I was completely impressed with Dr. Yip. she was considerate and gave full explanation of my problem. she obviously read my chart fully because she asked questions concerning prior surgeries and lab reports. she explained that if I needed surgery she would involve my other surgeons due to airway risks. she sat and allowed time for questioning and answered them fully. I felt that I was the most important person in that room. although it was she who was.
