“The opportunity to practice cutting-edge cardiology, including cardiac imaging, and to be in a collegial, supportive work environment-which was apparent during my first visit-are just a couple of the reasons I chose to come to Essentia Health,” shares Dr. Yu. “I looked through multiple other cardiology opportunities and none compared to the opportunity with Essentia Health.”

Dr. Yu earned his medical degree from the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA in Los Angeles, Calif. He did his residency at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine Internal Medicine in Baltimore, Md.

“I discovered my interest in cardiology as an undergraduate studying the biomechanics of the heart and blood vessels,” shares Dr. Yu. “During my fellowship training, I completed a year-long elective preventative cardiology clinic that specializes in lipid disorders, statin intolerance, hypertension and women’s cardiac health.”

Dr. Yu assures patients, “I will put forth my best effort to provide you and your family with the best medical care. I will treat you the way I want my doctor to treat my family and me.”
