    I have had multiple endoscopies and a colonoscopy all performed by Dr Yu and he is just wonderful. I’ve never had any post procedure problems and I am informed about the outcome of the procedure prior to leaving. The center is very nice and the staff are friendly, helpful and very competent. I highly recommend Dr Yu.
