They were unprepared for my visit. They didn't call to confirm my appointment. I in fact had to call twice to confirm. They never followed up like they said they would. I needed a referral that the informed me of while sitting in the dr's chair.

His front desk/nurse/assistant was great. Very professional, friendly, attentive. She gave this office some personality as Dr. Yu is straight to business which is good since he focuses on the patient. I also love, love the fact that he has appointment availability times.

The doctor didn't have much personality, and his staff was AWFUL, from the beginning, when making the appointment, right down to signing in, its like they didn't want to be there. Very unpleasant, I won't be back!

Dr. Yu knows his stuff, but his bedside manner and compassion for how a patient is feeling and what they are experiencing is horrible! I feel it's important for an MD to connect with their patients in a more compassionate way and with sincerity.

He is very knowledgeable. No waiting time. The only recommendation is personality/likability on a pt to MD level. Very nice guy though. Recommend him.

He seemed to care about my past history as well as taking the right steps to evaluate my allergies properly. That was better than just being prescribed another medicine. I will be seeing him again.
