I walked out of the appointment after waiting almost two hours. The assistant named Ming tried to get me to commit insurance fraud by writing in my chart that I had gastro complaints in order to get approval for a pre-bariatric surgery endoscopy. The facility was dated, dirty and the staff was incredibly rude.

I had my gastroscopy done by Dr Yao in 2016. After it was done, Dr Yao never asked me to come back to see the lab studies, and I assumed it was ok. It was until recently, after my new doctor requested my 2016 lab report, and he told me that I had H. Pylori Bacteria infection in my stomach, for which I shld have been informed by Dr. Yao last year and have it treated it immdiately. However, Dr Yao had done none of that, luckily it wasnt a severe disease, but thereafter, I WILL NOT TRUST HIM again!

The Doctor is amazing He knows what he's doing He's the doctor of my Husband I recommended him to my son and myself. True there's one staff with a terrible accent but if you don't understand each other call again and fortunately you'll get the right person of course there are days that has a long wait bec he has many patients that's a good sign I guess

His staff is poorly trained and very unprofessional. Let's see, forgot to send script to pharmacy, forgot to remind patient to use enema before operation on hemorrhoid, forgot to remind patient to stop using prior prescription after operation on hemorrhoid. You have to ask them, and they are too busy and give you an altitude to make you feel stupid.

Very bad service in booking and service. Every appoint I made never on time and had to wait at lease 1 and 1/2 hours. The attitude of ladies work there is bad. The same appointment time have several patients. You have to go back for report and wait another hours for 5 minutes!!!!! They have 2 offices, the worst is the Flushing office!

Bad experience. Poor bedside manner. Did not look at me when speaking. Inadequate review of results with me. However, the most shocking was when he told me that he saw a mass in my body via ultrasound but it is not a problem. Meanwhile, I was being treated for cancer for that exact mass/tumor he was referring to. I immediately showed him reports from other doctors and he seemed embarrassed. After that, I will not be returning to this doctor. I am not able to trust his judgement!
