  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

One Star

I had chosen a Dr Slattery, but Dr Yu is who saw us at the hospital and he kept trying to get us to schedule our next appt with him (Dr Slattery & Black, he's taking your patients). I had an uneasy feeling, but my husband wanted to go with him. He seemed nice enough our first appt. After waiting about 45 min in the exam room for 3 appts, hearing the same stories about HIS family every time, and our concerns getting brushed off as no big deal I decided to switch. Should have switched sooner, but it's a pain to change Dr's, so save yourself the time and go with someone else now. At my son's 2 month appointment I asked about the shape of his head, and Dr Yu said not to worry (that's literally all he had to say about it). Our new pediatrician said he has torticollis, gave us exercises to do at home, and sent us to a physical therapist. Had Dr Yu just given us exercises to do, we would not be paying to go to a physical therapist right now and it would already be corrected. Dr Yu also left a lot of scar tissue when he did the circumcision, which our new Dr said could be taken off if it doesn't get better by 1 yr. I definitely don't want to put him through an unnecessary surgery, but I just wish Dr Yu would have done it correctly for my son's sake later on.

Proud Mother

Dr. Yu is very personable and knowledgeable. We connected with him immediately and found common interests our first visit. Sometimes I have to pull my husband out of the office as him and Dr. Yu could talk for hours about KU Jayhawks. Dr. Yu is irreplaceable!!!

Great Pediatrician!!

After reading the last review I thought...there is no way that this could be the same Dr. Yu that my kids see. He is awesome and my kids love him. I almost feel that he is family. I would never consider "chunky monkey" to be an insult and I could see him saying that because he is very fun loving! We switched to Dr. Yu when my kids were in middle school. They instantly connected with him. I remember them talking about their favorite Gatorade flavor and thinking he is got a knack for connecting with kids!! No wonder his patients love him. I referred several friends to him as well and they feel the same. One day I happened to bring my kids in at the same time as one of my friend. We laughed and said it's like old home week! As my kids moved into their teenage years and had several sports injuries he was right their guiding us through those tough times. My older son just went off to college and we're going to have to find an adult doctor. It makes me sad because he has been such an important person in their lives. My younger son is thinking about going into medicine and I can't help to think that Dr. Yu had a significant influence on that decision. Dr Yu is that doctor that you always hoped you'd find for your kids. I am so glad i did!!!

Concerned Mother

I took my newborn to Dr. Yu for his 1 month, 2 month and 4 month checkups. I chose him because I heard what a great doctor he was. The first visit I had an uneasy feeling. I couldn't quite put my finger on it, but told myself to give him a chance. The second visit my baby weighed 10 lbs and he called him a chunky monkey (he was far from chunky) and said that we are feeding him too much. I asked about acid relux and he said his spitting up was because we were feeding him too much. Again I had the uneasy feeling and he was very rushed and showed no interest in my son. So we cut back the formula like he said. His spitting up got worse so we went back a week later and saw the physicians assistant who said he was a classic reflux baby, and put him on meds. At his 4 month check up Dr. Yu again was very rushed, rude and again no interest in my son. He rattled off to start giving him cereal (mixed with water) twice a day. My son weighed 11.9 oz at 4 months. Dr. Yu was never concerned about his weight. I asked if I was to give him his formula as well and he said no. I thought that was strange and called back later to confirm and the nurse told me the same thing. I switched doctors and at my son's 6 month check up with the new doctor he weighed only 12 lbs. He was very under weight and malnourished because we did as Dr. Yu told us to do. After switching I found out that this is not the first time someone has experienced this with Dr. Yu. Below are some comments that I received from a few other people about him. 1. We've used Dr Yu for 9 years and LOVED him in the beginning. I do think he has gotten entirely too busy and has "lost" his bedside manner that we so much appreciated in the beginning. 2. We switched from Dr Yu too, I just always felt like he wasn't actually interested and his nurses weren't the nicest either. I took Jackson to him 3x in one week because he was having trouble breathing, they didn't do anything or run any tests and the nurse told me I had no reason to be upset and to let whatever he had run its course and call them the next week. That was my last straw and we switched. He ended up having a respritory infection and ear infection. 3. I saw Dr. Yu once and I hated him and never went back. He was in a hurry and not interested in all in my daughter. 4. When I picked up all of my sons records for the new pediatrician's office I talked to the office manager and let her know why we left. But I don't know that that really matters to them, what's one patient when he had hundreds? And I never heard from them again, if they truly cared I would have expected a call to apologize. If there have been so many problems then why aren't more parents making complaints. This man needs his license revoked!! Had I not went with my gut and switched doctors, God knows how sick my baby would be. His new doctor was LIVID as was I. People, PLEASE if you have had problems with this man you need to report it.

One Awesome Doctor

When I had my first child over 8 years ago, I had no idea who to use for a pediatrician and randomly picked Dr Yu as he was a newer doctor and was trying to build his practice. He had come to my childbirth preparation class and seemed nice enough so I thought why not? Boy am I glad that I chose him, because he is a wonderful doctor. He has always treated me with respect and care and really loves children. My kids love him and he patiently listens to them babble on about whatever it is they want to talk about when we go visit him. My only "complaint" isn't really about him, it is just that he is extremely popular now, so it is harder to actually see him, but his nurses and the ARNPs in the office are just as wonderful, so no big deal if I have to see an ARNP instead.
