Dr. Yang was very thorough, interested to dig into the root of my family and disease history to understand what might be effective for me, and set up proper follow-ups including a full blood panel and sleep study. She is knowledgeableabout nutrition, health, sleep, exercise, as well as medical conditions. She is also a very kind and personable doctor! Overall based on my first visit, I'm glad I chose Dr. Yang, and I'm looking forward to making further progress with her on my health!

I went to her for a physical and because I had anxiety, she ended up evaluating my sleep and told me I had anxiety because of my sleep apnea, made me do a sleep test, then tried to sell me asleep monitor (very expensive). Seemed like she was more of a sleep doctor than regular doctor. Didn't really end up helping me at all.

I love Dr. Yong already. She is so kind, professional, and wants her patients to be healthy and happy. She referred me to a specialist (which I was expecting) but also looked into my full medical history to make sure I'm doing well all around.

So, I have a lot of social anxiety. Doctors make me particularly nervous. Dr. Yong was so great. She never made me feel uncomfortable, which is quite a feat. The staff was really nice (even though I showed up an hour early). I couldn't be happier.

She is a very nice lady and so is the staff but I just don't think that she is a good fit for me. Waits can be on the long side. Several times I have made appointments to only have acall the day before to reschedule my appointment. Appointments take a really long time with a lot of interruptions. A lot of confusion from the staff that runs the office not responding in a timely fashion.

I had such a pleasant visit with Dr. Yong. I came to her as a new patient. I have not been feeling well lately and have been trying to self-medicate at home. I have been sleeping a lot and feeling fatigued.After her thorough assessment, she was able to provide a diagnosis and a plan of treatment. She spent a good amount of time explaining everything to make sure I understand completely. The front desk staff is just as nice and kind. Her office has a professional, open and clean look. They have a lot of computers, but, they take the time to talk with me as a person. I am so happy to have found Dr. Yong and her practice.

Dr. Yong is one amazing Physician. For many years, I had not been seeing doctors for a while because of my busy schedule. But, my daughter made an appointment for me to be seen by Dr. Yong. Immediately, Dr. Yong identifiedsome life threatening medical problems. She literally saved my life. My health was deteriorating quickly, I was on deaths door when she intercepted, determined my diagnosis accurately and began a treatment plan. She has superb bed side manners and has such a caring demeanor that shines right through. In addition, her office staff are just as kind, attentive, efficient, and wonderful as she is. They are all very professional. Her office has a clean, open, welcoming, kind, and bright appearance. I look forward to seeing Dr. Yong.

Dr. Yong was very nice and really thorough! I went in to discuss nutrition and she factored in everything (including sleep) before we finalize a nutrition/fitness plan. She seemed really knowledgeable and everyone on the staff was incredibly friendly as well. Looking forward to working with her and her team!

Dr. Yong is excellent! She was very enthusiastic about helping me lose weight and overall becoming healthier. Most nutritionists would have just told me to exercise more and eat less. But Dr. Yong praised me for coming in while I'm ata younger age, she assessed my entire medical history to get to the root of the issue aside from simple diet and exercise, and she was very frank about the things that should and should not be normal about my body. So informative and super helpful. And this was only after one visit! My appointment didn't feel rushed through and the rest of her staff was super friendly, as well!
