I started coming to Northwestern in 1994, after experiencing a brain aneurysm and a stroke. Unfortunately, I had to leave for a short period due to issues with my medical insurance. It wasn't until I became eligible for medicare, that I was able to return to the doctors of more choice. I live in Frankfort, Illinois; however, I do not hesitate to travel the distance for your outstanding service.

I have been a patient of Dr. Yi for many years and I cannot praise her enough for all the help she has given me all these years. If my healthcare needs necessitated a referral to other physicians within the Northwestern community she has never directed me wrong. She is compassionate and always listened to all my concerns and never failed to help me. I absolutely would refer her to anyone looking for a physician that is caring and excels in her field of internal medicine. No one has ever showed me that much care and concern for my wellbeing. She is absolutely the BEST!!
