Excellent visit. Had to take time filling out new patient info. I could have done that on line. Once I completed the paperwork I was seen. She answered all questions and gave a thorough exam. She gave me a computer printout of the visit which I found quite helpful. I would recommend Dr. Yao to a friend.

Very informative and knowledgeable in her area. Liked the fact that she took the time to work w my child during the appt and asked questions to get to know his health history better. Also liked the fact she didnt just easily prescribe him medication before givin him a diagnosis. Will definitely come to her for future ENT visits

Dr. Yao is amazing and knows what she is doing! My mom and I were really impressed by her and I learned more about my allergies from her than from my allergist! She makes sure you understand everything and I will for sure be coming back and recommend her to anyone that needs an ENT.
