    Dr. Wada is an exceptional doctor. She understands my health, especially issues that other OSU doctors treat me for so that I get TOTAL care at OSU.

  • Reviewed on Mar 22, 2022

    Dr. Wada was amazing! She was attentive, she genuinely cared, and gave me excellent resources to read about chronic illness. She is dedicated to seeing me get better, and having a doctor who believes something is going wrong in my body, even though we can't quite treat it yet, is a step. Being heard and validated has meant so much.
