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.

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.
