Associate Veterinarian

Dr. Yu is an Associate Veterinarian at Whitestone Veterinary Care and Animal Medical Hospital. She was born in China and moved to the United States with her family at a young age. She grew up locally in Bayside, Queens and always had an innate desire to help animals and felt that being a veterinarian was her true calling.

After earning her undergraduate degree at Cornell University, she went on to earn her doctorate at Purdue University’s College of Veterinary Medicine. She went on to practice in Minnesota for three years after graduation before returning home to Queens. She has been working at Whitestone Veterinary Care and Animal Medical Hospital for the last several years. 

Dr. Yu lives with her husband and Phenakite, an adorable White Syrian hamster. When she isn’t helping animals at the hospital, she can be found painting, drawing, and practicing archery and martial arts. She is also an avid Dragon boat racer.
