My wife, who has advancing Alzheimer's, fell at home and broke her hip. As the attending orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Yi came to us by luck. We could not be more pleased. He met with us a day prior to surgery, clearly explaining the hip condition, the options available (pinning, partial or full replacement) and the reasoning for each. The day of surgery, he spoke to me re her condition change (bone had rotated) necessitating the partial replacement and that it would take 60-90 minutes. 50 minutes later he reappeared, explaining a successful procedure. He communicates perfectly, is obviously extremely competent, and is pleasant and friendly.

Dr. Yi was extremely friendly, compassionate and helpful with my shoulder arthritis and resulting degeneration. He remarked early on that surgery would probably be required at some point, but was always willing to try steroid injections until I felt I was ready for surgery. After surgery the results have been amazing. i'm still working on rebuilding strength, but my range of motion without pain has increased dramatically. I'd recommend Dr. Yi to anyone without hesitation.

My experience with Dr. Yi was excellent. Had pain in knee for a while at local fast treatment got x-ray refereed to ortho. Found Dr. Yi and based on reviews, qualifications, and philosophy went to him. He looked at x-rays and felt knee indicated torn ligaments and arthritis in knee (news to me) Drained knee & injected cortisone shot which helped Immediately. After three weeks at follow-up appt. knee much better. Acts up again told him I'll be back.

I went to the Emergency Room one night back in February 2018 and the doctor there who treated me recommended I make an appointment with Dr Yi, which I did. After several visits that included a cortisone shot and an MRI, I was diagnosed with a torn meniscus. I decide to have the surgery to repair it. The surgery absolutely changed my life. I was extremely pleased with my short and easy recovery. My knee is fine now and I still can't believe how painful it once was. I could not thank Dr Yi enough

I was recently referred to Dr.Yi for a labreal tear in my hip. He’s was very kind and took time to explain things to me. I was so pleased by the office staff and their friendliness as well. The medical assistant Shayita Wilcher was so kind. Dr. Yi’s secretary Michelle was so very helpful and kind. I would highly recommend Dr. Yi to my friends and family!

Dr. Yi was the surgeon on call at the hospital I went to after a bicycling accident which left me with a badly broken elbow. He explained everything to me and also my mom who was in the lobby since I couldn't comprehend much due to the anesthesia. After the surgery he made time to fit me in for an urgent appointment when I became concerned about something. He was always very patient and explained everything. I am now back to normal with only some minor muscle soreness that will heal in time.

Dr. Yi worked with my son who dislocated his shoulder. He was very attentive and able to provide a clear explanation and physical therapy plan. After about 3 months, I can say that my son is back to "normal" even though he chose not to go forward with surgery.

Went to Dr Yi for left hip pain. After some questions and manipulation, I was diagnosed by him with Bursitis in my hip joint! He gave me a shot in hip and soreness subsided almost immediately. He also provided comprehensive exercises to avoid a return of this pain. Totally satisfied with his professional care and suggested treatment. Days later hip feels fine. Many Thanks. Highly recommended.

Worst Doctor EVER! Told the office that I had two areas for the doctor to look at when I came in for my appointment. No problem. When I got there, he said that he could only look at one area at a time and I would have to schedule another time for the other area. When I pleaded with him to just take a moment to look, he said that he was too busy. There was nobody in the waiting room! Extremely arrogant and rude! He just wanted the extra $50 copay when I came back in for the other area.

I had tried other options for repairing my right knee which had degenerated quite a lot and was painful. I met with Dr Yi after having an X-ray. We looked at it together and he advised me to have a full knee replacement. I had the surgery in November and I followed the exercise instructions. It was painful for a few weeks at the site. It is February and I am practically back to normal - about 90% improvement. I made a wise decision to have Dr Yi do the surgery. He did an excellent job.
