    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted.

  • 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.

I absolutely love Dr. Yap, I have worked in the healthcare field for many years and recognize a good doc when I see one! I find that Dr. Yap is very compassionate, knows his stuff, and makes sure that when you leave his office you know and understand the issues that brought you to him. Dr. Yap is funny but not afraid to get serious with you if the need arises. His staff is great also and makes sure that all follow up procedures are taken seriously, they have give customer services. Very sweet girls.

Fired Him

Went to Dr. Yap bc his bio says he treats GI issues and "ab pain". His only recommendations for my ab pain after diag procedure was IBS and no follow-up plans. I did my own research, returned to his office and asked about additional testing, he didn't think it was necessary and again pushed me in the direction of IBS with no follow-up plan. Got a different doc and resolved all my symptoms with antibiotics. So, clinically, yes, I guess I had IBS - but it wasn't the lifelong, incurable condition and could have been easily tested/treated at this office. My advice is don't expect him to make an effort to try to help you with your GI problem. In fact, he became a roadblock to my wellness because I then had to go seek out a doc who could find a solution.

I thought Dr. Yap and his staff were very professional, kind, helpful. They were comforting and friendly during my colonoscopy. Dr. Yap discussed the results with me while undergoing the procedure and, again, afterwards on a follow-up appointment. I have recommended him to many friends. I am a nurse that happened to be given his name to see for the colonoscopy but did not know him before the procedure. He didn't know I was a nurse yet was very thorough in his explanation and diagnosis. I highly recommend him!
