Dr. Yang was amazing. Given I came to him with a cancer diagnosis already, he took his time to explain to me what he understood to be happening and how other various tests will help confirm more detail. He was patient, understanding and really showed compassion for our situation. My husband and I were both very pleased and at ease with his care.

Dr Yang can do no wrong in my opinion. He is a fast talker, but doesn't make me feel like he is rushing me. I get all the information I need, and he answers all the questions I have. He always considers my opinions when discussing options.
