I am very happy to have Dr. Yip as my surgeon. She is a very kind, caring and skilled doctor. I researched on line and am very glad I chose her. I will highly recommend her!

September 15, 2016

Very nice. Everyone I spoke with.

September 01, 2016

I was extremely impressed with every aspect of my visit. The support staff members were efficient, knowledgeable and caring. Dr. Yip, her assistant physician, the ultrasound technician, and nurse conducted examinations and asked questions that were approximately 4 times more extensive than my previous provider. Therefore, I feel that the second opinion that I received regarding my thyroid nodule was the bests, most informed opinion possible.

I have seen Dr. Yip once a year since 2014 and have had the best care. Dr. Yip is wonderful. She was clear and concise regarding my diagnosis and treatment plan. she always gives me all the time i need to ask questions. She makes me feel that she truly cares about me the person, not just another case.
