The staff at Dr. Yip's office is very friendly, competent and caring. I would recommend Dr. Yip and her team to anyone I know in need of her specialized services.

It is almost becoming a habit finding reasons to see Dr. Yip. It is a shame that I had to result to getting Cancer to see her. And as usual, I came away feeling glad that I went. Always with a smile on my face. Life is good. What an inspiration.
