Chester Wu, MD

I am a psychiatrist and sleep medicine doctor in Houston, TX, board certified in both Psychiatry and Sleep Medicine. After training at Baylor College of Medicine and Stanford University School of Medicine, I established and directed the medicine program at the Menninger Clinic before starting my private practice.

I provide medication management, psychotherapy, and sleep medicine services to adults.

As a solo practitioner I have tailored my practice to what I think encourages the best possible working relationships and outcomes including:

1. Allowing clients direct access to reach out to me by phone, text, or email

2. Having more time for appointments which can then be much more than a "check in".

3. Being able to work directly with clients instead of through assistants or other practitioners 

I am also unique in my enjoyment to work with clients through psychotherapy completely or in conjunction with medications. I have a special interest in the working with insomnia that may or may not be related to psychiatric issues.

Aside from my practice, I am a medical reviewer for Rise Science and Everyday Health.
