Patient Comments (5)
Las Vegas, NV |
Had an appointment which was made in September 2016 for December 2016. Got an email confirmation confirming the appointment. On the day of the appointment I went to the doctor's office and was told that the doctor was not in the office, hadn't been in the office for over a week at that point. When the email confirmation was shown I was told that it was "too bad, so sad". The receptionist/office bully, Heather, was so rude and nasty. No apology was ever given. All I got was an attitude. Bye Dr Yu

Dr. Yu is a formidable surgeon. Because of a background in competitive figure skating, I suffered with intense hip pain. Dr. Yu has replaced both my hips this past year. Today, I am pain free in the joint and am walking with a regular cane less than two weeks out from the second hip operation. I can't thank Dr. Yu enough for his excellent care. Do not hesitate to choose this outstanding surgeon!

Dr. Yu is an excellent doctor and surgeon. He took great care of me! Couldn't ask for such a kind and wonderful doctor. I've recommended my family and friends to him.

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
