There was about half an hour after the nurse took my vitals before I saw the doctor, which wasn’t terribly long, but it would have been nice if it hadn’t been that long of a wait.

Exceptional internist who not only listens carefully during the "patient interview," but explains how he makes a diagnosis/decision (if you're visiting due to illness) and is thorough in his examinations. A somewhat rare find--definitely recommend Dr. Yang for primary care.

I scheduled an appointment. It took an hour to be called back to the room, then another hour before I saw the doctor. Multiple walk ins went ahead of me. I had to rearrange child care to stay that long. It was a frustrating experience.

Dr Yang was both thorough and efficient. The intro and goodbye were rather abrupt but he actually spent a very good deal of time talking with me and examining me to diagnose the issue and determine the most appropriate course ofaction. This was no small feat given I'd also just delivered a baby and am breastfeeding, so certain solutions were off limits. I have only seen him once but would not hesitate to see him again. He's in an urgent care type setting though so there were lots of sick folks in the waiting room.

Dr. Yang and his staff are probably the most friendly medical team I have ever encountered. From the moment I arrived, the entire staff was so friendly, personable and welcoming. I was greeted by the front desk staff before being takenback to the nurse. I was then seen by a rockstar medical student who then brought in Dr. Yang. Dr. Yang is very funny, attentive and warm. I am definitely appreciative of his time and the time of his staff during my appointment today.

Wasn't seen until 90 minutes after my wait time. Doctor did not conduct any tests or review ultrasound results I had submitted. I said that the ultrasound showed liver irregularities and he just prescribed valium after conducting no tests.Prescription says not to take if you have liver issues. I asked about a diagnosis that the urgent care doctor at the same facility gave me, he told me to "read an anatomy book."

Dr. Yang was great, however, the wait time was utterly ridiculous. it took 2 hours for me to get seen & I had an appointment booked WELL in advance. So if you go see him make sure you have time because it will not be an in & out process.
