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%.

Very kind and attentive. Spent as much time as we needed discussing surgery and post-op concerns. Never felt rushed to explain or talk about problems. Called me on the weekends to follow-up with x-ray/lab work. Feel very fortunate to have Dr. Yip as my Endo surgeon.
