Specialties

Dr. John I Yam has the following 2 specialties

  • Pediatrics

    A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
    While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
    Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Spends zero time. Super Busy (Must be seeing lots of patients every day)

Never answers questions. Never explains any thing. Hardly spends any time (may be two or three minutes) and then walks away. Doesn't listen or try to understand. Switched to a different doctor and has been very happy.

bad service from the billing department

Rude/Arrogant attitude from the appointment desk and bill departments. I have insurance and been going to the office for many years. Still, I keep getting talked to by the staff as "The doctor does not want to deal with you"

One Star

Doesn't like him at all. Always make me wait for almost one hour and just said a few sentences. I feel he is always super busy to care next patitent. Not a reliable doctor because he doesn't care patient's disease and feelings.

Best Doctor I've Seen

I started working at Microsoft after my MBA at Wharton. My friend recommended his doctor, Dr. John Yam, to me when I had a bad cold. He ordered a chest X ray right away and diagnosed pneumonia. I got better in a two days after taking antibiotics and rest. I'm very lucky to have him as my doctor.
