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!
