Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

10 stars periodontist. I saw many periodontists before him, and none of them compares to Dr. Yu. His performance, knowledge, attendance to patients, top equipment, the best in the world materials ( I educated myself about it), taking classes about novelties in dentistry and perio dentistry in Europe ( Switzerland, best in the world), the staff- everyone is exceptional. Yes, you pay for what you get, but if you choose less, will cost you more ( someone comment about cost). And to all of you out there needing help - NEVER go to Dr. Crawford. 3 surgical areas he did, turned into disaster, and if you cancel an appointment because you have doubts about going again to Dr. Crawford, his wife, who also works in the office will scorch you for that. My words are not enough to express my trust and admiration for a professional like DR. YU. Do yourself a favor!

Remarkable doctor and team. Dr. Yu saved my teeth from rapidly advancing periodontal disease with his LANAP prowess. The procedure is very tolerable and reasonably effective. I suspect if I keep up my maintenance commitment, dentures won't be in my future any time real soon. His staff is extremely respectful and professional. The entire office operates with a high level of quality and commitment to the client. This practice stands apart from others.

Seems to be very knowledgeable, but expensive. Wants partial payment up front before starting a procedure. Has no payment plans. Also wants remainder of bill paid complete after work is complete. Staff is very pleasant.

HORRIBLE I WOULD NEVER EVER RECOMMEND THIS MAN!!!!! I had some excess gum and instead of recommending me to an oral surgeon, he made the stupid decision to attempt to remove the gum tissue. In this attempt he cut into some nerves in my upper lip resulting in some loss of feel in my lip!!!! DO NOT GO TO THIS MAN!!!!!!

Dr. Yu and his receptionists in both St. Pete and Temple Terrace were so very kind in response to an emergency concern (not of Dr. Yu's making - he was the back up for regular periodontist). Dr. Yu called me back himself to discuss the issue. He listened carefully and then alleviated my concern with a full explanation. Both the receptionist in the St. Pete office and the Temple Terrace office were so understanding and calm and allowed me to explain the situation without interruption.

Dr Yu is a gentle, caring, brilliant and trustworthy doctor. I have been under the care of at least a dozen dentists and he is surely one of my favorites.

Dr. Yu is a good dental surgeon. The Dentists he works with and recommends are a different matter. We paid $50,000 for experience and expertise. In the Dentist we received neither. He was ill educated and inexperienced and did a very unsatisfactory job. I am stuck with ill fitting dentures resulting it a constantly sore mouth.
