I have been a patient of Dr. Yu for years. He is one of the best doctors I have ever worked with. He is an expert in the use of cortisone injections for pain relief.

Dr. Andrew J. Yu was one of the best doctors I have seen that conducts the study of the nerves with the EMG testing, he was very gentle and let me know when it was going to be a stronger part of the test. He was compassionate and cares for his patients, and his staff was all outstanding too. I hope to get relief from my herniated disk in my cervical spine in the near future with him. Thanks for blessing Portsmouth Ohio by practicing your hard earned studies & knowledge with us. :)

He has treated me with great skill and empathy for 7 years. Were it not for him I likely would have had several very nasty surgeries, which were not guaranteed to relieve my painful symptoms.

Dr Yu is awonderful , understanding and very skilled physician. I have had several procedures done by him and all have been very successful in alleviating my back pain. Ive been sufffering with back issues for years and he is the first physician that has been able to relieve my significant discomfort. At one point I couldn't even stand up from a chair. He is very caring and has an absolutely wonderful bedside manner. This doctor listens and doesnt dismiss your issues as being insignificant .
