Specialties

Dr. Richard X Yan has the following 3 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Don't ask too many questions!

Dr. Yan is friendly until you ask intelligent questions. When I asked about the efficacy of a medication he became irate and said that if I did not take the medication I would die! He is impatient and condescending! I am looking for another doctor.

TERRIBLE BED MANNERS

I was hospitalized had the misfortune of having DR Yan as the primary. He is very cold doesn't provide any reassuring advice. Has very poor bedside manner. The in house doctors were more helpfull and provided all the negative/positive updates as well as providing comfort. He would not visit for days. When he did come would only spend less than 5 minutes providing nothing but a bad attitude. You have to pull info from him. It seems that he can't be bothered. However he did manage to bill for a daily visit. I should have reported his lack of service.
