Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Yu "When I was in medical school, one of my mentors provided a critical piece of advice that I distinctly remember and that I adhere to today. The best way to provide the best care for your patients is to treat every single one of them like family. I have always been drawn to the sciences since early childhood.  I could tinker for hours with my chemistry set or with broken devices around the house.  This fascination with how things work ultimately led me to the biological sciences and the desire to understand human physiology and medicine.  During medical school, I wanted to engage in research firsthand with the goal of contributing to the wealth of scientific knowledge.  But after obtaining my PhD, I realized that I missed the human connection and specifically was drawn to pediatrics.  I knew that I wanted to be a physician scientist to help bridge the gap between research and patient care."
