I went to the emergency room with bad stomach aches and serious nausea. I found out i had a blockage in my intestines. Thank God Dr. Yu was on call. He came in and seen me and told me i needed surgery, and it was probably colon cancer this was on a friday and had me in surgery on saturday morning which i thought was unusual. Surgery was done and all cancer was removed by Dr. Yu. This man was wonderful in the way he talked and explained things to me. Great Dr. and great person.
