My surgeries with Dr. Yao include: Ulna reduction, both carpal tunnels, 3 trigger fingers, torn rotator cuff, multiple tears and damage in elbow, and a CMC Arthroplasty with tightrope. I am amazed at his attention to detail and I have no problems with recovery, PT or scarring. All things take time to heal and everything did exactly as he said it would. He is amazingly kind, compassionate, and explains in a way I can understand. One of my favorite Drs. ever. His PA Anne Owen is awesome as well!!

Dr. Yao is short with answers, condescending, and has no care for a persons pain and suffering. I filed a complaint, in his response he lied and I am pursuing it as a result. Please be careful and check his Stanford and YELP reviews, he is questionable.I decided to look up Dr. Yao’s reviews...I saw at least 8 patients (from 2014 to 2016) that had issues; "felt they were rushed", "unimportant" "did not take the pain seriously", "not much concern for the patient as an individual", BEWARE!!

he's a horrible doctor. he made me get an x-ray before even seeing me, when I had multiple x-rays and mris. he just wanted to put more money in his pocket. he wasn't helpful at all. didn't diagnose anything and he had no knowledge of wrist structure at all. I regret wasting my precious 2 hours waiting to see this phony. I do not recommend anyone to ever see this guy.

Regretfully, I had CMC arthroplasty performed by Yao 5 months ago on my right thumb. Beware before having this procedure that you fully read and understand the surgical indications. I have persistent pain which I am still taking oxycodone (Yao prescribed 130 for me) among other pain meds prescribed by pain management MD's. Along with pain, I have persistent stiffness, loss of range of motion, and incomplete resolution of symptoms, Please see Yelp review with pictures of right thumb.
