Before moving to the Emerald Coast, he graduated with a medical doctor degree from the University of Santo Tomas.

Dr. Yuhico received his fellowship training from the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, OH, specializing in critical care, diagnostic bronchoscopy and lung cancer tracks. He is also fluent in Filipino.

Dr. Yuhico is originally from the Philippines and was born into a family of accountants and businessmen. He didn't expect to become a physician, but found his true fulfillment as a young boy while helping people by volunteering. He then realized his true passion was in the service of people. Dr. Yuhico approaches every patient as an individual and respects each person's unique needs, hopes and expectations.

In his free time, Dr. Yuhico likes to wakeboard, fish, play tennis and basketball, watch movies and attend Broadway musicals. He has even done some acting, published poetry and directed theater performances. Dr. Yuhico had the experience of being the sole physician in a true international airline flight emergency, where he had to have the plane land in order to save a passenger's life.

Dr. Yuhico and his family are thrilled to live on the Emerald Coast. His wife and twin boys are enjoying the beauty of the Florida Emerald Coast and life by the sea.
