Dr Yu is an excellent and thorough physician. He's very caring and will take the time to listen and to solve difficult problems. Both my husband and I see him. He's probably too kind to be a great manager is the staff problems & sometimes a wait to see him. He's worth it.

Dr. Yu is absolutely wonderful. He's clearly knowledgeable and is professional as well as compassionate in his approach. He does a great job of explaining the issues at hand, and listens well to patient questions and input. I highly recommend Dr. Yu. Regrettably, the office staff seem to be missing-in-action most of the time. They do not return phone calls (even those directly from my primary care physician) which is highly troubling, inconvenient, and frankly egregious.

Both visits were unsatisfactory. Waite times were 50 mins. And 20 mins., past my appointed sceadualed appointment. girls were very uninviting. Both times I never received a call to remind me about the appointment. I shared my frustration with Dr. Yu about this; he however, made no appologies. He is a poor communicator, and has poor listening skills. I felt unimportant and unheard. Also apparently he only takes appointments Monday thru Wednesday now. Last in first out attitude

Dr. Yu manages to focus on diagnosis and treatment matters while being very personable and warm-hearted. His is a very busy practice, but he's worth the wait.

Horrible Office. Miserable Employees. Horrendous wait times when youre the ONLY patient. God Doctor but not worth the awful wait experience and unprofessional way of running the practice. Find a better place.
