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.

Dr. Yee is a God send to me . He has repaired my knee and continues to keep me healing . I can’t say enough good things about how his healing hands changed my quality of life . I’d give him 10 stars if I could . The office staff is wonderful and tends to everything with care and compassion . If you have a problem with your knees , this is the man to see !

Dr. Yee was a good--attentive, helpful, and knowledgeable. The billing dept. for this company is terrible, though--stay away! They overbilled me and, when I caught the error, stonewalled my repeated (dozens) of contact attempts, hoping I'd go away. Denise was particularly unhelpful. Case with Better Business Bureau filed.

I'm a pharmacist in Palm Beach County and have had the pleasure of knowing and working along many great physicians. When I needed the care of an Orthopedic Surgeon I chose Dr. Yee because not only is he an excellent doctor but he's extremely kind, and explains everything. The Medical Assistants and the entire staff in his office are also extremely professional and welcoming. I highly recommend Dr. Yee.

I have been seeing Dr Yee for years. As a competitive athlete injuries happen. Doc understands the athlete mind and mind set. He will get you back to your sport as quickly as possible. Super nice man and a great injector of medication to joints. I send every one to see him.

Dr. Yee was very busy and only spent a few minutes with me. His staff are very hard to reach! I waited on the phone for long periods. The MRI wasn't scheduled correctly and I had to call the office to reschedule and after all the trouble I decided not to get the MR. The medication I got didn't help much and was over priced!! My shoulder in time healed naturally.

I am a Dr. myself. My tennis friends had had successful knee surgeries with him. I was having knee problems from too much tennis and age. Dr. Yee diagnosed minor meniscus damage, but told me I didn't need surgery. He recommended a non-invasive intervention that has continued to work 8 years later!! I play tennis all the time, and never had knee surgery! How great is a surgeon who doesn't push surgery if you don't need it!? I recommend Dr. Yee to all. He is conservative interventionist!

This is the most caring and compassionate Dr. you will ever visit. I see Dr. Yee for a shoulder problem and he has done a magnificent job. He listens to you and doesn't give up on you. I had 3 different opinions prior seeing Dr. Yee. His expertise and compassion was the reason why I chose him to be my surgeon. I highly recommend Dr. Yee to anyone. You will not find a better orthopedic surgeon. He gives you the trust and confidence you want to receive from a Doctor. Thanks Dr. Yee!
