I was told I need to wait until next month to make an appointment for my follow up appointment in February 2023. This is fine I just to remember!
September 02, 2022
Dr. Yen is very nice and seems very knowledgeable, but it is very difficult to get an appointment to see her. You can never get an appointment in a timely manner... you have to wait weeks or even a month before she can see you. When you do get an appointment, you usually have to wait a long time in the examining room before she gets to you. The appointment is very rushed. She doesn't ask if you have any questions. She goes through your medications, suggests vaccines and takes care of the main reason you are there to see her...nothing more. She never asks is there anything else. Do you have any questions for me? And, before you know it she is gone! Many times I have to ask the assistant to ask her a question or they call her back because I didn't get a chance to ask everything that I wanted to. When she leaves the room, she doesn't say goodbye or thank you for coming or have a nice day...nothing. For example, I am wearing a medical boot on my foot/leg for an injury I have. Dr. Yen saw the boot, but did not ask me why I was wearing it or what happened to me. She is my doctor...shouldn't she be concerned about my health and ask what happened to me? She is just there to do her job and nothing more.

Staff and doctor interacted in a professional and friendly manner.

I felt very respected and cared for by Dr. Yen and her assistant. In fact, I needed an x-ray and her assistant, (name removed), let me into the Urgent Care, where I was seen within 5 minutes of arrival. I was really impressed.

Very friendly & kind. Dr. Yen is very nice & Communicates well. She explains all test & gives good advice. She follows up on my health issues. I'm very happy with her & her nursing staff. The front desk staff was very welcoming as well.
July 19, 2022
Efficient does not even describe my experience. It was a little head-spinning, yet, this young Dr. got it all done! The nurse listened carefully and when the Dr. whirled in, she followed an extremely thorough process from info on computer. Gone, I lament, is the chatting of old between Dr and patient BUT my problems were addressed and referrals made. I will definitely return to Dr Yen.
July 19, 2022
Very caring doctor .
July 07, 2022
The best .my wife and I love her
July 05, 2022
Making appointments with Dr Yen is very difficult. This visit was the first time I have seen her in over 2 years. Most of the time I make appointments with her PA. My last appointment I had scheduled to see her she canceled because she wasn't going to be in. It was canceled 1 1/2 hour before the scheduled time.
June 28, 2022
I would like to suggest that lately making an appointment via the call center is not a good experience. The average wait time is 30-40 minutes and customer service sometimes really needs a little help. Customer service throughout PIH has really declined throughout PIH clinic offices.
June 28, 2022
Had a great experience
June 23, 2022
I think Dr. Yen is the greatest. She's smart, articulate, quick to comprehend and shows genuine concern and care. She follows through on what she say she will do.
June 21, 2022
Dr. Yen great! PIH isn't what it used to be, makes my husband and I sad. We are looking to go somewhere else... The quality of care has changed and not for the better.

I don't tell other people what to do I am not responsible for how they lead their lives. I was disappointed that the provider did not hear that I was going to dynamic not that horrible place on Washington my mammogram. I would not leave until that was corrected. I was just appointed that she had no opinion on whether or not I was to get the 4th Pfizer vaccination. I wish the CDC would make up their mind on what they are advising us to do.
February 25, 2022
Dr. Yen has been my GP for several years. She's always been kind of good to me and she takes time with me and I wouldn't have any other GP right at this point. She's very good.
February 22, 2022
I trust Dr Yen with my life and every being of my body, I trust her implicitly she has helped me immensely and I will continue to trust her in her Every capability.

Dr Yen is an amazing physician!
November 12, 2021
I have already recommended Dr. Yen to 4 friends, and they love her as much as I do. The problem is you can't get an appointment with her right away--usually a 2 week to 2 month wait.
November 11, 2021
Dr. Yen always put me at ease and she has been a constant source of strength when I have health worries. She is caring and very patient. She explains clearly what I don't understand about my health worries. I'm lucky to have her as my primary doctor.
November 11, 2021
Dr Yen is kind, very knowledgeable and a great listener. She is intelligent and zero's in on any issue I may have. If something is out of her expertise she will send me to a specialist to address the issue. She gets an A+
November 11, 2021
My experience was excellent, from the start everyone was helpful and friendly. The nurse started my appointment right on time and the Dr. was very professional, informative and caring. I would have to say this was one of my most pleasant Dr. Appointments I've ever experienced. I also received a follow-up phone call right away from Nurse [name removed] regarding insurance coverage. The entire staff, and facilities, including parking were awesome, accessible and 5 minutes from my mom's house, where I was able to drop off my little children while I attended my appointment. Thank you and blessings.
October 28, 2021
Everyone was so nice and respectful. I just just wondering and little worried why a doctor would prescribe a prescription to a new patient that hasn't seen a doctor in 6 years. I would think he would want to check him out first. Perhaps a physical or blood work before prescribing pills.
October 28, 2021
I like the services here .
October 28, 2021
I trust my dr
October 22, 2021
