I was referred to Dr Yu by a fellow trial attorney who had done extensive research on the surgeons that were renowned for their technique and low complication rates: I looked no further than Dr Sherman Yu. As a nurse practitioner and an attorney I wanted the very best and I received the best. I had no complications after surgery. Dr Yu and his staff are responsive and simply put the best. I highly recommend this surgeon of impeccable character and reputation. Joe Flores JD APRN 100+wt loss

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
