Dr. Yen is a wonderful doctor. He listens and respects his patients. I have been going to him for a number of years and have recommended some dear friends to see him. I feel I am in competent caring hands whenever I interact with Dr. Yet. He is a consummate professional. I am also very very impressed with all the staff that I have met at Mt. Sinai.

It was my first visit with Dr. Yen to deal with my ongoing Thyroid issue and he was awesome! He sat with me for 45 minutes, listened and explained everything I needed and his bedside manner was 100%. Also, even though it was busy (cold/flu time) the people at front desk and the nurses were very nice as well.

I was extremely impressed with my first visit. The doctor is clearly knowledgeably and was able to offer various information that my prior doctor just didn't possess. I am happy to begin treating my Hashimoto's with Dr. Yen.

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 I had 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 to hear from the patient without reviewing the medical records.
