When I took my fiancé to Dr Ye she was having about 15 seizures a month with no help from 2 previous neurologists. In the last 10 years she’s had only 3 seizures. We are now married with 2 healthy children and Dr. Ye is a huge part of that. I can’t understand why anyone on here could give this man a poor rating. When he saw my wife with the children he couldn’t stop smiling or telling her how proud he was of how far she has come. Truly a great Dr and a great man

The worst most obnoxious. Arrogant doctor I’ve ever met. Don’t bring your loved ones too him.

Office is poorly managed. Appointment times don't matter. I had 11:15 appointed (arrived at 11am), called in at noon, put in the Lab. waited until a tech put me in an exam room, was not seen until Dr came in at 12:30. For some unknown reason patients scheduled after me were seen a head of me. I didn't leave the office until after 1pm.

He is by far the absolute worst Neurologist I have encountered in over 40 years of being a nurse and 18 years as a Nurse Practitioner. He is clearly a bigoted, unprofessional and doesn't even do thorough Neuro exams. His oversights during my hospitalization at Winthrop resulted in an avoidable infarct that he refused to/or was unable to make the correct diagnosis of delirium due to dehydration. Patients BEWARE..Plz request a different neurologist if you happen to be unlucky enough 2 b his Pt!!!

Extremely rude, horrible and unprofessional. I was sent to Dr. Ye as an emergency consult for severe headache, dizziness and vertigo. As a cardiac patient on blood thinners my doctors were worried about bleeding in my brain. After a six hour wait to talk to the staff as you have to leave your number and a message and they will call you back at their convenience. An hour wait for doctor then another 30 minute wait alone in exam room. Unfriendly Doc and all he did was laugh at me. Take these pills

Dr. Ye was one of the first doctors to recognize my adult seizures as a form of epilepsy. Though I am overdue for a follow up and need my medicine level checked, that is my procrastination, not his

About Me

Biography

Helping people and saving lives had always been my childhood dream. Becoming a neurologist has made my dream come true.

Neurology was always particularly interesting to me. I specialize in neurology and particularly in epilepsy diagnosis and management. I have additional interests in diagnosing and treating patients with headaches, memory problems, and attention and hyperactive disorders. As a trained neurologist, I do practice general neurology as well. In my practice, I conduct long term EEG monitoring for epilepsy patients, vagal nerve stimulation, and presurgical evaluation for refractory epilepsy patients. I also do Botox injections for refractory migraine patients.

NYU Winthrop is a level 4 comprehensive epilepsy center. Our dedicated multi-disciplinary team uses state-of-the-art equipment to provide thorough, compassionate and individualized care to our patients.

I have participated in many national and international epilepsy clinical trials as a primary investigator. I am a member of the American Academy of Neurology and the American Epilepsy Society. I received a professional leadership award in 2018 by EPIC Long Island.
