Patient Comments (1)
in Oakland, CA |
I met Dr. Yu when she worked at Kaiser. I had fallen off my bike and had a torn ligament on my hand. She preformed my surgery and now, three years later, my incision is barely visable. Even better, I have the same range of movement in both hands. She is amazing! She was so patient in answering all of my questions both before and after the surgery. I felt very lucky to have met her and been under such good care. You will be in good hands if you need an excellent hand surgeon, trust Dr. Yu.
