It has been years since I have had a doctor's appointment that was as informative and caring as the one with Dr. Yen. It was just absolutely incredible. [...] I'm absolutely left in awe.

Doctor Yen is sharp as they come. She had an excellent grasp of my issues, keyed in on important bits from my explanation, summarized clearly to me, provided reasonable possible root causes, recommended next steps, was very thorough. I see why she's in high demand.

Dr. Yen is always well informed, takes the time to answer my many questions and allows me to make informed decisions. Her physical exams are thorough and relevant to the problems at hand.

Not the best rapport or bedside manner, and this is a new physician for me so trust really hasn't been established yet. But I appreciate that she spent a good amount of time asking questions about my issue. But I don't know yet if she will be helpful and I left the appt wanting a second opinion.

Dr Yen was able to diagnose me correctly where others had failed. My only complaint is that the treatment of my issue has to wait another 6 weeks until she has another appointment. That is way too long. It makes me want to find a provider who can do the procedure much sooner. Having to wait in pain for 6 weeks with significant impact to lifestyle is really too long

Both my husband and I see Dr. Yen; her care is top notch.She is careful, caring, and clearly at the top of her profession (World Games physician). Swedish should be thankful she is on the staff, she is the gold standard. As a senior citizen who treasures staying active (hiking the Grand Canyon, biking) she is the one I am counting on to keep me going.

Dr Yen strikes me as a very intelligent and compassionate doctor.

03/22/2017
Dr. Yen had the confidence in her skills and training to provide surgical consultations for my condition. She confirmed that it will not go away by itself and likely cannot respond to exercise or physical therapy. I have those two consults scheduled, and I will follow up with her in 6 weeks.

I was originally given an appointment in a month, but asked to be on a wait list. I was called two days later with an available slot. I really appreciated that.

Amazing doctor: she was prepared, did an amazing exam and spent time discussing differential diagnosis thoroughly. she followed up on X-ray results quickly and gave thorough treatment advice. warm excellent bedside manner.

communication was difficult for me as the medical terms such ask specific names of muscles and tendons were not easily understood

02/12/2017
She was rushed "canned" on what she said - assuming that she can prescribe treatment w/o x-rays review; I would like personal explanation of x-rays & also prognosis.

02/12/2017
Again, I think VERY highly of Dr. Yen. But I would not recommend her practice to anyone else because of the wait times for scheduling appointments and treatment.

02/01/2017
Dr. Yen provides the best level of care - I would recommend her and trust her recommendations explicitly.

Dr. Yen is very knowledgeable & easy to talk to. I thought she talked a little too fast and I had a hard time absorbing everything she said but I find this true w/most doctors.

Quite possibly one of the best doctor experiences I've had in the past 5 years at least.

I am a retired physician with a passion for fitness. Dr. Yen evaluated my troublesome shoulder. She did an exemplary job. I could not have been more pleased with my care.
