Santa Cruz, CA |
Dr. Yien definitely spends the time with her patient (me, at least), but she is kind of condescending. I left her office feeling like I'd just been talked to like an idiot. I am pregnant and cannot get an appointment with an OB for 6 weeks, hence my visit. After I left Doctors on Duty I got a phone call from a pharmacy I don't go to saying that my prescription for birth control pills was ready for pick up. Good talk, Dr. Yien. Way to make Harvard Med proud!
