The only reason for the delay was a medical emergency that was well communicated to me by the front desk folks, the medical assistant, and then by Dr. Yao herself. Very professional and informative.

I waited for almost two hours to be seen and I arrived 20 minutes prior to my appointment time. It wasn’t crowded and there were people who came after me that were seen much earlier. Don’t come here if you’re ona tight schedule. If you don’t mind the wait she’s a pretty good doctor.

She was honestly fantastic. I was pretty nervous going in and I hate doctors but she was perfect. Really calmed me, reassured me and we had a nice chat (not all medical). Actually seemed like she cared so that’s always a plus. Highly recommend!

Dr. Yao is extremely professional, knowledgeable, and empathetic. She listened carefully and asked good questions, and ultimately recommended a consultation with another MD (a neurologist), which has since proved to be the right course of action. She was also very generous with her time. I highly recommend her.
