My family and I have been patients of Dr Yau for over 15 years. We've been so pleased with Dr Yau's care, so much so, that when he moved from Washington DC, to Spring several years ago, we made the transition with him. He is friendly , caring, knowledgeable and takes the time to answer all our questions at the visit. He sees patients on time. I always walk away from my visits knowing that I have received the best care and Dr Yau genuinely cares about my health

Dr. Yau performed cataract surgery on one of my eyes in March. I had gone to him because he had been highly recommended by several people whose opinion I respect. I was not disappointed. He recommended laser surgery in addition to the cataract surgery and the results were excellent. His office personnel were efficient and courteous. I plan on returning to him next year to have him remove the cataract from my other eye.
