Medicine is an art that combines the magic of science and the gentleness of human compassion. The purity of children’s imagination, their amazing resilience, and hopeful spirits never ceased to inspire me, and drew me to pursue a career in pediatrics. There is nothing more special than having the opportunity to build relationships with families and to guide the physical, emotional, and spiritual growth of a child from infancy to young adulthood. My priority is to partner with each family to meet their child’s unique personality and medical needs while practicing evidence-based medicine. I seek to become a trusted advisor and friend to families for many years to come.
Dr. Yu grew up in Plano, TX, and says she is a “Texas native through and through!” When she is not working, Dr. Yu enjoys spending time with her husband, daughter and son, as well as attending church activities. She can be found cooking, sipping on milk tea, watching Disney movies, cheering on the Dallas Mavericks, or exploring the area’s outdoor and food scenes. Dr. Yu’s favorite area locale is Mt. Bonnell in Austin – “where my husband proposed!” They return often to enjoy the beautiful view of the hills, water, and city skyline.
