Both my daughter and I received surgery with Dr. Yeh. I had a parathyroid surgery years ago, and it went very successfully. When we found out that my daughter had thyroid cancer, the decision to return to Dr. Yeh was an easy one because of prior positive experiences. We were [...]

Dr. Avital Harari (with the support of Dr. Benharash) recently conducted a very difficult parathyroid surgery on me, as the malfunctioning parathyroid node had descended behind my sternum and next to my aorta.
