Wait times

SHC Patient, Sep 2015

Dr. Yang seemed to be a very competent, as well as personable doctor. However, most of the visit was with his assistant/intern. Dr. Oppondo. Dr. Oppondo did not ask us to wait for Dr. Yang and would not discuss some additional medication problem because she "did not have enough time". We only were able to talk to Dr. Yang in the hallway as we were leaving. We would definitely come back to Dr. Yang.

SHC Patient, Jun 2015

Excellent as always.

SHC Patient, May 2015

He explained everything to me in a way that was easy for anyone to understand.

SHC Patient, Mar 2015

Good.

SHC Patient, Sep 2014

Sent out report of echocardiogram with no personal comments or explanation of findings.

SHC Patient, Mar 2014

I feel lucky to be seeing Dr Yang I have referred my daughter in law and we are both very pleased.
