If Dr Yang was a waiter, he greeted me, took my order, brought my drink, and then brought the check. He did his job, but bare minimum of compassion, advice, and acting like he cared even the least bit about beingthere. I’m sure he is an adequate physician, but it’s obvious he has a disconnect that he’s dealing with actual people and their long term health and quality of life. I’m seeking a second opinion

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.

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 anyother 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.

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.

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 frequentankle sprains because i'm an ogre, but I have decided to make Yang my #1. Would recommend him to any of my friends & family.

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.
