I would recommend Dr. Yu to anyone searching for a neurologist. Dr. Yu is professional and personable. He made me feel at ease during my examination and spent several minutes educating me on my diagnosis and offering treatments. It's not often that physician is so accessible. Whether it's by phone or email through the patient portal, Dr Yu has always gotten back to me the same day. The front staff and nursing staff are very proficient and friendly.

I thoroughly not only trust Dr. Yu with my life, I also ENJOY my visits to his office! He is extremely personable, fun to speak with, is definitely knowledgeable about his field, and spends plenty of time with me during my visit; I have never felt rushed.

Due to the fact that I am leaving the country shortly, they got me in really quick. I was very impressed with his knowledge of any possible sleep disorder I might have. They also scheduled me quickly for the lab. I feel comfortable that he will resolve my problems. This had to get better one way or another.
