Santa Cruz, CA |
I met Dr. Michael Yen a week ago, when I had an urgent concern about a potential blood clot in my calf. As my familial history includes a blood clotting disorder, any symptoms in that direction are worrisome. Dr. Yen fit me in the same day, as a first time patient, and patiently spent :30 with me not only ruling out a blood clot, but talking out loud through his decision tree of trying to sort out what was causing the symptoms on my leg. Thorough, knowledgeable, accessible. Recommend.

I love Dr. Yen! He is very articulate, concise and approachable. He diagrams his explanations and options and also takes the time to discuss patience concerns. He is available through his office and his cell. I am also able to email him at any time. All of my concerns and questions have been dealt with timely and efficiently. He is positive and well skilled at his craft.
