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.

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 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.

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.
