Dr. Yeo and his staff are compassionate, caring professionals who helped me and my family get through a difficult, scary diagnosis of IPMN. Throughout the consultation, he put our minds at ease and thoroughly explained my condition and expectations. Additionally, his witty banter and approachable personality made my wife and I thankful he was the doctor managing my care. Yasoo!

I found Dr Yeo online when I was looking for a second opinion regarding my splenectomy. And I've been more than happy with his service and care. The first time I met him, he took time to go over my case and to show me the organs on the CT scan which was extremely appreciated. I just had the splenectomy and gallbladder removal a week ago and I am now back at home. Everything went well and I've received extremely good care. I would definitely recommend Dr Yeo to anybody.

Best doctor I have ever met! He is confident, kind and brilliant. He tries to do the least invasive procedure possible. I had my pancreas and spleen removed on Monday and I am home on Friday...amazing surgeon! His staff is also amazing. I would recommend him to everyone!
