I received excellent care under Dr. Yin for a knee injury. He was incredibly thorough from assessment through post-op. He took the time to answer all of my questions and to explain my treatment options, plan of care, and post-op rehabilitation program. I would highly, highly recommend him to anyone needing orthopedic surgery, he's a remarkable doctor.

Dr Bob Yin Has just performed full knee replacement on both of my knees simultaneously. He was extremely professional, thorough, and accommodating through all the intervals pre, during and post operation. I experienced no pain besides the swelling when I left the hospital and I was walking without support 3 days after the operation. I cannot thank him enough and I fully recommend him because of his top qualification in his field

Dr. Yin was the best I could have asked for. I had a bad break three places in my ankle, and he did an excellent job of surgery. It is healing extremely well and quickly, and I am grateful for his work. I feel lucky to live so close to such an excellent orthopedist.
in Cerritos, CA |
Dr Yin is an outstanding physician. My story begins with an appointment for a broken thumb, for which I got scheduled for surgery the next day. Through the 8 weeks after my surgery, I saw Dr Yin about 5 times, and in each visit, he was compassionate, easy to communicate with, and incredibly knowledgeable and thorough in answering any questions I had. I couldn't have asked for a better doctor. The office staff was also very nice, and its a huge plus that the X-ray facility is right next door.
Very comfortable,knowledgeable, straight forward does not beat around the bush.
in Brea, CA |
Dr. Yin is very knowledgeable in his field. He thoroughly diagnosed my knees and educated me on what the causes may be and solutions that will help remedy the pain.
in Placentia, CA |
I could not be happier from the overall service I have received from Dr. Yin. His professionalism, bed side manors, taking the time to explain everything regarding the knee and surgery. Today was my follow up 4 week visit. My knee has never felt better. I have been to other orthopedic doctors over the years and Dr. Yin is by far the best I have seen! Would not think of going anywhere else.
in Yorba Linda, CA |
The care and attention that Dr Yin provided our son who had a torn ACL was exceptional. He took all the time needed to educate us on the options and keep us informed through every step of the way from pre surgery, surgery and all the post surgery recuperation. We never felt rushed by Dr Yin. He provided undivided attention our son's questions and care. Dr Yin was extremely responsive to questions that arose after hours and immediate responded to emails. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Yin.
