One Star

I find the doctor very rude, makes you wait long periods of time. Spends little time going over things with you. Never asks if you have any questions. If you refuse to read his prayer card out loud he gets up and leaves the room. I do not appreciate asking if I have Jesus in my heart or trying to force me to read a prayer. That kind of stuff is for church. He makes me very uncomfortable, I think his staff is very rude, if I had a choice he would not be doing my surgery. But this is where I have been sent. I am not looking forward to this surgery simply because he makes me so uncomfortable. Would not recommend him to anyone. Not impressed in the least.

Great Doctor

I have had two surgeries preformed by Dr. Yu over the last 15 yrs. I have been more than happy with the results of both. I have recommended him to friends who have been equally impressed.

Was impressed with wealth of knowledge and compassion. Is doctor to many Olympic athletes and travels and trains with the athletes. Was impressed to be given as an everyday athlete the same care as an Olympian.
