She was absolutely amazing!!! Very detailed! She asked awesome questions! I loved how she approached things with my son! She explained his responsibilities for healthy sleep habits and walked us through all of her thoughts on how to help him! I loved how she explains things!! Can’t say enough great things about her and her team!

We just met with Dr Yu. we have never done a tel a medicine appointment, it was so easy.... let me tell you she complimented my son so many times. She formulated a plan, told him his responsibility and explained to my son why sleep is important to his health. She answered so many questions and put my son at ease....

We are so happy to have found Dr. Yu! She took a lot of time with us and answered all of our questions (and we had a lot!). Her nurse and staff were terrific! Our son is doing so much better. Be ready to be asked a lot of questions. We appreciated this but maybe those who did not like this wrote the less than stellar reviews? We can’t understand the people who did not rate her highly. We think she is wonderful and one of the best we have worked with.

Wonderful Doctor in Fredricksburg, VA – Jan 30, 2019
I do not recommend Dr. Yu. She seems cold/insensitive & extremely rude/disrespectful. She literally yelled at my husband & I many times. She was asking us questions & when we tried to answer we'd only get a few words out before she would interrupt us by yelling "STOP!" at us very rudely, so her or her nurse could write/type what we were saying, & she did it over & over. A nurse at another office warned us about her personality before we went & said most people won't go back after the 1st visit.

My son was referred to Dr. Yu for sleep issues. After three weeks of waiting to get his appointment scheduled, we received a phone call from the office of the referring doctor saying that Dr. Yu refused to see our son. The explanation we were given was that Dr. Yu felt our sons problems are behavioral and he should seek help elsewhere. She did not have the decency to call us directly and she has not returned our calls. We have no explanation of how she made this determination. Not at all happy.

Dr. Yu is a top notched physician. She spent so much time with my daughter and myself to ask many questions and review what had been done. Her sleep and breathing are now under excellent control and I am grateful that my friend recommended her to me.
