"I've worked with Fred Wu for the past 5 years, and I continue to learn from his extensive experience and knowledge of the literature on a daily basis. Fred is one of those clinicians who not only provides efficient care but quality care. Over the years, I have started to catch on to part of his "secret sauce"... he cares about his patients, and he is constantly reading and learning about the daily advancements in emergency medicine. From managing septic patients to placing his own central lines and chest tubes, Fred maintains a broad set of emergency medicine skills. In fact, he is usually one of the first to provide evidence-based articles when our department is having a discussion of certain clinical policies and practices. His CAQ in emergency medicine is a great way of allowing both patients and colleagues to know that when Fred evaluates and treats patients, he does so with an extensive background and experiences in the specialty of emergency medicine." – Wonki Chae, MD, MPH
