About Daniel Yu, MD

I became a physician so every day I can utilize science to improve the health and lives of others with kindness and compassion. As your family's pediatrician, I strive to be a friendly advocate for your child's health from birth to young adulthood. Listening to my patients and their loved ones’ concerns is one of my top priorities. Born with a cleft lip and having more doctor visits than the average child, I want children to feel included in their medical care. My practice is focused on evidence-based medicine, immunizations, and promoting healthy lifestyles. Outside of work, I enjoy surfing, pickleball, tennis, running, weightlifting, cooking, trying new restaurants, and traveling.

First time seeing Dr. Yu and it was an overall great experience. You can tell he's passionate about kids and explained everything well.

This was our first time meeting Dr Yu. He was so fun and I love the way he gave my 6 year old chance to speak for herself and navigate the visit more independently. He personally walked her down to get stickers. We have been long time obsessed with Dr Kubal but I couldn't have been happier with meeting Dr Yu and would be happy to see him again with my 3 kids.
