What People Say About Dr. Kan Yu, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I am 77 years old and have probably been to well over a hundred doctors in my lifetime. I have NEVER seen another in any specialty that provides the degree of care that Dr Yu gives his patients. In addition to being a really great neurologist, he is caring and compassionate. He makes himself available to his patients and takes care of their concerns at just about any time. His caring attitude is also reflected in his office staff. They are friendly, helpful and simply the best ! Robert M Rice 4/

I have been struggling with migraines since 2010, after I was hit by an IED. For several years, I tried to get them under control and eventually gave up when nothing was working. In a moment of desperation, I looked up migraine specialists and found Western Neurology. They were able to see me within 36 hours. I am thoroughly impressed by the entire staff. Dr. Kan Yu quickly assessed the situation and developed an action plan that included aggressive medication and physical therapy.

Dr. Yu is and his staff are excellent. He is thorough, knowledgeable, and took time to answer all questions I had during my appointments. He was easily available, and promptly reported lab results to me. I felt very confident in his knowledge at a difficult time. His staff is friendly and accommodating.

I initially met with Dr Yu in 2017. I was immediately impressed with his professional approach and quick understanding of my problem. He prescribed the precise medications for my problem. I continue to meet with Dr Yu for follow ups. He is always courteous and wants to make sure I am comfortable with the meds.

Dr. Yu is the VERY BEST! I saw many Doctors before Dr. Yu & had some really bad experiences with Dr's. who didn't care about their patients. Dr. Yu is DIFFERENT, I credit him with saving my life over 7 years ago when I had a medical procedure that went very wrong; became disabled & didn't want to live. Dr. Yu possesses all the critical traits that make him an Excellent Doctor; most importantly a sincere desire & genuine passion to help his patients. I remain a devoted patient. Thanks Dr. Yu!!

I am very pleased with my experience over the years with Dr Kan Yu, MD PhD. As I have matured over the years I can be a hard critic of Physicians and their staff. Combine this attitude with an innate crankiness when a medical issues arise the result can be much less pleasant. Early on, I recognized that his care for my personal health and well being was a world away from experiences elsewhere. I feel very comfortable to be treated with his professionalism and care with his personal focus on Me!

Dr. Yu saved my life. I suffer from VERY bad migraines. Other doctors wanted to just pump me full of medications that didn't work but Dr. Yu took his time and listened to me. I explained how I have 5 children that I can't spend any time with due to the pain being so bad. I have been seeing him for a while now and all he wants to do is help to make me feel better. I have never met a more caring, honest, down to earth doctor. Thank you so much Dr. Yu!

I have seen Dr. Yu for a problem relating to my head. At the last visit, he always concludes is there anything else or any other questions. I mentioned to him that I have a lot of spasms from my neck to my right shoulder. This is pretty much a chronic condition. I have seen several specialist including the pain clinic and everyone's solution was one of three pills. Dr. Yu offered another choice. Botox injections. He did multiple injections and by the 3rd &4th days, the spasms were almost gone.

I have been a migraine sufferer for over 25 years and Dr. Yu is the first doctor that has been able to find me relief. I would highly recommend him to anyone that has migraines, as he has a deep understanding of treatment plans. He never makes me feel rushed and spends an ample amount of time with me during visits. He has a good bedside manner and takes the time to listen to my concerns and needs. Office staff is friendly, helpful and personable.

Dr. Yu has saved my life multiple times since 2011. He always takes time to review my tests thoroughly, orders additional test if needed, has caught misdiagnosis from other doctors. I have multiple serious health conditions, he can quickly and always correctly diagnose my new symptoms, never rushes to explain things to me, makes me feel informed. Dr. Yu and staff have worked with my ins. when things weren't covered and got coverage. Correctly completed and sent my disability papers.

I have been seeing Dr. Yu for 6 months now and could not be more pleased. He cares for his patients and is very knowledgeable. I normally do not write reviews however after seeing what others had written about him not caring and not taking time I had to set the record straight… Dr. Yu does take the time needed with each patient. I have never left there feeling rushed or didn’t have all my concerns answered. After 6 spinal surgeries he has been the only Doc to help with headaches and nerve pain.

I saw this so called specialist one time which was a waste of time, fuel, and breath. I had to drive 150 miles from Overgaard, AZ. to attend the appointment. My primary care physician faxed plenty of medical information,symptoms, and the fact that I had been a victim of a traumatic brain injury, as well as brain stem damage which resulted in a major word clarity hearing problem. This person didn't even take time to look over my file. He was speaking 60 words per minute, and was in a hurry.

LACK OF CONCERN FOR PATIENT! I saw Dr Yu for a couple years. He's a very drug pushy kind of Doctor, seemingly without validation. No tests, no questions, just "let's increase the dosage" and I experienced this with nearly every visit. After moving away from AZ I sent a questionnaire my disability attorney asked me to send to all previous doctors. I received a call stating Dr Yu would not fill out the questionnaire because I was no longer a patient. Money is his only concern, not patient care.

I have been seeing Dr Yu for well over a year for neuropathy. He is not only extremely competent and knowledgable, he is compassionate and understanding of what you are experiencing. He tells you the truth and explains the treatments available. He has always gone the extra mile in personally returning my phone calls the same day and listening to my concerns. He always asks if there is anything else I need and treats me as the whole patient not just the immediate symptoms. Good Dr, good man!

I have been seeing Dr Yu since 2009. He has treated me for headaches caused by valley fever, correctly diagnosed a stroke that the ER did not see, and continues to treat me for headaches and high blood pressure. His staff is always helpful, whether I need a refill or need to see him right away. I have never waited more then 5 minutes for my appointments. I wouldn't go anywhere else and highly recommend Dr Yu.
