I would like to thank Dr. Yeh and his team for such classy professional care during my stay at Ronald Reagan Medical Center. I am pleased to say that I've been a nurse for 50 years and an ICU nurse for 33 of those years. Dr. Yeh was so patient and was not in a hurry on my first visit with him. He explained the procedure , complications and side effects in such a non-threatening manner. It was so refreshing. On the day of surgery I was reassured and felt so secure. Post surgery, his visits, instructions and follow- up two weeks later were so enriching.
I must also commend his residents and nurse practitioner Jennifer who, like Dr. Yeh had such good bedside manner. My questions before surgery were answered via several phone calls to me.
I can't forget to also commend Dr. Shah in the South Bay area who was so kind, prompt and patient in conveying the results of all of my test to make the diagnosis of hyperparathyroidism. She was prompt in ordering the tests and coming up with the diagnosis after three years of rising calcium levels.
All in all a great big THANK YOU to the entire endocrine department. It was a non-threatening memorable experience.
