Don’t go there if you want to be treated like a human being. Made to feel inconsequential over a dispute of 5 minutes. May or may not be a good doctor but her back office staff (Neesha) need a lesson in diplomacy.

Dr. Yuan has been my rheumatologist since I was first diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis in February of 2019. She is not only knowledgeable of the medical treatment of RA but is also extremely knowledgeable of the holistic treatment of RA, including mindfulness, diet control, and meditation. She takes the time to listen to my concerns, validates them and is never judgemental. She has been extremely compassionate and understanding of this difficult diagnosis and made a challenging journey much easier to tolerate.

I have been seeing Dr. Yuan for about 4 months now. I was recommended to HSS by a client who is a doctor, and I haven't looked back since. Although it's a 3-4 hour round-trip when I go in to see her, I think the trip is worth it. Dr. Yuan is professional, the facility is bright and spotless, she spends a good amount of time reviewing symptoms, conducts a thorough examination, and explains the pros and cons when deciding on medication. When you need blood work, x-rays or an MRI - it's all conveniently located downstairs and there's reduced-rate parking across the street. And once I called late in the day on a Friday and she wasn't in because I wasn't doing well, and she called me back early on Saturday to talk and send a new prescription in. She believes in a holistic approach, including diet, lifestyle, gentle exercise-and she doesn't just push meds. I am glad that after so many years of pain and suffering, I finally found a doctor who can get me back to living my life again.

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.
