Ratings for Dr. Ian Yu
I had a bunionectomy and 6 months later the bunion was wose. He had used the cartilage from my bunion to fuse my toe joints as well and ended up making the bunion worse .. I would never recommend this doctor to anyone.... cost me $200.00 for each visit as well
I had a Morton's Neuroma removed at the end of May, 2016. It had been a problem for me for over 20 years and everyone else I had consulted recommended conservative approaches. Sadly, none of them helped. Finally, after being unable to finish a round of golf due to foot pain, I contacted Dr. Yu's office for a consultation. Dr Yu has a fountain of information and is happy to answer any questions and provide clarification. You do not feel rushed when you are with Dr Yu--he will spend as much time with you as you need. Dr Yu described alternative approaches but in the end I decided on surgery to remove the neuroma. The surgery was done in his office. From my perspective, the room was sanitary and safe for the operation. The operation went well. I had a problem with after care (I managed to soak the operated foot) after hours and Dr Yu arranged to meet me in his office late in the evening to redo the dressing. It is now 3.5-4 months post surgery and my foot has healed well. Within days of the surgery I was able to walk 10K a day (multiple short walks). I was kept waiting for both my initial consultation and the surgery appointment but all follow up appointments were on time. I discussed time management with Dr Yu and he said he is working on it. Clearly there is tension between giving a patient all the time that they need and making sure you stick to a schedule.
He is always late! Stop double booking your patients. I understand that nice bed side manner is important to him, but small talk about nothing relating to my foot is not necessary, especially for busy folks like me. Threevusits for me and my shortest wait was an hour. Not cool. Thats why we make appts!!!
Oustanding! The appointment was late because he is so popular. However, I have not seen a doctor in any country or discipline with such interest. He took copious notes at the beginning, asked me everything about my feet, related lifestyle, shoes etc. Studies my feet and even sent me away with a list of recommendations (a summary) of our visit. He did not rush the appointment at all and answered every question. I would recommend him to anyone with a structural issue. I was told "you must see Dr. Ian Yu". I am telling you the same thing. See him. To those who say "he loves money", I disagree. Dr. Yu is worth the investment and he will tell you what you don't need. Instead, he will send you away with lifestyle changes, stretches, etc. His wall is littered with qualifications for a reason - he is worth every penny.
My last podiatrist had to leave Vancouver and she recommended Dr Yu. He's been nothing but helpful and has been super amazing dealing with my diabetic foot problems which are horrific different issues on each foot. I love dr yu I think he's generally concerned about each of his patients and makes time to be there
It cost me $179.95 for a 45 minutes consultation with Dr.Dr. Yu on 11/18/2015 I was wondering why he was so keen in listening and talking so much. A that price ($179.95 an hour), ...now I understand!!! If you are ready to pay more than the average anywhere else? ...consult Dr.Yu!!! He loves money.
Your firs mistake is going to see him,i been seen him since 20 10, on 20011 i had MRI done i had possible impingement in my right ankle he never he didn't said that to he said there's something growing on my foot.now that i can verly walk or stand is like he doesn't know what to anymore your on your own because he is not even supporting me i been off work since 2013 .i had another MRI on 2014 from another because he wouldn't even send me to do one the MRI shows a possible foreign body on my left foot And it saids have to look for it but he hasn't mention anything to me after espending thousands and i mean that even plantar released surgery that didn't fix my problem he still ask me if i wanted surgery on the left .but he hasn't even find out what's the MRI showed.now i will lose my job that i worked for the last 23 years.he is not supporting me who will hire someone that can barely stand And walk with no education now I'm on my own when I'm homeless i will go in front of his office asking for money see if remember me. because at this time he can do anything for me anymore.
