Dr. Yang is very caring. I cannot imagine having a better neuro-care provider. She is compassionate. Her plans are always reasonable. She listens to my concerns and satisfactorily addresses them. I know the nature of Stanford as a training hospital. It is likely that she will be promoted, I agree. Her degree of care SHOULD be shared. Dr. Yang's accomplishments SHOULD be the standard for Stanford patient care. When she moves on, again -- she should be seen and promoted because she is TRULY AMAZING. I will miss her heart-full and careful considerations. I trust her replacement will work to meet Dr. Yang's expertise and ability to help reduce anxiety while building confidence in her and Stanford collectively. Godspeed; I'm grateful for your help and suggestions.

Dr Yang uses the technology to enhance the personal communication between doctor and patient. She asks well thought out questions and encourages significant discussions about patient questions.

Well done.
