Very thorough exam with Dr. Yang. He went through the differential diagnosis then ordered tests to rule out what it couldor could not be. Awesome doctor!

I performed a colonoscopy procedure and called multiple times for the results. They agreed to call me back for the result but never kept their promise. Now after 3 months, I still have no results for this expensive procedure. They never discuss with you about expected bill. Upon my request, they said I will only be charged for facility fee during the day of procedure. Now I received multiple bills. I'll never go to this place and ask my friends not go their neither.

I am the type of person who doesn't care about the besides manner of the doctors, as long as he is good at curing patient and diagnose, I don't care if he smiles at me or being impatient with me so even I see some comments saying he didn't smile I still went to see him. The doctor looks trustworthy, I will definitely recommend him based on this appointment experience. And I actually think Dr. Yang's besides manner is pretty good. The staff, omg, they are in such a chaos, maybe they should hire more front desk persons, I waited for an hour to get someone to talk to me. All the info I gave over the phone was not put into record. And I think they overbooked Dr. Yang, I waited more than an hour and a half to see the doctor and I think the guy sit next to me waited much longer, I guess maybe someone forgot to check him in. Poor guy...And the parking cost me extra $6, that's weird.

I had an appointment at 3:45pm and arrived at Dr. Yang's office at 3:15pm. I wasn't able to see Dr. Yang until 4:30pm. I filled out my history and paperwork beforehand on ZocDoc thinking it would help speed up the process along, but by the time I got to the office they said ZocDoc was out of date and they had different paperwork for me to fill out. About four pages worth of documents. So be prepared to wait awhile and don't waste your time filling out the ZocDoc form. Also, parking costs $6. So be prepared prior to arriving. During the visit, dr yang was very efficient. He asked 3-4 questions and diagnosed me right away. He gave me a prescription and I was done in about 5-6 minutes. Would have like to talk more about the issue, but at that point I was ready to be home!

Dr. Yang is a nice guy, but his bedside manner leaves a lot to be desired. He didn't smile once. He told me I might have celiac disease, but didn't even bother to explain what it was. I will definitely be switching to another gastroenterologist.

He is one of the five best doctors I have ever met. I got the run around from my PCP and had 2 unnecessary ER visits. I knew the ER doctors did not know what was wrong with me. I made an appoint with Dr Yang and he got right to the problem.
