Dr. Peter Yu is absolutely amazing. My Son had appendicitis two weekends ago and thankfully Dr. Yu was on call that weekend! Dr. Yu not only did an incredible job removing her appendix through her belly button with no other incisions, but he got out of the surgery room coming to us to assure everything went well and showed us a picture of the incision and procedure after only 20 minutes. As a worried parent there can't be any better and more caring surgeon. Thank you doc.
