Dr Yu did my Rhinoplasty last week, and I could not possibly be more pleased! Dr Yu and his staff are incredibly professional, but personal and genuinely kind and loving- they give such individualized care and attention, that you feel as if you are their only patient! The facility where he does his surgeries was on-time, very comfortable, sweet and caring staff, and they really care about how you're feeling and your comfort levels before and after surgery. For decades I was too afraid to let anyone operate on me, especially on my face, and was very apprehensive about the pain/discomfort after the surgery, but Dr Yu is so skilled that I was comfortable the entire time, even when removing stitches! I couldn't believe how comfortable and relaxed I was, and how easy he made it for me! Dr. Yu is so talented, so amazing, my results are better than I had even hoped for! The entire experience was one like I have NEVER had with any kind of doctor/doctor's office!

From the initial appointment I knew this doctor was the right doctor for my lip lift surgery. Great vibes and real positive office atmosphere with no pressure. I am 11 days post op and couldn’t be happier! He’s precise, provided super results and informative. Highly recommend, he will treat you right.

After a lot of research, I decided on the procedures I thought I needed and shopped around. Dr. Yu was kind enough to let me know I didn’t need the bleph I thought I needed and he explained why then told me about a much less expensive procedure that worked out perfectly for the aging skin below my eyes. I trust him and he did excellent work.

Dr Yu and his staff have been very professional. They were very accommodating scheduling my appointments due to my irregular work schedule. I’m pleased with the results of my procedures and would definitely encourage anyone interested in cosmetic surgery, to give Dr Yu a visit. I don’t believe you will be disappointed.

After a search for a procedure that I needed Dr. Yu was a perfect choice for me really friendly from the first day at his office then at the hospital where we did the surgery and the follow ups went great every time and his staff always friendly and helpful, and the price compare to others was lower another second reason I choose him. 12 months after surgery and I’m happy! I will keep choosing him, thank you to my God healing process went great and thank you Dr. Yu.

He was nice but is extremely over priced and he also lacked any knowledge on newer techniques and procedures now being done. $100 consultation fee is a rip off. Short visit and he seemed in a rush to leave.

When I scheduled my appointment , I was given the impression that Dr. Yu did hair transplant. Unfortunately he doesn't. Had I been informed prior to my visit, I would not have wasted my time, nor money. I was not looking for any alternatives, I was specific when I scheduled my appointment.

found dr. yu online while researching lower blepharoplasty. finding that dr yu specialized on facial procedures and had a military background made him the right surgeon for me. after meeting with him, making the decision to go forward with the procedure was easy. the experience as a whole was wonderful with his professionalism, amazing staff both up front or at bedside assisting w/ the procedure and smoothness of the procedure itself. I'm two months post op and happy with the results. Thank you!
