Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

Helped me with chronic back pain and discomfort. Could not ask for a better outcome! Remember surgical intervention is never a 100% guarantee so I am thankful for his and his teams hard work! Hope to never have to use his services again... but I will not hesitate to call on him in the future. He also did surgery on my 73 year old Father with excellent results. Thank you!!!

Good results with foramenotomy to relieve a pinched nerve, I could feel it healing over the month after the procedure. Great to be free of pain and weakness.

I’ve been an RN for 37 years, the last 10 of which I have worked with chronic back pain. I was told my back and spine were held together by scar tissue, Today I am regaining full function of my back and legs post back surgery with intervertebral cage placement. I cannot say enough about the skill level and professionalism of Dr Yeh. I highly recommend him!
