Front desk was busy, but helped me right away. Doctor was on time to appointment and very professional. Asked about the extent of the examination and available tests for me to take. Waited for me to make decisions and helped me through questions without any pressure.

Dr. Yu is very thorough, and takes the time to think through all the possibilities before coming to a conclusion. She listens to your concerns, and doesn't rush you out of the room - rare and hard to find in a doctor these days!

Dr. Yu was the most inattentive doctor I have ever met. First off, I had to wait 1hr and 10 minutes for the appointment that lasted less then 10 minutes.. (even though I scheduled this 2 days ago). She did notcheck the medications' name that I recently used, even though I had them with me and expressed my concern that it might be the cause of my problem. She basically did not even greet me, no hi/hello, no apologies for waiting (and this was my first visit). While taking notes she was standing next to a door, so I felt like she wanted to just walk out, and she did at one point (!), because she held a package of meds and had to hand it over to someone, and she did that while I was talking to her and describing my symptoms.. she was out of the office for just seconds but it seemed very unprofessional, as I just felt I was not being listened to :( Dr. Yu might be much better with other patients, and maybe it was not her day, but for me that was the worst encounter with another doctor that I've had so far.

I did not know that my appointment was rescheduled so it took longer than usually. Next time, I will call the office personally to schedule. I waited about an hour to see my doctor.

She was not very attentive. She stood at the doorway the entire time! She barely entered the room, and spoke to me from across the room.

Dr. Yu was very professional, and took the time to listen to my concerns. She understood all my medical conditions, and was able to refer me to the proper specialists. At the end of the exam she was not rushing outthe door she stayed and made sure that I did not forget anything or had any further questions. Too many Doctors these days do not take the time to talk and listen to the patience, that is why I choose Dr. YU and I highly recommend her.

I was really lucky to be able to make an appointment a day early with Dr. Yu (might be somebody canceled on that day but not recommended). It's my first-time there, and everything is straightforward. Although I have filled out theform on the zocdoc, i was still required to fill out the a couple of forms after signing in with front desk. The appointment is on time, and Dr. Yu is really professional and did make good recommendation regarding my health. Will come back when necessary.

Very thorough, took the time to listen to and address concerns. Appointment took a long time but that was because Dr. Lu gave us the time we deserved and didn't try to rush us out.

I just went in for a physical. My first appointment was at 3:00 pm. By 3:30 I asked what the hold up was and why I hadn't been seen yet, and the receptionist informed me that she was running 35 minutesbehind. After 45 minutes I left because I had a work call at 4:00 pm I had to be on. I rescheduled to come back the next morning at 10:30 am. I was told I would be her first appointment of the day so I would be taken right away. Fast forward to the next day: I get there at 10:25 (having not eaten all day, as I was fasting for the blood work) and I do not see Dr. Yu until 11:40. Apparently, she had seen a walk-in patient before me. Wait times like this are unacceptable, especially knowing the patient is waiting to eat until after being seen! Dr. Yu herself was fine, she was nice and apologized for the delay. But I will not be going back; I can't risk wait times like this as a working professional.
