I had a virtual appointment with Dr. Yu because I was sick and my GP was unavailable. Dr. Yu was knowledgeable and helpful and prescribed a medication that fixed my problem. The only downside was she was extremely rushed and did not ask a lot of questions. At first I was worried she wasn't getting enough information but I suppose it worked out fine.

Dr. Yu saw me at the last minute due to a medical issue that I was experiencing. She was covering for my normal internist who was away. She was extremely thorough in her examination and showed a great deal of compassion and concern regarding my medical concerns. She ordered bloodwork at 4 PM This past Friday and not only where the results Completed and sent to me within nine hours, Dr. Yu reached out to me in a message at 12:20 AM. She was wonderful in every way! I would recommend her wholeheartedly without any reservations whatsoever to any patient who needs A great internist. To reiterate I cannot express to perspective patience how compassionate she is.

She cares about her patients. She asks probing questions to determine if something is a problem or just temporary issue. She is thorough gentle and very smart. She is finally accepting new patients. Run while you have the chance. I was thrilled to find her as my PCP went to Westchester. It took me 3 years to stike gold.

I have been with Dr Yu for a few years. During Covid, I was so grateful to be able to reach her via TeleMedicine/Zoom. I trust her and because she paid close attention to my symptoms she sent me to a specialist, who found something serious, but manageable. I am eternally grateful to her for her good instinct. ??
