Wonderful Outcome

Dr Yeung, Chad and the entire team gave me a wonderful outcome. My spinal stenosis had prevented me from standing or walking for more than 20 minutes without my legs going numb. Dr Yeung said he could solve my problem and he did. One year after surgery, I am completely symptom free and have my life back. Chris and Chad took the time to fully explain the procedure and answer my questions clearly and thoroughly. I couldn't be happier with the outcome. I would highly recommend this team to others.

MIRACULOUS. I have my dad back!! I never would have thought it was possible.

We were frantically desperate to relieve my dad's back pain. Epidurals and multiple treatments to mask pain were unsuccessful. Finally we were referred to Dr. Christopher Yeung, who diagnosed my father's problem in a flash. MRIs then confirmed the severity and need for immediate surgery. Dr. Yeung moved his schedule around while we waited (took an hour) and showed great concern for my father's condition. His office manager, Kelly, reassured us and his P.A., Chad White, gave us additional confidence. SUCH PROFESSIONALS! Now it's a month later and my father is walking and behaving as if he never had a back problem. Yes, he's careful not to do lots of things just yet, but no one would ever guess he just had very serious back surgery. Kelly made all the difference! She held our hands and stayed in constant contact through the procedure and recovery process. She showed constant compassion and even shared personal stories, which left us feeling heard, respected, understood and even valued. What an enlightening and positive experience we can report in the midst of real fear and paralyzing unknown. Back surgery, under the best of circumstances, is scary. If ANYONE I know has a spine/back problem, I will direct them to Dr. Yeung. I have complete confidence in his skills and expertise, and I highly recommend the practice. Thank you Kelly, Chad and Dr. Yeung!!!!! I have my dad back. Nothing is more wonderful.

Excessive Wait TImes...No Doctor

As the old saying goes, if I could give worse than 1 star I would. This is by far one of the most unprofessional medical practices I have ever been to. If you want a professional doctor and if you want to be treated with respect DO NOT GO HERE. I promise you that you are going to have a wait. I had three separate appointments with this facility each with above normal wait times. The first appointment I waited 1 hour to see the doctor. The second appointment I waited 1.5 hours, which I left because I could not wait for the doctor, and rescheduled. The third appointment was 1.25 hours before I saw the doctor. Besides the waiting when I did finally get to see the doctor on my third visit, the doctor never even came in to see me. Dr. Chris Yeung, sent in hi PA to see me, I mean really the practice doesn't even have the ability to send in an actual MD to see me and review my results. Maybe his golf game was running long that day, or he was too bust playing Candy Crush, but Dr. Chris Yeung is by far the worst and most unprofessional doctor I have ever been to. To top it all off I have been waiting for weeks to have them fill a prescription. My insurance denied one of the ingredients in a compounding cream, and the compounding pharmacy has tried to reach this facility multiple times and the Doctors office is not responding to the pharmacy, therefore I do not have my prescription. On my third visit, the one where I never saw a doctor and was thrown to a PA, well on this visit I was told by Chad White that he would personally make sure the prescription was filled that day. Here we are a week later and guess what, yep, NO PRESCRIPTION. So not only does Dr., Yeung not do his job, but the PA Chad White doesn't follow through either. Well hopefully my experience steers you in the right direction when doing research on Spine Doctors. Oh yeah I almost forgot, I am not new to the doctor surgical world I come from a family of physicians and I understand proper etiquette when it comes to bed side manner, and proper business culture. Unfortunately this business has neither. Additionally, I have been to an orthopedic surgeon in Beverly Hills for a previous Microdiskectomy and I know how a patient should be treated. Now imagine if you were going in for surgery with this practice....YIKES!!!!

Great doctor!

Working with Dr. Yeung was a life changing experience. Prior to my surgery, I suffered from chronic neck pain, causing shooting pains up and down my arms. I was unable to spend time with my family the way that I wanted due to the constant pain. Now that I have had the surgery, I feel like me again. My family and I truly thank Dr. Yeung for his help. I would highly recommend his services!

Gave me my life back

I had been in torture for over six weeks. Chad White saw the slipped disc on my MRI and Dr. Yeung operated within the next week. I had IMMEDIATE relief. I have also sent several other people to Disc and when they did not think surgery was appropriate , they suggested other methods.
