The best Dr Ever!! Dr Yee
Doctor Yee is the best, always so kind, nice & professional , he takes his time to listen to you and does his best to help you solve your problem, I fell from the stairs 4 years ago as a result of my fall, my knee began to hurt a lot, I was visiting two other doctors and nothing, I didn't see the slightest interest in me, Looking for the best doctors in Wellington, Dr Yee came out and I went to see him, since I met him he inspired me a lot of confidence, a complete professional, his team makes you feel the best like home, first class care, and best of all, the facilities have a physical therapy place with Dr. Carmecita, the best, I have done my therapies in a pool with warm water, the best, Also Dr. Yee's team, they are super flexible and taken out twice appointments from one day to the next !! Thank you!! wow, definitely recommended the best shoulder and knee doctor in West Palm Beach!

Fingers Crossed
It’s only been 24 hours since my appt. But my fingers are crossed that I will get relief. Everyone that I came in contact with at the office was respectful, helpful, caring, and upbeat. I am 73 with worn out knees and thought for sure I was headed for replacement surgery. Not yet! Dr Yee explain some alternative procedures that I’m willing to try. The gel injections were a tiny bit painful but he was quick and it was over in seconds. I start water physical therapy next week as well. This morning I was able to get out of bed with much less pain and stability and that hasn’t been the case for months. It’s a beautiful thing and I am hopeful.

Didn't show up for my appointment - which was long standing. No way to reach anyone - no way to leave a voicemail - he might be a good doctor but how would I know? Never saw him.

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!
