I imagine this one only treats very acute problems. I was turned away for early RA which has now been proven by x-rays by a truly great rheumatologist. She also told me she was doing me a "favor" by doing bloodwork for metals (even though they messed up the test - no more favors please!) She spent less than 2 minutes in the room and moved my arms around (nothing else), looked at but did not touch my ankles, and said "it's not RA"

knowledgeable, thorough, friendly, warm; reassures when appropriate, is not wasteful with lab tests. overall, a very trustworthy physician

Dr. Yu is extremely caring, sympathetic and thorough. I had been battling severe joint and muscle pain for about ten years. I saw countless doctors who merely poked around at me, and either said I had fibromyalgia, or psychiatric issues and dismissed me w/out any further testing. After explaining this to Dr Yu, she took it a step further with numerous tests. Turns out I have connective tissue disease, and with the treatment she put me on, my pain has decreased dramatically. Such a wonderful Dr!

For myself not such a good review, she seems willing to help but here I am, SED rate high and she said it's most likely my liver and sends me to see a specialist. I finally get in to see a specialist and I appear crazy because there is NOTHING wrong with my liver at all, my follow up is in 1 year. Seen her video, to be fair, doctors to have a lot of patients,It's impossible to satisfy all of them. A few times I've noticed that when there are challenges she gets motivated...just not with me.

Her staff, resources and scheduling are excellent, but she only knows how to treat acute RA. Spent 2 minutes with me trying to belittle my joint pain.
Just diagnosed w RA. Last patient of the day. No time spent to discuss the dx just said lets start with the first medicine ...and Could loose my hair. Called back in about a week ..due to severe side effects. Medicine changed ...still sick..but have to wait. 2 1/2 months for follow up. If you watch the you tube vid..and see her ...Not close to true. Come on ~show compassion Doc (take time 2 teach n listen) ! Ps Your nurse should,not be changing my meds via the phone..) she knows,nothing about me

Firstly, I never have to sit in the waiting room - my appointments are always on time. Dr. Yu spent a long time going over all test and xray results with me. She explained the cause and affect aspect of the issues I was experiencing. Dr. Yu listened to me and understood why there were specific treatment paths I did not want to explore. In using the medical portal available to all patients, I always get a response to an email within a few hours. I positively recommend Dr. Yu to everyone.
My case was very difficult to diagnose and many other doctors dismissed my symptoms. She was thorough and pleasant. I found her to be very pleasant and caring.
