Amy Yu, M.D., recently joined Baptist Health as a board-certified neurologist and the director of the multiple sclerosis and neuroimmunology program at Marcus Neuroscience Institute, a part of Baptist Health, established at Boca Raton Regional Hospital. She is fluent in English, Spanish and Mandarin.
Before joining Baptist Health in 2023, Dr. Yu received support from the National MS Society (NMSS) as a Clinical MS Fellow at Columbia University in New York City to develop her expertise in the study and treatment of MS and neuroimmunological disorders.
In addition to her clinical work in neuroinflammatory diseases, particularly multiple sclerosis, Dr. Yu is also a diplomat of the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and member of the American Academy of Neurology. For her outstanding work in her field, she received the 2023 Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers (CMSC) MS Mentorship Forum Scholarship.
After earning her medical degree from the University of Vermont Larner College of Medicine, Dr. Yu completed her neurology residency at Yale University-Yale New Haven Hospital, also serving as chief neurology resident for a year.
While she treats many chronic, progressive diseases, Dr. Yu focuses on bringing new therapies and advanced treatments that help patients maintain and recover their health. By combining cutting-edge techniques with holistic wellness, she strives to provide evidence-based patient-focused care to the region.
“I am honored to partner with patients to diagnose and treat their illnesses so they can return to doing what they love,” says Dr. Yu. “From helping them cope with the stress of a new diagnosis, to overcoming barriers to living their best lives, I provide safe and effective care that reflects my patients’ goals.”
