Yu Yang, MD, PhD, Psychiatrist in Forest Hills
I am a board certified general psychiatrist from the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. I completed my psychiatric residency training at the prestigious Icahn School Medicine at Mount Sinai and psychoanalytic fellowship at New York University School of Medicine. I began psychiatric career at Elmhurst Hospital Center, and currently I'm serving as an attending psychiatrist in the state hospital psychiatric center. I have extensive and rich psychiatric experiences from practicing in private clinic, the hospital and emergency room settings as well as medical research for the past decade.
My individualized care is to meet your expectations for treatment. I will help you to relieve your stress, fears and to promote your confidence to live a happy, healthy and productive life. My therapeutic approach is to combine contemporary psychopharmacology with the most effective clinical psychotherapy updated yearly by American Psychiatric Association.
My private clinic is in the center of Forest Hills near the renowned Continental Avenue and Austin Street. My office provides a safe, private, comfortable, and relaxing environment. Our location is convenient for parking, and accessible by subway, buses and LIRR.
