Dr. Yip is an excellent surgeon, but beyond that, she is a caring and compassionate doctor who makes herself available to her patients at all times. I'm glad I chose her and would highly recommend her!

I have to say I have been to so many providers for my thyroid. This office and Dr. Yip was the best. I wish I could see her all the time. She made me feel like I was a human and didn't look at me like I was crazy. My PCP treated me like the thyroid wasn't doing the things I knew it was doing, I couldn't even swallow. Dr. Yip was amazing. She is really educated on the Thyroid and I trust her 110%.
