    Dr. Woo is by far the best psychiatrist I've had. He is very attentive and seems to genuinely care. As opposed to other psychiatrists I've seen, he actually takes his time to listen and provide feedback given the information I provide. Other psychiatrists I've seen last no more than 15 minutes in a session. Dr. Woo however, takes up the whole time slot (usually 30-45 minutes). He is also very up to date with technology which is really helpful (i.e. he confirms appointments via email and fills out forms electronically when possible).

    Dr. Woo is compassionate, understanding, and attentive. He really works to address your personal needs and troubleshoot whatever problems you are having. Additionally, when I told him I didn't like a certain medication, he would honor my wishes and let me try something new. Unlike many of my other doctors who would completely disregard my adverse reactions and personal opinion. I would absolutely recommend him 100%.

    I was a patient of Dr. Woo's for 4 years. He was wonderful and even after my insurance no longer covered my visits with him, I still saw him. I only left because I moved to Boston. He was helpful with medication, understanding, and easy to talk to. He was also really great with email and responded promptly to all my questions! This was a HUGE plus for me. I hope I can find someone like Dr. Woo in my new city! I recommend him to anyone!

    Dr. Woo was phenomenal. He spent extra time getting to know my entire background and went out of his way to be detailed and thorough. He was kind, patient, and listened to my concerns regarding previous medications. I have seen many doctors (mainly because my insurance changed several times and there was no overlap), and he is by far one of the best.

    Dr. Woo was very professional, knowledgeable and prompt. He really listened to me and I feel he best understood my needs. Best doctor's appointment (all fields) in a long time. Also, he followed through when he said he would follow up and when as well. Thank you Dr. Woo.

    I haven't seen him in a while but I can tell you that had I not moved, I would still be going to him. He is what a doctor should be, especially a psychiatrist. The appointments were 15 minutes, but it felt like longer because Dr. Woo is extremely insightful, he doesn't just acknowledge a concern, he explores it fully. He educates about symptoms, treatment options and medications. He very much normalizes whatever is happening so that you get a sense that someone believes in you, that you aren't "crazy." When something isn't working, he believes you versus making you feel as if the issue were your fault. He also remembers details so every time you see him a bulk of the appointment is not taken up with the doctor simply trying to remember who you are. Dr. Woo remembers you and I truly believe this quality, as well as the ones noted above, are what keep his clients coming to him. His dynamic is what I seek when I look for new doctors now. He is the standard I set for them. I am truly grateful to him and would recommend him with the utmost confidence in his skillset.

    Dr Woo has been an excellent psychiatrist for me. He is sensitive, respectfully, intelligent, and experienced. I appreciate his tech savvy nature. He's very responsive via email, easy to book appointments with, and accepts credit cards for co-pays. Interestingly, I like the decor of his office, which helps when talking about sensitive subjects.
