Our son needed his tonsils & adenoids removed plus ear tubes put in. We are not surgery type people and tried for 2 years to help our son naturally and with meds with no luck. Dr Yium was amazing. Not only with our child but with us. Right when we met him we knew our child was safe in his care. Our son his thriving now and we couldn't be more pleased.

As a patient of Dr. Yium's for about a decade, I've found the care he & his team provides very professional & courteous. He & his staff are patient to answer questions & do what they can to ensure patients are comfortable & informed. I appreciate that Dr. Yium takes time to ask questions & listens. In the previous office, the wait time in the waiting room, for afternoon appointments was unreasonably long, but have since deliberately scheduled appts for morning & haven't encountered long wait.
