    How was your appointment with Dr. Yu?

    May 16, 2022
    I have visited Dr. Yu for over 10 years not just because of his remarkable medical skills, but because of his empathy and patience. Before all of my gastroscopy and colonoscopy procedures Dr. Yu always makes sure to explain the process in great detail, but in a way that is easy to understand. After the procedure he will then give me a breakdown which includes photos where he explains them one by one. He also always does a great job of prescribing me the right medications for my symptoms. In my 10 years of visiting Dr. Yu I have never felt any fear before a procedure because he always goes above and beyond to make sure I feel comfortable. I have also never felt any pain after a procedure because of his great skills. He is a great doctor who I highly recommend. Thank you Dr Yu for looking after my health over the years!
