Dr. Yu is amazing. I fractured my heel and he performed surgery to reconstruct my heel. I'm walking again and expect to return to normal activity soon. Dr. Yu does really good work! I hope to never need his expertise again but I wouldn't hesitate to have him as my surgeon again. It's been 4 months and I'm impressed by the outcome.

Dr Yu is such a knowledgeable, intelligent doctor that you would think his “bedside” manner would be stale. No, he is anything but that. He has such a “down to earth” communication and answers any questions in detail. He raises the bar for what you try to find in any doctor. My ankle replacement was 4 years ago and I would do it again. So thankful I did.

Dr Yu and his team were a blessing for our daughter. We had tried rehab and pt for an ankle with multiple sprains and he repaired it after several other orthopedic surgeons told us they didn’t know how to help!! Very kind and considerate of her feelings and she had a lot of input in her treatment!! I highly recommend him!!

He is an exceptional doctor. He listens to the patient and asks questions. He is thorough in his examination. Although I was hurt, he tried to not cause me further pain. He used great visual aides to show me where the injuries were and explained in further detail what was going on. He ordered further tests. Very nice doctor.

Jame R. Yu, MD I had previously used for a lisfranc injury. So, it was no question who I would be using for my broken foot. He and his assistant are extremely attentive, personable, and eager to get you back to ??% I would recommend Dr. Yu to everyone! If I am ever injured and Dr. Yu can take care of that particular injury, he will be the surgeon I would use.
