I was seeing another ENT Doctor, for my sinus and was getting no where, other then being told I would have to live with my condition, that's when I switch to Dr. Yu, the best decision I ever made Dr. Yu spends the time with you , and makes sure you understand, your condition. Dr. Yu performed a CT image guided sinus procedure on me, she was outstanding made me feel so comfortable, and relaxed, called me the next day to check how I was doing what Dr. does that, I highly, highly recommend Dr. Yu

I have seen 3 other ENT's and many other DR's and NONE are more diligent than DR. Yu-Syken. She is pro-active, and spends alot of time listening to patient's needs and symptoms. Dr. Yu-Syken personally followed up getting lab results, while being put on-hold for 10 minutes. No Dr. does that! She has moved offices to a more efficient staff in Huntington Beach.
