From the first visit with Dr. Yu until my follow up visits he made me very comfortable and he is very knowledgeable able what he's doing and going to do. Dr. Yu took his time to explain things to me and show me as well. I felt I was in great hands from our very first visit. This man is truly a blessing I will recommend him for sure.

Dr. Yu was outstanding as always!! He answered all my questions re problems with my ankle and feet with great clarity and insight. Also he explained some long-term, key issues I had from back surgery causing pain in my thigh and knee which other doctors had not been able to, plus what I should do about dealing with these issues. He always spends adequate time listening to and answering my questions until I understand them. I am very fortunate and blessed he is my doctor. I rate him a 5 (superior) on all the rating items. I am not sure a previous submittal gave a 5 ratings on all these even though I meant to, so this is to correct it to all 5's if I made a mistake before.
