    My daughter had a soccer sports injury on the weekend & Dr. Yu's office was able to see her first thing Monday.The initial wait time was a bit long, but since they were fitting me into an already tight schedule, I did not mind waiting. Staff is extremely friendly & courteous. Dr. Yu is extremely patient and spent a good 30 minutes with us making sure he answered all of our questions. This office is the way a doctors office should run.Did not feel rushed.Given VIP treatments all they way.10+stars

    I already had 1 knee replaced, so I knew what to expect. My Dr in NY was awesome. I didn't have to ask a thing spent quality time w/me & went into great detail what to expect, before I even saw him he made sure to have his assist. do more detailed x-rays. So when I started to have the same symptoms, I knew what to expect. What I didn't expect is to spend more time filling out paperwork than the Dr took with me, 10 min cortisone shot & for that it cost almost $2600! Now have to wait for surgery
