Specialties

Dr. Michael S Yu has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

Dr. Yu is great!

Dr. Yu is very patient and takes time to know all his patients. As first time parents, everything can seem overwhelming and intimidating. Dr. Yu is extremely professional, caring and patient.I come with all my questions and he take the time to listen to them and answer all of them. I have always received a return phone call within 1 hour and rarely have had to wait more than 15 minutes after arriving for an appointment. I have called with a sick kid and he is always available to see me the same day - even on Saturdays! Dr. Yu is very genuine and I can tell he has a passion for his profession. I will, and have, recommended him to many friends and family. I am very fortunate to have found him as our pediatrician.

My Experience

Saw this doctor couple of times. Both times Dr. Yu only spent 5 minutes with my child. He seemed to think that being ill is no big deal. As moms are concerned, I believe it is important to get all questions answered and not feel dismissed. Anyways. Nice, courteous staff, but definitely changing doctor.

Blah!

This doctor does not respect the opinions of the parent when it comes to making health decisions for the child. As a parent, I have the RIGHT and responsibility to accept or deny treatment that I feel uncomfortable with. As a doctor, your job is to advise and explain. I feel that this doctor when faced with opinions that oppose his, instead of respecting my decision, he makes me feel stupid. Also, he tries to force procedures on my daughter that were even deemed not routine by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Yes, I do my research. I will never recommend him to any parent who is conscientious and involved with their children's care.
