Palliative Medicine 

David Wu, D.O., recently joined Genesis Palliative Care Specialists, specializing in hospice and palliative medicine. Dr. Wu’s background in science and desire to serve his community spurred his interest in medicine, particularly in palliative care. His philosophy is to treat patients from a personalized holistic perspective. 

“I was drawn to palliative care,” Dr. Wu said, “because I find guiding patients and families through some of the most difficult moments of their lives fulfilling, and I liked the possibility of exploring ways to treat symptoms.”   

Dr. Wu was looking for a community hospital system that is quick to change and respond to the needs of its patients and providers. Genesis turned out to be the perfect fit.  

“It’s essential that the medical and emotional health of patients in palliative care is closely monitored and treated,” Du Wu said. “Things can change quickly. It is very satisfying to see that a quick response or explanation provides a great deal of comfort to patients and their families.”  

Outside of work, Dr. Wu enjoys Brazilian jiujitsu, travel and cooking. He has one cat named Nelly. 

Dr. Wu’s office is in Genesis Medical Arts Building III at 1330 Ashland Ave., Zanesville. He is seeing patients in Genesis Hospital, at the Coshocton Genesis Medical Group office and in patients’ homes. His phone number is 740-455-4925. He is accepting new patients.
