Patient Reviews

February 07, 2017
He seemed very rushed, ( even when I was waiting for 30 min passed my appt time) and treated me like if I was in urgent care not caring just there to give meds out! Not a happy patient .
February 07, 2017
First impressions were very good. I wouldn't mind if he were my primary doctor.
February 06, 2017
It makes me sad that he leaving. He is awsome dr.
February 03, 2017
I would not definitely recommend this Doc. He saw my symptoms and then said if u want you can take the antibiotics but it might not help. His answer to my questions showed that he did not care what steps I took. I will not see him

I had a really bad sore throat, but he said I was in my last stage of cold but I'm still battling the sore throat, but not too bad, maybe an antibiotic to hurry the cold.

I've already recommended him to my close friends & my husband is seeing him too.
October 05, 2016
He was very concerned about my condition & answered my questions & gave me a referral.
September 16, 2016
There are young doctors, I understand that completely. But the practice must understand that the patients have time constraints also and ALL the doctors in the practice MUST both appreciate and understand it.
September 13, 2016
I would tell them not to go to him. He is not very friendly nor is he informative
September 12, 2016
I already told you.
September 07, 2016
Dont go to him if you have a disability

He has changed when he left the La Habra office. He seems always tired and in a hurry to move on to the next patient

Dr. Yung is wonderful. He really is a caring and understanding person, which is hard to find in a Doctor these days.. I am now in the process of changing him to my primary. He's outstanding.
August 15, 2016
Dr. Yung is amazing! He asks questions, listens, and explains things well. He is easy to talk to and never seems rushed. :)

Dr. Yung is a wonderful Doctor. He cares about his patients. While I do not have to visit often he always knows and remembers me and my family. I refer friends to him all the time.

July 29, 2016
He's when you forward takes time with me answers all my questions and this is such a very nice doctor takes care of all my concerns I think him for being my daughter Terry is wonderful and thank you PIH for hiring him Dr. David Young is the best
July 06, 2016
Dr Yung has been a good dr. I just wish that when u see a pt who requests a refill of Xanax for anxiety u consider how they use it. I was only asking for a refill because my danax at home was expired but I had only USED a few tabs this year. Dr Yung was not interested in refilling and would rather put me on an antidepressant- more long term medication than a prn med. luckily I didn't have to take any more. Since 2012 I haven't even used 1/2 my jar. I will continue to use my expired medication if needed...obviously I don't need it often! If of is known to not abuse it, why not refill.
July 06, 2016
He is a good doctor, because he seems to truly listen and take the conservative approach when finding solutions to my medical issues. I know others who feel the same way about him in my personal circle. I am thankful to have found Dr. Yung!
July 01, 2016
See any doctor or PA other than Dr young
June 29, 2016

Very oersonable
June 24, 2016
Dr. Yung is an excellent doctor. Very caring. Always listens to what I have to say and works with me to solve my medical problems. Thank you for Dr. Richard Yung.
June 24, 2016
Dr Richard Yung is one of the best in his field.
June 24, 2016
truthfully do not talk of doctors with them
June 21, 2016
the doctor is good if you can get to see him in a timely manner. You almost have to pre plan your illness in order to see him.
June 08, 2016
He is very handsome and kind.
June 07, 2016
There are quality doctors at PIH - be prepared to move with the doctors. The services (quest, service reps) and processes are less than they should be to retain talent (doctors and some nurses) at PIH. Keep in touch with the good ones so you know when they are leaving - not if they are leaving.
June 06, 2016
Best doctor I ever had. He also brought my father in law back from near death.
June 06, 2016
He is respectful and attentive.
June 03, 2016
Very professional and noticed I had a virus when the urgent care doctor didn't.
May 24, 2016
I felt Dr Yung gave me his time never did I feel rushed due to other patients.
May 23, 2016
One of the best care provider's I have experienced
May 20, 2016
My comments are NOT about this provider particularly. I would like to see PIH set up email communication between the doctor and patient. City of Hope had this system back in 2001 and it was a great way for each to communicate when it was convenient.
May 18, 2016
Dr Yung is THE BEST doctor I have ever been to and will continue to go to.
May 18, 2016
Dr. Yung listens attentively and asks probing questions. He allows the patient to make decisions for themselves, with his guidance.
May 18, 2016
Dr. Yung is the worst Doctor I've ever encountered, he cares nothing about my medical past or my current issues and he has the crappiest attitude and does not need to be working with the public. I will never see him again and as a matter fact I am changing doctors offices...
May 17, 2016
Dr. Yung had a way making me feel comfortable during my visit. He was easy to talk to and took his time with me.
May 16, 2016
Dr Youn is an exception go the norm. He listens, explains and keeps track of your progress.
May 16, 2016
Friendly easy to talk with.
May 04, 2016
Dr. Yung is very courteous, and takes the time needed to understand my concerns and to explain things to me.
April 26, 2016
Love that the offices have been remodeled and I really love that we can now get blood test on site!! That was great news.
April 25, 2016
Easy to understand and is quite congenial and understanding - a very good doctor.
April 19, 2016
He was very detailed in trying to figure out my issues.
April 18, 2016
Very personable. Caring attitude.
April 15, 2016
I was happy that the Dr agreed to see both my husband and I at the same time.

April 08, 2016
Finally, respectful and considerate and funny to boot. Thank you Dr Yung
April 04, 2016
Very attentive and regarded my opinions
March 30, 2016
This is the first time he sees me but I was satisfied, he looks knowledgable and although I'm still struggling with the same symptoms I guess his diagnose could be correct.
March 30, 2016
Great doctor, very attentive.
March 29, 2016
Dr. Yung is professional. He greeted me upon entering the room. He looked me in the eye. He did not appear to be in a hurry. He asked questions of me and focused on listening, responding with concurrence or clear explanation. He provided what appeared to be a thorough exam for my condition and explained what he was doing and what it showed. He told me what to expect going forward and asked if I had any questions. This may be my only chance to comment also: Karina, showed me to the room and noted basic information. She was more professional and approachable and interested in the interaction necessary than my previous experiences at PIH Lambert Family Practice. She and Dr. Yung were both inviting and demonstrated they wanted to get it right. Appears to be a great team!.
March 29, 2016
Very caring doctor. Have recommended him to friends and family.
March 28, 2016
