Dr. Ian Yu's Ratings
Waited an hour to see him, he just take 15 minutes to quote the price for the treatment only, paid $174 for 15 minutes talking with this doctor
Make you appointment and show up an hour late as he over books
I found Dr. Yu friendly and helpful at the beginning but following surgery, as a positive outcome became more and more unlikely, he became less helpful and more cranky. I eventually had my foot operated on again by an orthopaedic surgeon and the result is fantastic. I would keep looking if I needed to have foot surgery.
Waited for over two and half hours only to be scolded for taking up too much of his time(less than fifteen minutes) when I asked some questions. Very poor attitude. Didn't care for the lack of cleanliness in his offices either. Have found another podiatrist.
Was referred by my Podiatrist for Extracorporeal shock wave therapy. Three 10 minute treatments for just under $700 and no improvement. That hurt.
This Dr. is all about maximizing cash flow. He has average knowledge but be prepared to wait and be processed in the mill.
Time is an issue at this office!!!! You wait & wait!!!!! As of Sept/2011, it was decided that I needed surgery. The Dr. forcasted March/2012---I got a call in May for a surgery date 2 weeks away.I had already booked a trip and couldn't make the date. I begged NOT to be put at the bottom of the surgery list. Every few months I would phone into the office to try and find out my status, and would get the same answer every time. By Sept/2012, I was fed up with waiting!!! My life had been on hold--pending this operation!! I seeked out another Dr., and am happy to say that my main problem has been solved WITHOUT surgery!!!!!! I feel like I've wasted money & time with Dr. Yu. Oh, and to this day I have not heard from his office, re: my surgery date!!!!!!
I have found this doctor to have good knowledge and patience explaining things to me as a patient. His sterile technique is very good (I'm a nurse and watch carefully how doctors perform). My only beef is that I wish he would find a more modern, spacious and cleaner looking office. Doing sterile technique in his present surroundings (although done correctly), seems to contradict the procedure. This might help his clerical staff to be more efficient and not to overbook so that patients have to wait long for their appointments. This is a real issue here in this office. I come from out of town aiming to be on time for my appointment.....and then to have to wait another hour for the doctor to see me is very frustrating.
