Chester Wu, MD

I am a psychiatrist and sleep specialist 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 where I provide medication management, psychotherapy, and sleep medicine services to adults.

As a solo practitioner my clients have direct access by phone, text, or email for ease of correspondence between appointments.

My practice philosophy is to first conduct an assessment and discuss impressions and potential treatment options. I am conservative with the utilization of medications, However, I recognize that they can and do help many people and I will recommend them when indicated. 

I can provide psychotherapy as a stand-alone treatment or in conjunction with medication management. One of my specialties is working with insomnia through CBT-I and/or medications.

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