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.

I have recommended Dr. Yu to several people and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. I have always found him knowledgeable, responsive, and anxious to help relieve my arthritis pain in any way he can. He listens carefully to the patient and recommends courses of action that take into account both the patients needs and desires as well as all medical options.

If you have an emergency he will fit you in to his schedule so you do not have to wait weeks to see him. He has help me so that I am able to continue working a very physical job. He is the BEST
in Algonquin,Il |
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 .
Thank you for finding me at my new practice. It has been a pleasure to help take care of you.
