I have been a patient of Dr. Yang's for 13 years. He has helped me in so many ways. Between neuro stimulators, Internal drug pumps, and numerous other procedures to try to reduce the amount of pain that I have had for 43 years, I would recommend him to everyone! The staff of nurses, receptionist, managers are all the most professional people that I have dealt with and I have dealt with numerous people over my lifetime. The Yang gang rocks !!!!!!!!!!

I was referred to Dr. Yang by another doctor for a second opinion on my back pain. I was very pleased with Dr. Yang. He was very thorough in his review of my chart notes and exam. He spent more time than my appointment allowed to make sure that I understood everything. Oh, and yes I had to give a urine sample which is usual for all new patients.

I also am a long standing patient of Dr Yang. I've been a patient at the same clinic for over 15 years. Dr Yang implanted a stimulator to control extreme daily migraines. Since 2007 I have been free of the constant migraines caused from chronic neck pain. Swedish Pain Clinic and Dr Yang have been the only ones that have helped me cope with extreme chronic pain since 1980! I trust Dr Yang and the staff at Swedish Pain Clinic have always been courteous, helpful,& professional!
