This was my 3rd colonoscopy performed by Dr. Yu and as with the first two everything was performed on time and professionally. Could not ask for a more successful procedure. And receiving the complete report with photographs when we left the office was a bonus we appreciated. Thank you Dr. Yu and your staff. James Ishihara

This morning’s procedure was done in a very efficient run facility. Dr Yu, Dr Dunn, and their staff were very safety conscious and I was treated with respect and consideration. I felt that all went very smoothly and am confident my biopsy will come back with good results from the lab. Thank you for providing me with the pictures from my procedure.

Everything from start to finish was as good as it could be. Starting with making the appointment with Jennifer. When I got to the facility everyone was extremely helpful and patient, even though they were all dealing with new protocols because of Covid-19. I don't remember all the nurses names but Olivia and the first prep nurse I saw tried hard to keep me calm (I do suffer from white coat syndrome). Doctor Yu was clear and calming in expaining the process. I had not met him, but I'm so happy that my primary physician (Dr. Cao) refered me to him. If any asks me I would absolutely recommend Dr. Yu. thank you all for making this experience as good as any colonoscopy could be.

I got an operation two weeks ago, they keep telling me they can not let me know without doctor's permission. So I've been waiting and anxious all the way until now. They still say they left messages for Dr. Yu. I still feeling very bad. I want to talk to the doctor but never have the chance. When I ask the lady's name who spoke with me, she even hang up on me. (ext.3) Can you imagine what kind of experience you will have!!! Good reviews can make you blind. DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS ONE!!!
