Useless and moronic doctor
I visited with Dr Yeam asking about how to treat my asthma and he told me to do yoga. That’s it. No inhaler or anything. Just yoga. This guy must be an idiot.

During my first visit Dr. Yeam told me that I need to use my CPAP/APAP machine throughout the entire night. Then he changed the setting on my equipment to much stronger airflow. Since ever he changed the settings, I am unable to use my equipment because the new settings give me intense pain and choking episodes in sleep. They are harmful and scary. I went back to him twice asking to reset it back to the original but it turned out to be a real problem. Either the original settings were not properly documented or the changes he made were not properly documented, the machine did not get completely reset and as a result it is useless. Now Dr. Yeam is telling me that I don't need use my APAP machine at all that I will be fine without it. Please note that within one month I received completely opposite recommendations from him: in October he recommends more usage and intensifies the airflow in my machine, in November he says that I don't need to use it at all. Which one is true?

My 1st visit I was very impressed with how thorough and caring Dr Yeam was. My New Patient appt was 1 1/2 hrs and it flew by. He asked many questions and got the names of my other Drs so he could co-ordinate with them to offer me the best course of action for my sleep problems. I am very much looking forward to working with him and feel confident that he can help me and offer me sound medical advice and a better life.

Dr Yeam changed my cpap mask and my machine's pressure after only knowing me for a few minutes. My old sleep Dr would order me to take a testing machine home for 2-3 nights before making any changes.

This was a routine followup visit. I am healthy but have reduced lung capacity and so of course shortness of breath. I am 78. I like to keep track of my pulmonary function and so want to be tested on a regular basis. This was the first visit since Covid. I was disappointed that I was unable to get a lung capacity test but he said: "We don't like to have a lot of blowing air around with the virus..." I understand.

I went to the ER at the end of June. They took a chest CT and said I needed to have a pulmonologish look at the chest scans they had taken. I brought in my own CD copy of the scan just in case the Dr. did not have it. When I was in his office he said he needed to look at the scan, and that he could not look at it now (my scheduled appointment time) because he did not have the time. He said that he could not load the scan file into my records because "they don't keep records"? Then he stated that I would have to leave my CD with his office, and that he could not promise I would even get my CD back. Finally I got him to look at the scan while I waited. He said that would take a long time. But low and behold he was able to load the image in just a few min. He said this was an issue of MemorialCare Medical Group. I guess they don't keep records. I found the whole thing to be very unprofessional and I will not be returning to this Dr.
