Not only is Dr. Yip an excellent doctor--with excellent technical skills and people skills--but it is very helpful that blood can be drawn in her office, the staff is helpful with setting up appointments both within and outside her office, and she and her staff make me feel welcome to ask questions even after the appointment.

Dr. Yip is a fantastic surgeon and seems to take a personal interest in her patients. I am so thankful that I had her for my surgeon.RE: follow-up I am probably looking for a doctor who does more thorough thyroid blood tests and who takes into account symptoms more. She DOES take into account symptoms but she and the fellow did not seem particularly concerned about symptoms that are very bothersome to me. I understand that she is first and foremost a surgeon, though! I would recommend her to anyone!
