    Dr Yu was my provider in Toronto while studying at the CMCC. He provided the best care. He was capable of focusing on the injury and issues at hand while considering other complexities I had as a human being at the same time. Although he was a student at the time, I felt he was already practising as an incredible clinician/pratictioner. I’m sad that he left Toronto and miss him very much. Victoria residents are very lucky to have him. I know he will continue with his success as he continues to provide amazing health care. All the very best. Kathleen Frame, Toronto
