Verified Patient Reviews
I think Dr. Yu was very understanding of my condition and sincerely wants me to get better, unlike some doctors who just throw medications at you hoping that one sticks. I've seen a lot of neurologists and he is, by far, one of the best.
He is very popular. He is smart and knows just what to do. I really like him.
I was very pleased with my first visit with Dr. Yu. He will be a very good replacement for my NY doctor.
Office was great so helpful in every way. They made you feel so comfortable and answered all questions I had And helped me so much
If I could give six stars I would. Dr. Yu was very intuitive, polite, had a good sense of humor, and was very willing to listen to my concerns. He is willing to research my symptoms and find the best treatment for me without bandaiding my concerns. I am so thankful I found him. He gives me faith in the medical profession once again.
He was very knowledgable and listened to me and my family. Loved him!
