Dr. Yang was professional, thoughtful and thorough. He takes his time to get to know his patients and to think throughthe problems they bring him. This means longer wait times but I think it is worth it.

He spent time asking questions and gave excellent advice with evidence supporting the advice. I am a physician who just moved to the area and needed a primary physician. He skipped over a few minor things but nothing other physicians Ihave had would not do as there is only so much time during a visit. I would recommend him.

This was my best physical assessment ever. Dr. Yang took his time and explained everything to me in detail. There was also an intern with him and he was also explaining to the intern which I liked a lot. I believehe may have also solved a problem which I have been battling for a while.

Dr. Yang is really great. He actually sat and talked with me about what was going on and why I didn't feel good. He wants to get to the root cause of problems. I have depression, anxiety and thyroid issues. Iwas quick to assume that my recent problems were because of my thyroid and wanted to just change my dose of thyroid medicine, but he wants me to try an antidepressant and also low-dose naltrexone to treat autoimmunity, along with a small dose of a muscle relaxant to help with my TMJ and joint pain. I was reluctant to take more pills at first, but I feel that addressing the root problem and not just blaming my thyroid immediately is a better route to take. I have been blaming my thyroid for almost 4 years since my surgery - hopefully Dr. Yang's treatment will help me.

Dr. Yang is a rarity in this age of medicine. He is a throw-back to the times when Dr's would spend time in examining/questioning patients, showing sincere interest in their well being and conditions. He is not only interested in treatingyour condition, but also focused on getting to the root of the cause and how to eliminate. I have been going to Dr Yang for 6+ years and so happy to have discovered this special Dr who genuinely cares for patients and people.

I had to wait unusually long to see Dr. Yang this time; not normally so long. But Dr. Yang takes all the time that you need with him or that he needs with you, asking questions to ascertain your problem. Heseems to keep current on research and bases his treatments on it.
