Dr. Peter Yu is absolutely amazing. My Son had appendicitis two weekends ago and thankfully Dr. Yu was on call that weekend! Dr. Yu not only did an incredible job removing her appendix through her belly button with no other incisions, but he got out of the surgery room coming to us to assure everything went well and showed us a picture of the incision and procedure after only 20 minutes. As a worried parent there can't be any better and more caring surgeon. Thank you doc.

Dr. Peter Yu is absolutely amazing. My daughter had appendicitis two weekends ago and thankfully Dr. Yu was on call that weekend! Dr. Yu not only did an incredible job removing her appendix through her belly button with no other incisions, he also had the best bedside manner of any doctor I have ever come in contact with over my lifetime. He was kind, informative, and professional. My daughter had her two week follow up today and she is back to 100%. I cannot recommend him enough!

Our daughter was born what is called a diaphragmatic hernia. It was not detected by ultrasound, so it caught us by surprise. She was immediately taken to CHOC NICU to get treatment, where we met Dr. Yu. We went over our options, and decided to go with latroscopic surgery (camera based). I'm happy to say that everything went as planned, and our daughter has made a full recovery. Scars are nonexistent! I couldn't recommend Dr. Yu enough. His staff was there with us every step of the way.
