Specialties

Dr. Hong Yu has the following 2 specialties

  • Psychiatry

    A psychiatrist is a doctor with specific training in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness.
    He or she can not only provide the counseling necessary to both diagnose and treat a patient, but can also prescribe medication when needed. In some cases, a psychiatrist will only provide the medication and the counseling will be provided by another healthcare specialist, like a certified counselor or psychologist.
    Like other doctors, psychiatrists employ diagnostic tools like CT scans and MRI in order to observe the structure and function of a patient's brain.
    Once a diagnosis is made, these specialists may use behavior or cognitive therapy in order to address the patient's condition, or a multitude of other types of therapy, in conjunction with or in place of medication.

  • Neurology

    A neurologist is a physician who diagnoses and treats disorders of the nervous system which is comprised of the brain, spinal cord and nerves. These doctors do not perform surgery, but refer patients to neurological surgeons when they determine that surgical intervention is necessary.
    Some of the conditions that neurologists diagnose and treat are epilepsy, aneurysms, hydrocephalus, Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal disc herniation, and spinal disease.
    In addition to using diagnostic tests like MRI, CT scans, EEG and EMG, neurologists also employ neurological testing to gauge muscle strength and movement, balance, reflexes, sensation, memory, speech, and other cognitive abilities.

Willing to Listen

After 2 other doctors discharged my adult son when he was not stable (back the next day), one of which refused to meet with us, Dr Yu sat down and listened to us. She is determined to get my son to a stable condition before discharge despite his relentless focus on leaving the hospital. She is matter of fact and direct when he demands discharge and tells him "you are not ready". I find her more than willing to work with and listen to family and staff.

Terrible

This doctor saw my son for less than 5 minutes in ten days discharged him from the hospital with a diagnosis that stops him from getting help from anyone. Please save your child do not let her care for them. I called and spoke a total of less than 5 minutes.in 10 days .
