What People Say About Dr. John Yee, MD
Reply Flag
Dr. Yee is the most knowledgeable, kind and caring doctor I’ve ever met. I consider having him as my husband’s doctor the best thing that could have happened. He never sugarcoated the diagnosis but assured both of us he would do everything possible to provide comfort and extend his life as long as possible. Whoever has him as your doctor, rest assured he is the absolute best!!!
