Patient Comments (4)
Roseville, CA |
The wait time is unbearable . . expect to wait at least an hour and more likely 2 hours before you're seen. The lobby was so full patients were standing outside of the waiting room because there was no place to sit down. One person sat on the floor. He is so over scheduled that it is impossible to ever keep an appointment on time; he is overbooked. As far as a doctor, he is nice but not very thorough and should probably retired. I will NOT be going back to this Dr. if I have a choice.
El Dorado Hills, CA |
I had an appointment with Dr. Yee today. He discovered a condition that has been a problem for me for over 2 years, and has a plan to correct it. He has a great bedside manner and I was pleased with the way the staff treated me as well. I would definitely recommend him.
Placerville, CA |
Slow and chaotic, his office and staff are frequently running behind schedule. It's really frustrating. Doctor seems competent. But the experience is aggravating.
San Rafael, CA |
