Dr. Yang knew she wanted to be an ophthalmologist after discovering “a love of science and microscopes” at age 15.  She fosters open, honest patient relationships to be able to give the same kind of care she would to a family member.

A longtime Whittier resident, Dr. Yang likes playing the piano and indoor skydiving in her free time. Founder and president of the New York Medical College ballroom dancing club, she is also a member of NYMC Arrhythmias, an acapella group, and speaks Spanish and Taiwanese.

Patient Reviews

June 08, 2021
My appointment was at 3:00 and it took a long time I didn't leave until 5 pm it took to long but I am very happy with dr yang just took too long this time.
June 04, 2021
The doctor is very prepared and confident in her specialty. Unfortunately, the wait is long. I'm sure you spend all your time with your patients. I don't know what, exactly, could be done, because that time is important for the patient, but the waiting is also annoying. I am concerned that since my case is for macular degeneration, there is no medicine that insurance covers, in which case I will have to go to private resources to get it.
June 03, 2021
Dr Yang was professional when she saw me at her office. She explained in details when she examined my eyes .
June 02, 2021
Provider was courteous and caring.
May 21, 2021
Dr. Yang is an excellent, and extremely thorough doctor. My husband was beyond pleased with his previous cataract surgery by Dr. Yang and I am confident of receiving great care with my upcoming surgery.
May 21, 2021
The wait time was much longer than I expected. However, this was due to a couple of emergency visits, so to me, it was an acceptable wait time. Because this is a busy office I often do have a somewhat long wait time, but I don't mind because I always receive the best care.
May 20, 2021
Dr Yang is very Professional, courteous and does a complete work up when she examined me as always. I always feel a great deal of trust and confidence in how I'm treated by her and her staff.
May 20, 2021
The waiting time to be seen by this doctor is extremely long, my appointment was at 3:45 pm and she saw me at about 5:30 pm, and there were not that many people in the waiting room! There is no consideration for the patients!

Waited almost 2 hrs to be seen by doctor -- then another 1/2 hr to exit -- can understand doctors falling behind on appointments, but two hours??????

I had to wait too long I had a 3 o'clock appointment and I didn't get out to almost 6 o'clock and sat there most of time doing nothing so I was very unhappy with that. But my wife has another doctor in the same office which I think I'm going to try next time for my eyes. Thank you.
April 30, 2021
Great doctor & friendly & courteous staff. However, doctor was running 1 1/2 hours behind. It would be nice if staff would call you prior to your appointment that day & let you know. Staff only lets you know this once you get to the office & at this time will provide you with an option to reschedule your appointment.

March 23, 2021
I appreciate the fact that Dr. Yang speaks English slowly and distinctly she's very easy to understand. She uses words that I know and if I don't know it she's very quick to explain it to me.

A very professional and interesting physician that really pays attention to patients.
August 14, 2020
Dr Yang and her staff were fantastic. I was scared because my vision in my right deteriorated so quickly and my optometrist told me it was from a cataract. Dr Yang diagnosed a retinal tear and her staff called and found me a retinal specialist that could see that same day. If Dr Yang hadn't taken the time to listen to me and preform a thorough exam I would have lost my sight in my right eye. Thank you Dr Yang
