She has a warm personality. She was the only doctor that took the time to explain what she can do for me in my situation. I was given the run around and scared thinking I could have cancer from Loyola. I met with Dr.Yang one time and knew I wanted her to do my surgery. She was the only one to not have my only option be a hysterectomy. The surgery went better than expected and I am so grateful for a caring doctor!

Endometriosis has been a nightmare for me for years. Dr. Yang took the time to listen to my history and concerns, thoroughly explaining options for imaging and treatment. I was previously unaware of the amount of options I have, and how I can improve my quality of life as well. Dr. Yang is knowledgeable, personable and has left me feeling hopeful.

She listened to what I was going through and asked good questions. I have a family history of complex gynecological problems and the possibility of my problems being connected to my family history was NOT dismissed as “unlikely” and left un-investigated. Instead she suggested pelvic floor therapy and tests to investigate possible causes. I really wish every woman had access to a Dr. Yang.

I was admitted through the emergency room and during my week long stay I had visits from many doctors. Dr Yang hands down was the doctor that stood out far above all. From my initial interaction with her I felt very comfortable with Dr Yang and like she actually cared about recommending the best treatment plan for my overall wellbeing versus just pushing possibly unnecessary procedures. After being released from the hospital I specifically sought out Dr Yang to assist with my ongoing Gynecological needs and I’m so glad I did. Would highly recommend her!!!

Dr. Yang was so thorough with the important details of the surgery that I was inquiring about as far as my health was concerned. She made me feel so comfortable to open up and explain my concerns that I had about the surgery that I want to go through with it.
