Verified Patient Reviews
Great doctor! Very knowledgeable. Was able to alleviate my concern about a recent injury. Highly recommended
Had to wait over an hour to be seen, but was pleased with his bedside manner and overall visit. Would recommend him.
Dr Yang was quick to diagnose that my condition should be seen by a rheumatologist but prescribed some painkillers and ordered some exrays while I make an appointment with the referred rheumatologist.
The doctor's staff lost all record of me as a patient and persisted in telling me I had never been to the office before. I showed them the date and time of my previous appointment from zocdoc and explained to them precisely what had transpired during that appointment. Despite this, I was told repeatedly I was wrong, and I had have never been there before. So, if you'd like to be forgotten, and told you're hallucinating, then by all means, book yourself with Dr Yang.
He's ok, but always look for a better option. Good luck!
It was very good.
Dr. Yang is strait forward and courteous. A professional that I would recommend anyone to.
To be frank, the appointment with Dr. Yang, felt rushed quite a bit and he was talking a bit too much with his PA student then I'd like. He told me that he treats ONLY the arm and leg so any other parts of the body I needed treatment for he wouldn't be able to help me. However the location was prompt in doing the X-rays and the facility was clean.
He was great. He asked pertinent questions and answered questions that I have. He informed me of things about my condition that I wasn't aware of.
Mr Yang is a GREAT doctor!
Doctor was fine. Big problem was ZocDoc. Neglected to tell me he wasn't a back specialist even though that's what I searched for. My knee is fine. Thanks for nothing, ZocDoc.
Diagnosed tendonitis in my wrist. Gave me advice and cortizone shot. Nice demeanor.
He is a very good doctor
My visit went great. He treated me & the pain I was feeling is going away. I would definitely recommend him to family & friends. Great guy. ????????
This doctor was top notch. He had excellent bedside manner and was understanding. He even took the time to educate me about my condition.
I wouldn't go back here unless I absolutely had to. I took the prescription and nothing has changed, the problem wasn't diagnosed & the wait at the office was over 2 hours after my scheduled time.
Gave a quick, thorough exam and solid recommendations for care.
He was great!.
It was certainly an unpleasant experience I've ever had. When I went for my appointment, there was not a single patient waiting before me and yet I had to wait for more than 45 minutes. They have poorly trained staff who are extremely rude and unprofessional. Then came the doctor who didn't seem to be attentive. It was most certainly a dreadful experience.
Great staff and courteous informed discussions.
Dr. Yang saw me right away, and was thorough with the examination process. When a small procedure was recommended, he explained the process clearly and talked me through it with a good bedside manner.
Dr. Yang was professional , courteous and answered every question . He was very thorough and spent a good amount of time with us- we did not feel rushed.
I would never go back or recommend anyone else to visit this doctor. Wasnt attentive or friendly at all.
I never want to break another bone, but if I do, I am definitely seeing Yang!
Quick, painless! took us longer to find parking! I love efficiency, and i definitely appreciate that Dr Yang (despite having 2 PA's in the room) put my cast on himself! I used to have an orthopedist in Nassau for my frequent ankle sprains because i'm an ogre, but I have decided to make Yang my #1. Would recommend him to any of my friends & family.
When I would read reviews about horror story doctors, I always thought the people writing them were perhaps a little too sensitive and exaggerating about their experience. That was until I met with Dr. Yang. In all my time on earth, I have never met a doctor who was so rude and uncaring. I came for a joint injury and instead of gently and slowly bending my limb to check the problem, he just jammed it the bent position. This was his first test and before an x-ray, so he didn't even know how much more damage he was causing the injury with his actions. It was so painful, I actually cried. Dr. Yang didn't even say sorry or show any empathy. Instead he prescribed a medication with no explanation of it's purpose, and when asked about it, he actually said "to Google it". He literally spend 2 minutes max with me and his last words were not about treatment, but about the things be would not do to help with an insurance claim. "If your insurance needs peer-to-peer, I'm not going to do it. I'm too busy to do it".
Unfortunately, the ZOC DOC booking site that I used to book this appointment was not compatable with the offices system. Due to this glitch, I was kept waiting to see the doctor because the office could not put me in there system.
