Dr. Yu's web site says he "believes that pain is a symptom, which is caused by various underlying diseases. Therefore, an accurate diagnosis is the key in resolving any painful condition.” Turns out that's not true. He relies on MRI and resisted doing any other tests I requested. Because I questioned him, he offered me no options for treatment for my SI joint pain, saying none would help me. $800 lost. Another doc sent me for PT, which has helped tremendously.

Dr Yu is very professional and highly competent. Initially he takes the time to listen to the patient then does his physical examination while explaining exactly what he is doing and why. He is personally responsive to any concerns. The experience is like no other medical experience I have ever had. You work directly with Dr Yu, he takes a very personal approach and shows an interest in you as a person.
