"Took so much time to fully understand what I was saying, and worded things in a helpful way. Worked with me from the beginning to the end very consistently. Highly recommended!"
"Just had a visit with Dr. Yao. He is very kind and caring. Asked many questions and listened to my questions as well. Just switched my primary physician and decided to go with Dr. Yao from now on."
"Alexa Gross is A+ in my book! Welcome to Dr. Yao's group!!"
"The doctor and office staff were great! I'm very happy with all of them and will be switching my general medical care to this office.However, it took a while to see the doctor because there was a problem with the forms I filled out on Zocdoc. There should be a notification for the doctor's office that a patient has completed the forms and even though all of the information was there, the forms were formatted differently from the doctor's office so it took a while for them to transfer the information into their system. There should be a place for doctors' offices to add their own forms in Zocdoc so this confusion is avoided. "
"Dr. Yao is nice and friendly. He listened to my concerns about some things and helped me to feel better. I can only recommend to visit him."
