Specialties

Dr. Emily L Yee has the following 3 specialties

  • Critical Care Medicine

    Also sometimes referred to as intensivists, critical care specialists are physicians with specialized training in the diagnosis and management of life-threatening conditions. Some of these conditions affect vital organs like the heart and lungs, those that make breathing difficult or impossible, and those that affect entire organ systems, like the renal system.
    Critical care specialists are typically found in a hospital's intensive care unit where they monitor patients with life-threatening conditions and make determinations as to the best course of treatment.

  • Pulmonary Disease

    A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
    These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
    Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
    Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Compassionate Physician

Dr. Yee saw my daughter-in-law while she was in the hospital as a patient of another physician. The news we received was the worst imaginable and we needed to get home to another state. We couldn't find the right oxygen tank to allow us on a airplane. Dr. Yee was incredible, even offering to use all her contacts to try to find an acceptable oxygen source or help us get home. In this most difficult of circumstances this compassionate physician also took the time to offer a tender embrace to a crying mother-in-law.

Professional, yet caring

Dr. Yee had to give me some bad news, but was really caring and took time to answer all my questions, and followed up after my procedure by phone to see how I was doing. Thank you, Dr. Yee!

Patient and thorough

I have been very pleased with Dr. Yee. She asks a lot of questions and takes time to actually listen to the answers. She'll also take the time to listen to your questions and provide thoughtful answers. I've found that she takes a real interest in her patients rather than rushing in and out to move on to the next patient. Not only is she very personable but her treatment has given me a new lease on life. I go to the Monroeville office and the office staff is great; very professional and efficient.
