Ratings for Dr. Fang Frank Yu
Dr Yu performed a colonoscopy on me a few weeks ago. I had no problems or complaints. He was easy to schedule & see on the initial appointment, explaining the prep for the procedure & the procedure itself. The procedure itself was no big deal, he did it in the surgi-center located in his medical office building. I would definitely recomend Dr Yu.
I am 83 years old. I went to Dr. Yu because he was recommended by my HMO. I had the worst experience of my life during a routine colonoscopy. From the beginning of the procedure I was in horrible pain. I told the Dr. and his advice was to "breathe in thru my nose and out thru my mouth". He never checked the IV to see why I was able to speak during this time. You would think that a physician that performs these procedures regularly would know that the patient should not be speaking much less crying out in pain. If the patient is in pain maybe there's a reason she's even awake and complaining that she is feeling everything he does. He proceeded to complete the procedure(over 1 hour) and also removed 2 polyps. I received a call the next day from the Dr. to let me know that the IV was not working. NO apology, just the explanation of why I was in so much pain. Dr. Yu should be fined and reprimanded severely should be forced to attend classes to interpret complaints from patients.
I spent more time with the "insurance" lady than with the doctor. I was seeing him for outpatient surgery... No History was taken and the Doctor did not answer my questions about a procedure. Instead, he just shuffled me to the insurance gal. He then apparently left the office. So, the next day I called asking for a call back... I had a simple question that wasn't answered from my appointment. A young receptionist girl called back saying that the Dr. Yu told her that I needed to schedule a follow-up appointment! Unbelievable. So... No patient history taken, no time with Doctor, no answers to questions regarding a planned surgery... AND he's playing games to get more money from insurance for an unnecessary appointment.. ! This guy must be hard up for patients to play this kind of shenanigans. I don't trust him... Didn't use him for the surgery.
