Dr Yen listened to all my questions. I did not have to wait long once I got there. Everyone was nice and patient.
May 03, 2019
She was very professional and personable, knowledgeable and was able to answer my questions immediately. Although it was our first time meeting, she treated me as if she already was acquainted with me. I am very happy she will be my new primary care doctor.

Dr. Yen is a great doctor. She is always willing to help. She always answers her emails and takes her time with her patients. She is my primary doctor, however, when I do visit my specialists, she is always up to date with my health. She also does a great job furthing explaing things I did not understand.

One of the best experiences I ever had at a medical office. Dr. Yen listened to my needs and came up with a game plan to execute the plan. Dr. Yen was easy to talk to, and made the process easy.
March 29, 2019
I love Dr. Yen. She is young, energetic, knowledgeable and articulate. I have the utmost confidence in her. I have recommended her to three friends who are also happy with her. My only complaint is that you have to wait to get an appointment with her. If it's something that needs to be addressed sooner rather than later, you have to see someone else.

March 14, 2019
Dr. Yen comes in prepared and knows my medical history and so it was easy for us to understand each other on where we're at as far as plan of care was concerned, she takes time to listen and explain when I have questions and tells me what the next plan of action is.

She is an outstanding Dr. I have my family to choose her as their primary
March 12, 2019
I love Dr. Yen. I like that she asks a lot of questions and always listens to any questions or concerns I might have. The only downside is she is always booked and it could be a while before you can get in to see her. But when it's important you can always be squeezed in.

Yes, my daughter will be visiting Dr. Yen soon.

First time being seen by Dr. Yen. She is absolutely amazing. She made me feel understood and came up with a treatment plan with me instead of for me. Glad I finally found her when I did!
February 08, 2019
The person I spoke to on the phone was very helpful on getting me an appointment as soon as possible, the person that brought me into the examining Room showed care in asking questions to help the Dr. understand what my concerns are. Dr. Yen properly diagnosed me and I feel much better already.

Excellent provider
January 15, 2019
Sometimes people DO KNOW what's wrong with them! And going through test after test for "process of elimination" to me is just another way for me to pay and pay...I even got billed $390 for a mammogram at the Oncology center!...what's that about! Just so you and your billing department know, I will never pay.

This particular provider/physician is a fine example of a doctor that cares about her patients; encourages their participation in their care and really wants to hear what they have to say. She respects the input from her patients and any suggestions/questions they may have for alternate care scenarios, medications, or other input. Kindly and clearly explains care plan and works with other disciplines to get the best outcomes for the patient.

September 13, 2018
I just referred a friend to Dr Yen & she loved her.
September 13, 2018
Dr. Yen is professional and courteous. She seems to be in a rush although she did take the time to do all the exams and discuss all test results from the lab. I personally was looking for a doctor that helps patients manage health based on test results. After all, we are not just organisms that are represented by test results. From my only appointment with her (which may be a limited experience), it seems that Dr. Yen is more "by-the-book" kind of doctor. Not sure if it's due to level of experience, lack of time or anything else.
