PIH is so fortunate to have Dr. Yen. She has the best "bed-side manner" and takes her time to listen to you. She always asks if I have any questions, takes notes and especially is excellent at following up with her patients if they are due for anything. I am so grateful to have her as my primary care physician and always recommend her to anyone looking for a doctor.

March 25, 2021
The girl who helped me check in was a bit rude. While waiting to be called, she was trying to talk to me while in line without me knowing she was talking to me, she never called me over to begin my checkin. One of the other girls behind the desk reminded her about giving me a new mask and she respond to her with an attitude. Not sure if she was having a bad day, but it looked pretty bad on her part.

Dr. Yen and her RN were so incredibly helpful. Dr. Yen is the first doctor to ever make me feel heard and not dismissed when I have explained my ailments. I have recommended Dr. Yen to my family. The RN who assisted with my referral and making the appt with the retina specialist for me was incredibly helpful and extremely attentive. I am so grateful to be back with PIH.
February 18, 2021
Male nurse in the wrong line of work. Did not care for him at all!!
February 18, 2021
I don't appreciate PIH touting their own in-house providers. Especially are mammograms. Especially when I had such a horrible experience there. After the encounter I was told I needed an MRI. I can't have one I have a titanium valve. They don't even know me.
February 18, 2021
Dr. Yen always takes the time to discuss and explain my concerns regarding my health issues. She is a true asset to PIH.
February 18, 2021

January 12, 2021
She's a very good doctor. I am pleased with her and she does keep me informed about my health.
January 12, 2021
Dr. Yen is the BEST. Listens and explains so well. When I told her I was a sexual assault survivor, she didn't stigmatize me but still treated me with such sensitivity and explained all she was doing. She was able to diagnose an issue for which I have been seeking care for 2 years. She gave me the power to decide how I wanted to move forward, but educated me on all my options and helped me feel knowledgable and empowered as a patient. Would recommend her to anyone.
January 08, 2021

January 07, 2021
All staff that I came in contact with were exceptionally nice and professional! Dr Yen did a fantastic job at explaining my plan of care to me. My only complaint is having to be put on hold for so long when needing to schedule an appointment. I think a 15-20 min wait time on hold is not acceptable.

Staff was very helpful and friendly
October 13, 2020
This is a very efficient, well organized office. I love Dr. Yen! She is caring, articulate and is on top of everything. She referred me right away to a specialist for an issue I have. I have referred 4 friends to her, and they are all happy with her. My only complaint is that it takes a while to get an appointment. My visit was for a wellness check, so I didn't mind waiting a few weeks, but for an urgent issue, you usually get a different doctor or go to urgent care.
October 02, 2020
Professional good listener and caring
