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!
