HE BELONGS IN JAIL. HE IS A PERSON THAT SOMEHOW GOT A DEGREE IN MEDICINE, EVEN THOUGH HE IS OBVIOUSLY IGNORANT OF HOW TO TREAT PATIENTS WITH ANY DEGREE OF RESPECT. I WAS REFERRED TO YIN,(I WILL NOT CALL HIM A DOCTOR) BY NORTH SOUND FAMILY MEDICINE IN BELLINGHAM, WASHINGTON. THEY HAPPEN TO BE IN THE SAME MEDICAL CENTER OWNED BY CHAO YANG WU, WHO USED TO BE MY PRIMARY CARE M.D. FOR MANY YEARS MY FAMILY RESPECTED NORTH SOUND FAMILY MEDICINE. MY PARENTS LEFT THEM DISGUSTED BY MISTAKES THEY MADE. I WENT TO SEE DR. WU FOR AN APPOINTMENT AND THE RECORDS HE HAD WERE FROM MY DECEASED FATHER, JOSEPH CALLAHAN, NOT ME JOEL CALLAHAN, WHO HE HAD BEEN SEEING FOR YEARS. NO WONDER MY PARENTS HAD DECIDED THAT MR. WU WAS THE WRONG PERSON TO LOOK AFTER THEIR WELL BEING. I CAN'T SAY ENOUGH TO WARN PEOPLE OF HOW DANGEROUS THIS DOCTOR CAN BE. MY FATHER, JOSEPH CALLAHAN, DIED IN BELLINGHAM. HE WAS A PATIENT OF MR. WU. MY MOTHER, BARBARA CALLAHAN, DIED IN BELLINGHAM. SHE WAS A PATIENT OF MR. WU.

Dr. Yin diagnosed my severe pain condition that had been dismissed by other PHMG physicians for years. He did a successful neurotomy and THE PAIN IS GONE and has been gone for over 5 years. He has my eternal gratitude for listening and being an amazing diagnostician.

Disgusted Patient in WA – Jun 22, 2018

The best words I can use to describe dr. Yin and his staff are "extremely professional". I was with worsening chronic back pain since 2008 from a spinal injury. Entering dr. Yin's office I was optimistic with a goal of 50% of my pain being relieved. I'm now 90 to 95% pain free which is huge as I was not able to stand up straight or function normally anymore without constant level seven to nine pain. I feel like I have my life back now. Thank you Dr Yin

Dr. Yin has cared for me...no, I am going to state this differently. Dr. Yin has basically given me my life back for the past 9 years under his exquisite care. Were it not for him, and his top staff, I am not sure how different my life could have been, but I know that I would have been a completely non- functioning semblance of a human being.
