Specialties

Dr. William C 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.

Worth the hassle

Dr.Yu is a very knowledgeable and I have taken both my daughters to him. I often thought of changing doctors because of the ridiculous wait times. I know now that I would stick with him. My 3 month old baby had a very high fever with no other symptoms. We saw another doctor in the practice but she couldn't identify the problem. The next day we went back for a visit and Dr Yu identified that it could be meningitis. The doctors in the ER were unable to diagnose and treat correctly and we lost precious time. Dr Yu has great instincts based on years of experience. He also spends a lot of time explaining your child's health to you. You do not leave his office befuddled.

Good Doc, if you're willing to wait

We have been using this practice since we moved to the area and Dr. Yu is by far the best most competent of them all, however the wait time is abominable. We just went today and we were seen by the Dr. an hour and fifteen minutes after the appt time and this wasn't the first time, in fact in the last few years we have found that 30 minute wait is the minimum . It is insane and the receptionists always just roll their eyes and tell us that we are next in line whenever we've complained. Today they even tried to charge us for a balance that wasn't ours and they only accept cash and won't see you until it's paid. We're lucky that I keep my receipts. We would have just walked out after an hour but unfortunately we had a sick child that needed to be seen so leaving wasn't an option. I really Dr. Yu but I am afraid we will have to switch b/c of the horrible wait time and service.
