 14, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Wu was very personable and listened well to my concerns. She responded to my questions and supplied information to help me overcome a pain problem. If her suggestion did not work, she mentioned the next step to take.

June 30, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Wu is the BEST!

June 23, 2019 7:00 PM

I made the appointment primarily in response to a question I had emailed her about a weird bony lump on my shoulder - I greatly appreciated her time and the conservative approach we're taking to it.

June 20, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Wu is the absolute best doctor I've ever had. She is a special person and a special healer.

June 18, 2019 7:00 PM

An excellent experience I have no complaint at all with the workers of the clinic a familiar attention makes me feel very good.

June 4, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr Wu is always a great listener and gives great advice

June 2, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Wu is friendly but she is always over an hour late I called prior to my appointment and was told she was on time when I arrived at the office I waited for over 30 minutes checked in to see what was going on and was told she was running late. When asked why I wasn't told over the phone when I called he said he didn't know. I finally saw Dr. Wu an HOUR after my appt time. I was then in a bad mood and didn't get the most out of my appt.

May 31, 2019 7:00 PM

The overall experience was great because everyone was helpful. Follow up call was made as promised.

May 26, 2019 7:00 PM

I love Dr. Wu but hated that I had to wait for over an hour to see her. When I did see her, I really enjoyed the time she took to really talk to me - she spent over 20 minutes with me and never rushed me. However, the wait to see her was annoying. I had to reschedule my appt because she was 1.5 hours behind previously and this time, I still had to wait over an hour from my appt time to see her.

May 20, 2019 7:00 PM

As always, Dr. Wu is both warm and friendly and knowledgeable and competent. She is both patient and able to provide sound medical advice.

May 20, 2019 7:00 PM

I enjoy seeing Dr. Wu. She listens well, is empathetic and answers questions carefully. She is warm and friendly. She seems to be improving her time management as I did not wait very long to see her on this visit and she was actually ready to start before her assistant had finished the preliminary check-in.

May 19, 2019 7:00 PM

I feel like this doctor is behind schedule more often than not. Gets frustrating. To be fair, she spends a lot of time with every patient including me, but I've waited 2+ hours, at times, to see her.

May 16, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. X was my primary care physician for over 15 years, I found out she retired when I called to make the appointment. Dr. Wu was very nice & look forward to having her as my PCP.

May 12, 2019 7:00 PM

I l felt that the nursing assistant was trying to rush the doctor by knocking on the door during the visit. What I like about Dr Wu is that she is interested in listening to her patients rather than rushing through the visits. I found the assistants interruption very discourteous

May 8, 2019 7:00 PM

I am very pleased with the care that Dr. Wu has provided me with the for last fourteen years. She is genuinely interested in my health and is easy to talk to.

May 7, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Wu was very helpful and asked lots of questions about my recent injury, and referred me to a specialist.

April 22, 2019 7:00 PM

serious, concern friendly & attentive

April 22, 2019 7:00 PM

Except for having to wait for an hour, my experience was highly satisfactory.

April 21, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Wu is the best physician I have ever had a relationship with. She is very smart and very caring. And she is always on top of things when she enters the examining room.

April 14, 2019 7:00 PM

very compassionate and caring

March 30, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. answered all my questions gave good advice & listened to all my concerns.

March 17, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Wu is an excellent provided who offers time and consideration for her clients. I am impressed and confident that her provision of medical information/treatment and advice is well thought out.

March 13, 2019 7:00 PM

Dr. Nancy explains very clear to me my options & is very kind & professional.)

March 13, 2019 7:00 PM

She is very thorough, listened to my concerns, discussed test results and plan of action to address health issues.

March 10, 2019 7:00 PM

nice and knowledgeable

March 4, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Wu is an excellent professional. The only problem is to get an appointment with her it costs a lot sometimes 3 months.

March 1, 2019 6:00 PM

Good.

February 25, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Wu is the best doctor I have ever seen by far. She takes enough time to provide good care. She really cares about her patients and is very honest and helpful when discussing your health, but does it in a very kind way.

February 24, 2019 6:00 PM

She spent plenty of time with me when I finally saw her, but the doctor was running over 2.5 hours behind schedule and no one at the front desk let me know that until I asked when I might expect to see her, well over an hour after my appointment time.

February 24, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Wu always listens carefully and works with me toward our shared goals for my physical health.

February 9, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr Wu is an excellent provider I feel that I'm not just another patient, that she knows me and my history and I receive better care because of it.

January 30, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Nancy Wu is a very caring doctor. She takes her time with her patients and listens to all my concerns and questions. She not a doctor who rushes her patients in and out of her office as I've seen with other doctors in your office. Instead she is loving, caring and always makes me feel comfortable to speak to her of any medical issue or concern. I wish their would be more doctors like Dr. Wu. Thank you for being so caring. I trust her with my health.

January 29, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Wu is an excellent trusted informed physician

January 29, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr Wu is always very helpful and understanding. She's a great listener. I'd recommend her to anyone looking for a personable Doctor

January 27, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Wu is the best PVP there is hands down. She is thoughtful, genuine and considerate. She takes her time in explaining things and asks how I'm doing. I believe she cares about me and my health. All doctors should emulate Dr. Wu' s approach with her clients. I would wait 10 hours to see her rather than meet with another provider. That said, Advocate needs to allow their doctors to spend more time with their patients. 20 minutes is not enough!

January 26, 2019 6:00 PM

Advocate at the Western-Irving Park site was in the midst of using a new system, Epic. Dr. Wu was doing a good job entering the data of our visit into the system. I'm sure that it was not easy keeping up with seeing patients and learning the new system at the same time.

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

I feel like there is a huge lack of communication. No follow ups on any tests.

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Nancy Wu always listens, explains, and takes whatever time is necessary with a patient to address the situation.

January 24, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Wu is a very warm and caring person and I enjoy my visits with her. She takes the time to listen to any concerns one may have.

January 19, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Wu keeps herself updated with latest evidence based practices. She spends enough time with me. She made a recommendation for me to take the Malaria medication because I was traveling out of country which I would have forgotten otherwise.

January 18, 2019 6:00 PM

Dr. Wu is a good doctor. Because she spends time with her patients she is often behind. The office needs to compensate by booking less appts for her or help keep her on schedule.

November 20, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Wu is wonderful. She makes going to the clinic a much more pleasant experience than it would be otherwise. Let's face it, going to the doctor is never pleasant but she makes it that way. I love her!!

November 16, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr Wu is a wonderful doctor, I do wish appointment times would be long enough to ask questions. it is very difficult to get an appointment with her, so I tend to ignore health issues.

November 11, 2018 6:00 PM

I love my doctor and feel like she genuinely wants me to be well - I just hate how difficult it can be to schedule an appointment and how long I have to wait before being seen (2 hours). it isn't a reason to switch doctors though as I feel comfortable with her

November 4, 2018 6:00 PM

my visit was great with Doctor Wu, very caring, understanding. listens well.

November 2, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr Wu is an excellent listener and easy to talk to. I am very comfortable with the care that she provides.
