I was seen on time, instantly comfortable (even naked!!), I felt like the Dr and the Nurse listened to me and didn't dismiss my knowledge of my body. Dr Yu is the 1st NEW OB I've seen in 30 years. I've been a OCWMG patient forever & insurance changes brought me here. I'm gonna stay with no reservations about my care. Cheers...Stacee

I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Yu for my second pregnancy. She was compassionate, professional, and always available to answer my questions in person or via the online portal. She took into consideration my concerns, especially as an expectant mother during the coronavirus pandemic. Her office staff was also very helpful and supportive. I feel fortunate to have Dr. Yu as my OB/GYN and would definitely recommend her to others.

Brittney Cook – May 30, 2020
I would not recommend this doctor. I regret not doing my research before choosing obgyn. On the first visit, she could not look me in the eye. She lacks knowledge and professionalism. The medical staff were all new and did not know how to do anything. They messed up my appointments, sent wrong lab orders, lost medical records and even handed me someone else’s medical records. Each visit, either the doctor or staff messed up.

I love working with Dr. Yu and the entire staff. They were super concerned about making sure as a patient I was safe during this pandemic. I was given a specific mask to wear when I arrived, the waiting area allowed for social distancing and the staff was fantastic as always. I love Dr. Yu and am so happy to have her as my obgyn.

Dr Yu almost cost me my life during a surgery . She was assisting Dr Sternfeld with my surgery and didn’t stitch me up . Upon recovery my hemoglobin was too low so hey had to put me back to sleep and stitch me up. Do not use her if you are planning to have surgery.

Please do not take this doctor if you are looking to have a smooth delivery. She seemed like she supports your decision when you first meet her , but then changes into this condescending, rude and disrespectful person when your due date nears. She has horrendous bed side manners and quite frankly no compassion or whatsoever. Please avoid her at all cost,she is truly a horrible doctor and not very knowledgeable in her field.
