Dr. Yang is on of the best doctors I have ever met. He puts his clients need above all. I recently had surgery by him yesterday. He walked me through it with ease. His nursing staff are also amazing and they hardly ever leave your side. It was such an amazing experience and it was my first time getting any type of surgery. Thank you so much. I highly recommend Dr. Yang if you are looking for the best there is!!!! John Wallace

Terrible. He refused to continue prescribing my normal pain meds for my disabling nerve pain condition, and not only that, he suggested an alternative medication, gave me a sample and a prescription--and then NEVER DID THE PRIOR AUTHORIZATION, SO I COULDN'T EVEN FILL THE PRESCRIPTION!! I also called his office twice and left messages, never answered. Awful, patronizing jackass.

This doctor was one of the worst dr's and office experiences I have had. Over one hour waits, AND three injections to my neck - for three months which didn't solve the problem. Went to a new neurosurgeon, who said he had done the injections in the wrong place! Merely because he was educated at J. Hopkins doesn't make him an excellent doctor... I am a psychologist and quite familiar with the medical community.

Dr. Yang provided outstanding care related to recent back illness. His office is organized, he, his nurse practitioner, physician assistant and office staff are knowledgeable, thoughtful, and clear communicators. Visits are timely, procedures are scheduled in an efficient manner. He has the respect of his peers, the surgery center nurses and other specialized members of the medical team. Follow up visit are through, his interest and commitment to my full recovery was sincere and appreciated.
