He help me with my pain.
Patient | October 25, 2018

Dr. Yang is an extraordinary doctor. He listened very carefully and explained, in detail, the procedure. I asked a lot of questions, and he never was impatient. He not only answered my questions, he also explained his thinking. He is friendly and very thoughtful. My only regret was that when I got home after the injection in my lower back, I wasn't really sure what I was supposed to do besides call my neurologist.

This was my third treatment and all my experiences have been great.

Patient | April 3, 2018

I would highly recommend Dr. Yang to family or friends. he takes time to listen as well as putting me at ease during my procedures.
Patient | March 26, 2018

I felt rushed during the appt and even though the doctor was very nice, I didn't feel he was very concerned about my problem which was a bit frustrating because it was something that was causing me chronic pain. I understand compared to other patients that come in, my situation might seem trivial, but it does cause me a great deal of pain at time so I would have liked a little more sensitivity to that.
Patient | March 26, 2018
