I would not recommend going to Dr. Yu and I will not be returning. She was very dismissive of my health concerns. I feel that she didn't hear me out and was just going through the motions as far as addressing my issues. I left very disappointed. I have never been to a doctor that made me feel as disheartened as she did. The receptionist and nurse were very nice and welcoming and the over all office environment were fine.
