I had the gift of a first appointment with Dr. Yip today. She was considerate, patient and knowledgeable. Dr. Yip spent quality time getting to know me and my symptoms. After the exam, Dr Yip took time to explain what she felt my symptoms were related to and suggestions on how to take care of myself. I highly recommend Dr. Yip.

Dr. Yip is excellent! Performed my bowel resection surgery in January 2019 and did a wonderful job. No issues or problems and the incision looks great!

Dr. Yip is knowledgeable and caring. I felt like Dr. Yip had my best interest at hand. I had a very big cancerous tumor in my rectum. Not only was she able to remove it, she was able to keep me positive with her direct plan to take care of my problem. I would recommend Dr. Yip to anyone who is concerned about having this type of surgery.

I had colorectal cancer. I was not diagnosed by Dr. Yip. I was blessed to be under the care of another Dr., for a completely unrelated illness ,who knew Dr. Yip. Dr. Yip was extremely thorough. She even found polyps that the Dr. who diagnosed me had missed. So grateful to Dr. Yip for being caring. I ended up having an ileostomy. When it was time to reverse it, I wasn't thrilled about having surgery again. Dr. Yip said it was happy surgery. She was so right! I highly recommend Dr. Yip!

Dr. Yip was very forthcoming, explained all options in detail, and was very thorough in her explanations. She performed several examinations, tests, and eventually a surgery. I couldn't have been happier with her care and attention to detail. Dr. Yip, her PA's and office staff were all terrific throughout the whole process. I'd highly recommend her!

Dr. Yip saved my life and I would never hesitate to recommend her to anyone that will listen. Believe me, I was not a great patient. I didn't want anything to do with any operations but Dr. Yip talked to me, calmed me, and explained everything so clearly I was completely relaxed and confident and the operation was a complete success. I owe it all to Dr. Yip and her team.
