Dr. Yang is a great doctor, she really pays attention to your concerns. In my case she took the appropriate steps to do my colonoscopy since I have an existing heart condition, she made sure I will be fine during my procedure. Thank you Dr. Yang

As others described she was very vague and unattentive towards my concerns. I spoke with her for a total of 10 min and she detemined that I need an endoscopy/ colonoscopy on the same day. She never explained the procedure with me and rushed me off to the appointment staff. I still had more question but when i tried to talk to her again the front office told me i couldnt anymore because she was with a new patient. I called and calls were not retuned. Getting a second opinion.

Dr. Yang does not explain diagnosis, test results or procedures thoroughly or with clarity. She is vey vague with her responses and attentiveness to any concerns. She does not return messages. It is very difficult to speak to a live person when calling the office since their phones are operated by an automated telephone answering system making it inconveniently difficult for patients to address any concerns, questions or make appointments.

This was by far the worst experience with a doctor I've ever had. Prescribed anti depressants after normal upper endoscopy results - what?! And an over the counter probiotic written on the back (the sticky side) of a post it. The post it that was on my file with my name on it so she wouldn't have to bother and open the file to know my name.
