My experience from speaking with the office on the phone , welcoming me into the office for check in process, drawing my blood at the lab, and most importantly meet with the Dr was all excellent. I have not met a personable doctor In a while and I am so happy that I came across her on Zoc Doc and was able to get a same day appointment. Dr Yu contacted me at home later that day to make sure that I had enough of my medication which meant a lot to me as a patient and I look forward to having her as my doctor for as long as I need one.
