Chester Wu, MD

Dr. Chester Wu is double board certified in Psychiatry and Sleep Medicine. After training at Baylor College of Medicine and Stanford University School of Medicine, Dr. Wu established and directed the first sleep medicine program within a psychiatric system in the United States while at the Menninger Clinic. He hopes to have the privilege to provide his experience and expertise to you.

He provides medication management, psychotherapy, and sleep medicine services to adults.

Dr. Wu’s treatment philosophy is that trust, compassion, and comprehensiveness are the keys to positive outcomes. Starting with a foundation of trust, Dr. Wu seeks to appreciate his patients’ life experiences (both awake and asleep) and work together with his patients to help them attain insight and change.

As part of transparency, Dr. Wu believes it is essential to help his patients understand their diagnoses, treatment options, and expectations for treatment. Dr. Wu seeks to communicate goals and also concerns during treatment.

Comprehensiveness means not only listening to your story, but understanding your physical, emotional, spiritual, and cultural experiences. Dr. Wu believes it is as important to explore sleep as it is to discuss waking life. Lastly, comprehensiveness entails collaborating, if permitted, with primary care physicians, other professionals, and loved ones to help bolster your treatment.
