      Dr. Yu was my son's psychiatrist during a 2 week stay at the inpatient psych unit at SCH. He is 14, and has autism and an anxiety disorder. Dr. Yu did a great job reviewing his medications and removing medication that had become a problem. As a result, my son is doing much, much better. We have our happy kid back! Dr. Yu saw my son for the person he is, did her best to understand him, and had a strong respect and concern for him and our family. It's wonderful to find a provider who could really see my child underneath all of the problems he was having. I'm very grateful to Dr. Yu for her excellent care.
