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!

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.
