Office run poorly!!

Dr. Yee is nice, and once you are seen, he is good, but the office is run horribly. You can not speak to a person on the phone. Information is not sent for insurance approval. 50/50 chance a call to the office is returned at all. I needed an MRI it took three weeks to get the office to order it correctly. So I couldn't make my follow up and had to reschedule but they are very booked so that is more waiting. If you go get a morning appointment or as they over book. Some people have told me they waited hours.

Above expectations!

I’ve been seeing Dr. Yee for 3 years now and I can only say wonderful things about this Doctor and his entire staff. He’s the most compassionate and caring Doctor I’ve ever met. I mean words can’t describe how he has helped my shoulder and neck problems. His staff matches perfect with the Doctor. They call back the same day you leave a voicemail and they’re very friendly and professional. They help you with anything you need. I recommend this doctor to anyone. After you see Dr. Yee you will never see another Orthopedic Doctor because he’s nothing but the best.

Only the Best!

I have been seeing Dr. Yee and his staff for over 10 years. I am a 70 year old full figured woman. He and his staff have been giving me shots for severe arthritis and have NEVER suggested surgery. This is what I respect the most. I do take the generic form of celebrex on a regular basis. I do (the senior citizen version of) zumba and I dance 2 nights a week. I have recommended him very often to friends who are suffering with their knees and absolutely before they consider knee replacement.

Good doctor, awful staff

I was able to get a quick appointment for my injured knees. When it came time for a follow up appointment I had to make several phone calls, left several messages, even went to the office and still waited five days to get a call back. When they finally tried to schedule a follow up they said it would be at least two weeks before I could get an appointment. When I said I needed one sooner they said they had one three weeks away. When I said I would switch offices, they could care less. My dad referred me to him as he had his shoulder surgery there. It is a shame that his office staff is so terrible.
