Dr. Yu is amazing. He listened to what I had to say. He explained thoroughly what he thought was going on. We agreed on a starting point to help me. I was a referral to him. Being surprised that he went over my medical history before seeing me, I am pleased that he prepared for our visit. You will be very happy to have seen Dr. Yu.

Dr. Yu and and his staff are awesome! I never have to wait more than five minutes in the waiting area before my name is called. Dr. Yu is never in a hurry and takes the time to address all of my concerns. One of the things I love most about him is that he doesn't try to push medication on me. He actually tries to reduce medication. I can tell that Dr. Yu and his staff really cares about his patients.
