SHC Patient, Mar 2020

I have had only kind and good experiences in this office

SHC Patient, Jan 2020

Dr Yu is an exceptional doctor. Glad I found her years ago.

SHC Patient, Nov 2019

Dr. Yu is a model physician. She always takes time with me to go through my concerns. It is such a blessing to have a doctor who I connect with.

SHC Patient, Nov 2019

Excellent verbal communication, attentive of concerns and sound health advice.

SHC Patient, Oct 2019

I chose Dr. Yu as my care provider not only because she can communicate with me in Mandarin but because she is really a very professional and knowledgeable doctor to help me solve health problems that have long puzzled me. She has always been nice and patient to me. For my last appointment, she had actually to squeeze me in by coming thirty minutes earlier to the clinic because of my rather urgent health problem. I feel extremely lucky to have her as my care provider. Our sincere thanks to her.

SHC Patient, Oct 2019

I have a very high level of confidence of my care provider and in her interest in my health. she asks questions and allows me to ask or comment on my health on any concerns I have. gives me very clear and understandable answers to question and makes sure that I have understood any medical instructions or recommendations

SHC Patient, Sep 2019

This care provider is excellent, but already extremely busy.

SHC Patient, Aug 2019

Dr.Grace Yu is an excellent physician. She is by far the best PCP I have ever had in my life.

SHC Patient, Aug 2019

Dr. Grace Yu carefully reviewed my medical history and ordered everything I need for a thorough test of every aspect of my health. Because she speaks and understands Mandarin, I have no problems to talk to her about my health problems in details for her to better understand which is the nest medicine and treatment for me.

SHC Patient, Jul 2019

Doctor is kind of hard to get appointments with.

SHC Patient, May 2019

My Care Provider, Dr. Grace Yu (PCP) is the GREATEST!

SHC Patient, May 2019

My MD and I have an excellent patient doctor relationship. I could not be in better hands!

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

Dr Yu is a very caring doctor; detailed but clear

SHC Patient, Dec 2018

Dr. Grace Yu is my primary care doctor. She is a friendly, professional, and experienced physician. She gives a very detailed report of an after visit summary and keeps a systematic and up-to-date medical record of the patient for comparative reference. It is always convenient to reach her through the portal. Every time I contacted her online, I could receive a ready and satisfactory response to my request. She emphasizes the importance of preventive care and provides a helpful dietary guideline particularly relevant to patients with a risk of hypertension. I'm very happy to have chosen her as my primary care doctor.

SHC Patient, Jul 2017

I feel like the doctor only gave me info when I prompted for it. Would prefer doctor to be more proactive.

SHC Patient, Jul 2017
