Dr. Jost-Vu is phenomenal. She is knowledgeable and cares enough to investigate what to do before repeating common pieces of advice that do not work for everyone. I found her to be the best endocrinologist in the area. Plus she is not condescending, a great trait!

I started seeing Dr. Yost-Vu about 3 years ago after having been with another diabetes doctor. My old doctor kept upping my meds, no good results. I went to Dr. Yost-Vu for a second opinion for my type 2 diabetes. She had me take a test, which the other doctor had not given me. She discovered...Read More
