Patient Comments (4)

In August 2013 Dr. Yeh performed a thyroidectomy on me. The outcome of his reckless performance, is awful and has ruined my life. For those reading this, beware, Dr. Yeh has embellished his experince, and he is a young, very unskilled surgeon. There is no excuse for what he did to me. Dr. Yeh severed my laryngeal nerve, resulting in a paralyzed vocal cord. Furthermore, he left cancer behind, known as an incomplete surgery. He also damaged my parathyroids, which has impaired my calcium.

I wanted to have my thyroid removed (I chose this over other options) Dr. Yeh, was referred to me by another patient who had her thyroid removed by Dr. Yeh. She couldn't say enough good things about him, and I can see why. He is a god. You will not find a better doctor. I just ran across something where he was voted one of the top docs. He deserves it!

Dr Yeh beautifully removed my thyroid. I saw top surgeons in Los Angeles for this procedure. I heard from renowned doctors in LA that Dr. Yeh is known to be number 1. I can't say enough about how lucky I am to have been led to Dr. Yeh. He is not a surgeon who rushes to surgery. He advised of a new molecular test/biopsy that NONE of the other doctors i saw knew about! His warmth makes you smile, his intelligence and talent instill complete confidence,& i have a practically INVISIBLE scar!!

Worst doctor ever. He doesn't listen and care at all. You're on your own after surgery.
