"the best of the best!”

By VEE

Last week I seen Dr. Yeh for my 1 year post op checkup for my thyroidectomy he had performed. And, thanks to Dr. Yeh, I’m happy to say that I am now thyroid cancer free!
I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer only 3 months after I had been diagnosed and had a major surgery for a deadly melanoma of my arm. So, for me to hear the word “cancer” again, so soon… was devastating to me. To say the least, I was an emotional basket case. Dr. Yeh and his staff were aware of my prior cancer, and were not only sympathetic to me, but understood what I had already gone through. And it showed with the care I was given.
Upon my first visit with Dr. Yeh, his warm and confident demeanor put me at ease. He explained my condition, and the surgery procedure with great detail, and made sure I understood everything. One thing that impressed me, and made me feel like he truly cared, was that he performed an ultrasound of my thyroid himself, in his office. He knew what he was looking for, and what he wanted to see. That in itself gave me the confidence that I could make it through this with Dr. Yeh.
I felt very cared for before, during, and after my thyroid cancer surgery. Dr. Yeh and his knowledgable staff are so kind and supportive, I couldn’t have asked for a better medical team. I have absolutely no scar, and no one can believe that I had surgery!
Dr. Yeh and all of his staff are truly “the best of the best!”
I send many, many heartfelt thanks,
