DR. YU IS A very good doctor he really cares for his patients and he also has great bed side manners. HE IS ONE OF THE BEST DOCTORS I HAVE EVER BEEN TO CAN ALWAYS GET AN APPOINTMENT WITH HIM WHEN NEEDED THE STAFF HE HAS IS WONDERFUL .

I actually liked Dr. Yu, but cannot recommend his office because of his staff. I was badgered into paying up front for services, and assured that I was only being charged the rate they had contracted with my insurer. A few months later, I reviewed the Explanation of Benefits provided by my Insurer for my two visits and found that his staff had overcharged me by $200 dollars. I had to pursue the matter to rectify, as no refund would have been issued.

Dr. Yu is a sharp and thorough physician. He asks questions that require precise answers. Because I never gave any thought to the frequency or intensity of my pain, answering the questions was difficult at first; however, it made me more aware of the importance of my answers in my treatment. Now, I record as much information as possible so Dr. Yu will obtain a complete picture my situation. I enjoyed reading about him and his extensive experience and am confident that finally I will improve.

I would recommend Dr. Yu to anyone having heart issues. He is compassionate, understanding and his mannerism is beyond compare. His office staff (Pearland) are wonderful ladies. I can't imagine putting my issues in anyone else's hands.
Thank you Kristal for all your support. We look forward to continuing to provide you with the best cardiac care possible! Thank you or your kind remarks from the Cardiac Wellness Clinic team.

The staff at this office has to be the worst I have ever encountered. I had scheduled an appointment when I arrived I was told I didn't have an appointment that day it was 2 weeks later. I asked to see the nurse, she was to busy so she would call later. I never got a call. I called after explaning why I was calling I was told that I did have the appointment but it was moved to the later date. I have called 4 times to get my meds refilled, I still do not have my refills I am changing Dr's.
My apologies to "No help here in League City" for any inconvenience you may have experienced. At the time of your posted response, I was part of a large group of cardiologists and was obliged to follow the policies and practices of the group. I was not aware of the problems you were experiencing. Since July 1, 2016 we opened a new independent practice at the Cardiac Wellness Clinic.If you would like to contact us I am sure we will be able to resolve any problems you may have.

I could not get a return call concerning my questions on the prescribed medication. My primary needed to know why I was not on an ace inhibitor or a beta blocker and my dentist needed to modify my medications for some crown work. After 4 calls with no information or returned call, I was forced to switch doctors. Couple that with me never receiving a stint card and I wonder how this facility is still practicing medicine.
Mr Davis, in reviewing your records, you were already on an optimal medication regimen when last seen. The stent card should have been given to you at the hospital. Unfortunately as part of a large group practice at the time of your concerns, I was not made aware of your questions or your calls. I apologize for your inconvenience and understand your frustration. Please contact my new office at Cardiac Wellness Clinic at (281) 506-7840 if I can help you further with your questions.
