Shasha Wu, MD, PhD

Associate Professor of Neurology

Shasha Wu, MD, PhD, specializes in the diagnosis and management of adult epilepsy. Using sophisticated EEG and computer imaging techniques, she works to identify the source of a patient's seizures and determine the best possible course of treatment.

Dr. Wu's research focuses on the investigation of EEG biomarkers for the epileptogenic tissue, such as infra slowing activity and High Frequency Oscillations using intracranial EEG recordings. The goal of the research is to help in delineating the epileptic brain tissue for epilepsy surgery and to improve the surgical outcome.

About Our Star Ratings and Comments:

Randomly selected patients are sent patient satisfaction surveys after their visits. We get thousands of survey responses each year. The responses are used to improve patient experience and recognize staff members for the care they provide. Patient survey responses are also used to make star ratings for each provider.

For the star ratings and comments, all feedback on the provider web page is posted as it was given from patients. Comments that do not apply, risk patient privacy, or are not appropriate are not posted. Star ratings and comments come from a number of survey questions. A star rating is not given if a provider only has a small number of survey responses.
