"Dr. Yeh is phenomenal. I was in urgent need of care and she came to my rescue! She is clearly extremely knowledgeable-- and I so appreciated the time she took to put me at my ease and explain what was going on. She also quickly got to the heart of my issue and has been exceptionally thorough, responsive and kind. I couldn't have hoped for better care."
"It was very difficult to get an appointment with her but well worth the wait. She will explain things and make suggestions on your needs and is not "fat shaming" her manner is kind and understanding- she is also amazing at responding to messages. I am grateful for both she AND her assistant Evelyn Cruz who are very responsive."
"We had an excellent visit. Dr Yeh & staff were wonderful this was our first in person visit. She was very explanatory on my whole insulin usage. I would recommend her."
