The staff at her uptown location and brooklyn location are excellent. Most of her staff at the 156 Williams location are wonderful. However there are a few rotten apples working there!!

I feel so privileged to have found Dr Yuan and am grateful that my PCP another great doctor (Burack of Sunrise Medical) recommended her and referred me. Firstly, she is incredibly professional and courteous and explains everything clearly and in detail so that I as a patient better understands what is happening with my body. She is incredibly knowledgeable and is up to date with the latest and best practices for treating patients and prescribing medications.

I would leave a review on Google but I want to remain anonymous. I am an Ivy league educated and trained physician with a serious rheumatologic disease. No one spends more time researching their illness and possible treatments. Dr. Yuan is smart smart smart. Also good hearted resourceful and wise, (wise is different than smart). She sees patients from every walk of life and obviously respects, cares for and respects all. I have seen a few rheumatologists including at HSS, no one is better.
