Dr. Yen is the best ENT. He was polite, caring, and professional. He took the time to listen to my concerns and he took the time to answer my questions and he covered all pertinent topics that I might have has a question about. He explained my conditions, surgery and recovery. He truly is one of a kind dr. I would recommend him to anyone who has ENT issues. He truly cares about his patients. As soon as he walked into the example, my mind was put at ease. His staff are top notch too.

Dr. Yen is a very astute person who anticipates questions one might ask ahead of time. He'll often say something like. "You might be wondering"... (and then supply his patient with questions about their individual concerns) thus eliminating the need the patient to formulate all of their questions themselves. He'll then promptly answer the question(s) explaining, in layman's terms, exactly what information means for them. I appreciate this since it is sometimes difficult for me to come up with questions that pertain to my particular condition. His recommendations are not pushy, his concern is real, and his offer of immediate attention, should I feel I need it, seems genuine to me.

I have been seeing Dr. Yen for over 6 years now. In the beginning at least once a week for about a year, then monthly. During that time I have never heard him or his staff speak disrespectful to any one, either patient or staff. Also during that time I never saw Dr. Yen carting his lap top into an examining room. He leaves it in the counter by the nurses station. The patient who was complaining so much should really find so other Dr to lie about.

First, we waited an hour and 15 minutes for Dr. Yen to see us. While we were waiting my daughter and I could hear him being disrespectful to what we assume was a nurse in his office. When he came into the room he was angry that Vanessa had told us to find our own physician for my daughter's hearing aid. )I am not sure why he was angry with us about that.) But when I explained to him that we were there for a Septoplasty consultation recommended by Vanessa and my daughter's neurologist Dr. Yen became even more agitated and even pushed the nurse aside in haste trying to get to his laptop. He was abusive and RUDE toward his staff and to us and even yelled at us as we walked out that he was going to terminate us as patients (in the hallway in front of other patients and staff). Can you say HIPAA violation?! Not to mention that he NEVER examined my daughter and admitted that he did not review her file before he saw her today. NEVER have I ever been so disrespected by a doctor!Give him a 0!

I have been a patient of Dr. Yen's at BENT for several years. I have the utmost respect for him, his practice and his personal care over this time. Whether in his office, or under his surgical care I have always received excellent attention, thoughtful recommendations, and logical approaches to managing my health needs. Dr. Yen always takes the time to explain my condition to help me manage my care and feel my best. I have also received excellent care from on-call doctors Brown and Jaworek.

I am someone who has dealt with chronic middle ear disease, (bilateral cholesteatomas and multiple surgeries) since I was 3 years old. My childhood doctor set the bar for me as to what to look for in an ENT doctor. I was heartbroken when he told me he was retiring. After going to several other different doctors from age 12-20. I found Dr. Yen in Bethlehem. I can tell alot about a doctor by the way he tugs on my ear. Dr. Yen is patient, kind and honest. Highly recommend him to anyone.

Dr Yen himself is a great doctor however his staff took my thyroid blood test and filed it. After repeated phone calls to the office for weeks I was called back by a rude nurse, at dinner time!, and I was so upset that I couldn't get medical advice for an adverse blood test results after so many calls that I told her I couldn't talk and hung up. Never heard from them again. They told me they take my health insurance but are now threatening me with collection action!Very unpleasant experience,

ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE! Staff is rude! Trying to get a simple answer is impossible. The answer I got back doesn't even match or make sense to the question I asked. Tried to get information about someone that was in the hospital for surgery and not going to be released until after surgery. The anesthesiologist needed information from Dr. Yen but won't call directly asked me to call instead, his reply was "I'll make time to see her in the office." That makes no sense!

Worst Doctor I have ever had to deal with. VERY RUDE! Made us wait 2 weeks for Biopsy results and when asked about it was told " your mother isn't the only one with cancer". Needless to say, we found another doctor. My mother has since passed away....I wonder if the 2 weeks of waiting made a difference????
