From the very beginning, Dr. Yeh made me feel very comfortable and took the time to walk me through everything, ensuring that I had a firm grasp on my diagnosis as well as the next steps of treatment. I had my daughter and wife with me for my first visit and was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism and cancer in the right lobe of my thyroid. All the pressure that I had coming into the visit was lifted once he explained what was going to happen and what he saw during his examination. An aspect of care that meant a lot to us was the fact that he answered all of our questions with patience, never making us feel rushed - it filled me with a sense of comfort as I walked out of the clinic. I had surgery 2 weeks ago (which went very smoothly) and just visited for a post operative appointment. I'm happy to say I feel wonderful.
I was referred to Dr. Yeh as one of the best out there and once I was able to experience this firsthand, I fully realized how wonderful he is. Even after my surgery, he went to my wife and daughter to explain how the procedure went. The entire staff from beginning to end, from the nurses to the anesthesiologists, was exceptional. The way they treated my family changed my entire experience and I'm sure other patients feel the same way. He's one of the professors in the medical school and I think that's really amazing that he's using his knowledge in this field to educate a new generation of doctors.
