About Dr. Yao
Dr. Michael Yao has over 29 years of medical experience.

He is board certified in both Family Medicine and Geriatrics. He has spent much of his career teaching medicine to medical students and residents.
The landscape of medicine is constantly changing. Dr. Yao believes that helping patients keep up with the latest developments is important for them to take charge of their health. He believes that physicians should focus on communication and transparency with their patients about their health concerns.
His advice to patients is to “never give up; always focus on moving forward with your health goals.” Dr. Yao urges his patients to never be afraid to ask questions. He strongly recommends patients see a physician with whom they are comfortable with; so each patient has a level of trust that allows them to be completely open about their health.
Dr. Yao and his wife, Amy, reside in Frisco, TX. They have two children, Carolyn and Justin. Their family regularly practices activities that involve cardio and weight training. Other activities Dr. Yao enjoys are drawing, reading, watching movies, and studying Classical and Biblical Greek.

"Was efficient and the physician spent a good amount of time with me. Great experience."
"I saw Dr. Yao yesterday. I’m usually seeing Dr. Hall, but Dr. Yao was available. He was friendly, thorough and knowledgeable. Thank you!"
"I've used VHP for a long time now, and have always been treated very well there. My previous doctor left, so I decided to try one of their new doctors that had transferred to Mckinney from another location, Dr. Yao. I was very impressed. Dr. Yao spent a lot of time with me, was very personable and intelligent, and asked all the right questions. More importantly, he listened well, and established a great doctor/patient relationship for future visits. When I left his office, I told him he was definitely my new doctor. Don't hesitate to give him a try."
"My experience with Dr. Yao has been amazing! He’s a knowledgeable doctor and I would recommend all my family and friends to him!"
"Village Health Partners is great and Dr. Yao is a big reason why. He is extremely easy to talk to and he's a great listener as well. He makes you feel at ease from the moment he enters the room. He is very professionsl, knowledgable, thorough, and compassionate. Dr. Yao exceeded all my expectations. I give Village Health Partners and Dr. Yao my highest recommendation."
