I'm almost tempted not to tell anyone what a great doctor Dr. Yen is because it's so hard to get an appointment to see him! But the word is already out clearly. I've been seeing Dr. Yen for over a decade for thyroid management and he's an amazing, thoughtful, gentle, caring, responsive, and collaborative doctor who is truly passionate about the medical care and well-being of his patients. He stays up to date on the literature and the new treatment approaches and is always willing to offer new options and ideas to manage conditions.

Excellent doctor - really takes his time to thoroughly assess and listen to all your concerns - he's very reasonable with tests and treatment as well - nothing over the top, nothing unnecessary and he doesn't need you to follow up every single week. It can be a little hard to get in touch with him as sometimes it feels like his office is understaffed. Every time I call I'm put on hold for at least 5mins, no matter what time of day. But when you do actually see or speak with him, you feel as though you're his only patient. I've recommended him to so many people. Beautiful, clean modern office as well.

Great doctor who was patient, thoughtful, and attentive. The wait for the appointment took forever, though, and the front desk can be a pain to deal with. After a blood test, I called the office (as instructed) and was told that he would call me back. After not hearing back for a week, I called again, and the person informed me that he was on vacation but would leave a message to have him call me back. After another week and still no call, I called again, and the admin was surprised to hear that I had called previously as there were no messages for him to call me! This time, she actually took a message down and he called me later that day. Dr. Yen was great, though the rest of the experience left much to be desired.

Getting to see Dr. Yen on the appointment date was almost instantaneous. There wasn't much wait. However, getting this initial appointment took time. I had to schedule two months in advance. But that just goes to show you how good he really is. Dr. Yen is knowledgeable and courteous. He help me understand my treatment and started me on it immediately. And best of all, he is transgender friendly. If you need an endocrinologist, this is your man.

I worked with Dr. Yen for over a year. He was caring and concerned at every visit. I never waited more than 10 minutes for my appointment. He always explained things to me in a way that was understandable, but never talked down to me. He listened to my concerns, and went over all my options at every phase of treatment. It is very hard to find good Endocrinologist, but I would certainly recommend Dr. Yen to anyone who wants to finally find a solution to their medical issue. He is a rare gem.

He was okay, but I wish he had spent just a little time to find out my hypothyroid symptoms before just refilling my previous prescription. When I asked about another supplemental medication, he just asked how much I wanted, and prescribed that as well. I felt like I got nothing but a refill out of the visit. Bad form for the "leading endocrinologist of NYC", or maybe it was because I was his last appointment of the day. Either way, I wasn't impressed.

Super professional, doesn't waste your time but gets as technical as you want him to, and absolutely took seriously my input & pre-research of the potential conditions or testings I expected to take. I was right about most of them, and he added a couple more tests for completeness. Very practical and efficient, but definitely not in that way that makes me worry he's going to overlook anything!

Very thorough. He gave me the right information and then some more. The staff was incredible too and so were the premises. I have been dealing with thyroid issues for at least 20 years, so I really appreciate a physician who takes the time to analyze and explain symptoms.
