    I have brought my dad to three appointments. He came in for the initial consultation, spent ten minutes and said wait here so we can schedule for echocardiogram and stress test. Nearing 5 o'clock, two hours later, we asked if the next appointment had been scheduled, the Secretary said, oh my gosh we forgot about you! We spent from 8 to 430 to get the the echo and stress test done in his office. For the heart Cath he is currently running 3 hours late and counting. Has never explained anythin

    My cpc referred me to see Dr. Yao for chest pain. He saw me the next day and arranged for immediate cauterization and found a very bad blockage. The blockage was so bad that it could have caused a major heart attack. The blockage was treated and I was back home in 24 hours. Dr. Yao truly saved my life!

    I had my first visit with him and his staff today. I really was impressed. I will definitely keep him as my cardiologist. He was going to run late and the nurse called me the day before to let me know that. I was impressed. He went over all of my test results with me. Very personable.
