About Dr. Susan Yu, D.O.
I believe that each of us has an innate healing ability to find health. I am an osteopathic physician board-certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. I take care of adults and children using a traditional osteopathic and functional medicine approach. My mission is to partner with patients and their families to find the root causes of disease, to find health through nutrition using food as medicine, Biodynamics of traditional osteopathy, yoga, and lifestyle medicine.
Prior to starting Brightly Integrative Health, I practiced in a successful and fast-paced large group practice specializing in musculoskeletal medicine. Over time, I found that I was most effective and felt most rewarded when I helped my patients heal with a holistic approach, listening to the patient, and taking care of their acute injury as well as their chronic conditions.
