Dr Wu is and excellent doctor and surgeon. I had the Visian ICL in both eyes and would highly recommend her for this surgery. She went out of her way to evaluate me after surgery so I could avoid a 2nd trip into Boston. When it comes to surgery (never mind delicate eye surgery) you want the best and Dr Wu is definitely 1 of the best.
I went in for a visian ICL implant to correct my vision. It was not without any complications. But Dr. Wu and her team were always there to help and to answer all my questions. Eventually things worked out, my eyes healed and I do no longer need glasses. I have consulted another Eye surgeon for comparison but with Dr. Wu only I felt that every recommendation she made was in the best interest of the patient's medical outcome.
Update - met with Dr. Wu who discussed options and I chose cataract surgery with Symfony lens to replace mine. Dr. Wu is easy to talk with and explains well. I had the first eye done, and wow! What an improvement. But to the point, the surgery site (Surgi-site in Waltham) was great, everyone was professional and personable, from the receptionist to the post-op nurse. In and out within 3 hours. Follow-up the next day was a little slow, but because it went so well Dr. Wu okayed moving the date up for the 2nd eye, if an opening was available. The office made it happen, and my 2nd eye was done the next week. Again, a great experience at the surgery center. For NEEC, the receptionists in both Dr. Wu's area and the clinic area (where you go for the day after surgery check) we very pleasant and helpful. My experience with NEEC has been very positive, from the first contact to the surgery results (I am no longer wearing glasses, we'll see how good the vision gets in the next month). The 2nd surgery follow-up appt went very well and thorough. Great people, great doctor, great surgery. Don't think you'd go wrong here.
This was my first experience with Dr. Rifkin and I couldn't be more impressed! Her "chair-side" manner put me at ease immediately and, within a matter of minutes, I knew I was in the care of a brilliant, caring, passionate eye professional who truly cares about her patients. Ophthamology Consultants of Boston is quite fortunate to have Dr. Rifkin on staff. I am in great hands because she is truly a gem of a doctor!
I am a paramedic who was referred to Dr. Wu by a coworker who had a great experience getting laser vision correction several years ago. Dr. Wu explained the procedure to me and took a LOT of time to answer all of my many questions about which type of correction was best for me and why, and my concerns about aftercare and healing time. My results (I had PRK done) were amazing! The office staff and other doctors supporting Dr. Wu's care are outstanding and helped make the whole experience great!
