I had two doctors do my initial evaluation before meeting with Dr. Yip. The primary doctor was very thorough and asked good questions. The other doctor seemed to observe only, however, he was very friendly and took an interest in a comment I made. Dr. Yip was very friendly and helped me understand the necessity of the procedure I am scheduled to have.

Dr. Yip is very good at explaining any procedures or surgeries you may need. And very good at explaining the reasons why you were there to see her to begin with.
