Medicine is an
art that combines the magic of science and gentleness of human compassion.
Children’s pure imagination, amazing resilience, and hopeful spirits drew me to
pursue a career in pediatrics. There is nothing more special than having the
opportunity 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.
