Patient Comments (8)
Visalia, CA |
super rude towards Medi-cal patients like myself. He doesn't say hello or care about his patient's suffering. He just wants to see one more patient and collect his money. I don't feel myself being treated as a human being in his office.

Wait time for appointment is over 30 minutes at 9am. He spends very little time with patients. Discusses medication changes then for gets to forward to pharmacy. Ordered an in office vaccine and then forgot to tell nurse. There is limited seating in the waiting area and patients are forced to stand or go sit on the porch outside. I would not recommend this doctor to anyone

Dr. Tom Yang is very through in his evaluation. He is a very good communicator. He takes time with the individual patient. I recommend Dr, Tom Yang without question. He is always on target and on task. He does not waste the time allocated to each patient.

The consistently schedule several people for the same time slots, making appointments useless. They realistically just use the sign in sheet to determine which patient to call back next. The rooms are dirty and the building is not capable of protecting Personal Identifiable Information! I can her the doctor talking in every room as if the door of the room was left open. The office is cold and several patients while waiting complained about not being told of their new location.
We are truly sorry that you had a poor experience. We recently moved to a new location and have been trying to work out the kinks of a new office. Your feedbacks are important and helpful for us to improve our services and we will sincerely try to be better and address all your concerns.
