Dr. Yen is certainly very knowledgeable on thyroid problems. He's quite professional. I appreciate doctors when they use technical terms to describe my symptoms, since I have some understanding of the terms from my background. It may, however,confuse some patients. That said, I bet he will explain if you ask him to. My main complaints are 1) the receptionist is a bit rude; 2) the placement of the equipment inside the patient rooms are not optimal for doing blood work and you have to face the doctor at an awkward angle when you talk to him -- the bed are facing completely opposite directions as the computer desk.

Really great office experience. I used to wait over an hour in the waiting room just to see my endocrinologist, and then get sent to a lab to draw blood. Dr. Yen called me into the office as soon as Ihad finished filling out paperwork and a nurse drew my blood right there in the office. Wish I came to him sooner! Very nice and knowledgeable doctor as well.

I was called into the room on time but then left to wait for the doctor for almost an hour. Being a new patient, I wish he had made more of an effort to introduce himself and get to know me,but overall I feel good about the care I received. After he left, I had to wait another 15 minutes or so to have my blood drawn so definitely be prepared to spend a while there.

Dr. Yen was so thorough and takes the time to respond to your questions. In addition, he reviewed my medical records prior to seeing me which is not so often provider will do that. Most of the time they want tohear from the patient without reviewing the medical records.

Dr. Yen was lovely in person; however the issues I've had were after the fact. I visited on June 21 and my labs came back that same day, which I saw on MyChart. And then I waited. And Waited. There wasno follow-up from Dr. Yen to the fact my results were much higher than previously. I finally emailed him after several weeks of waiting (my bad for waiting) and he called me quickly. He informed me I need to change my prescription, but never called in the prescription. A week has gone by and I left a VM for the prescription line. Again, no response. I called the office and the staff was rather rude and transferred me to the same voicemail. I also emailed Dr. Yen again. Waiting for more than a month between a visit and getting the right medicine is completely unacceptable, and for those with bigger health issues this could be downright dangerous.
