Dr. Yo and the nurse Katie spend a lot of time with me. We talked about my responsibilities as I transition into adulthood
an excellent provider!!
Dr Yo was very polite and informative despite being limited by lack of medical records from St V and ability (d/t network outage) to see previous records. he was very thorough regardless
Dr. Yo was awesome and even called me at home to follow up on my visit. We are really happy to have found him and excited to have him on our care team
this provider was wonderful and explained everything to both of us
He's amazing! He's very caring and takes the time to talk to my child at every visit about her life and activities, school, friends, sports, family, etc. We couldn't ask for a better doctor for her!
Dr is very thorough and takes our concerns seriously. He responds quickly to questions on the portal.
Dr. Yo is an exceptional doctor. He works well with children and breaks information down in a way that is easy to understand. We discuss long term plans and I am confident in his decision making for our daughter. We have been seeing Dr. Yo since December 2014 and have never had a bad experience.
Always nice, supportive
I appreciate Dr. Yo himself contacting me regarding lab results in a timely manner.
very thorough and quick response time regarding test results
he was excellent. thank you!
Dr. Yo was awesome with my son. He really takes the time to get to know his patients on a personal level. He talks slowly and clearly so we all can understand.
I thought this physician was excellent. very knowledgeable and took time the review my child's medical records prior to his visit and made that clear. he also consulted the physician my child saw in the hospital to get on the same page. the best part was the time he took with my actual child. my child is very interested in his condition and wants to be informed. dr. yo took time to personally talk to my son in words and terms that he could understand and it brought tears to my eyes how well he interacted with my son.
This was the first time we had seen this doctor. He was amazing! I wish all doctors were as caring and thorough.
Dr. Yo is very kind and down-to-earth. He always asks both my husband and I if we have questions. He provided us with a comparison of where our son was last year to where he is now and he also told us what to expect in the future. He puts us at ease and we are very comfortable with his expertise. We are also grateful for the satellite offices that save us some travel time.
The MD was very attentative to my concerns about my daughter's health
The provider was amazing and I would recommend him to friends and family
Dr. Yo listened to and answered all the questions my child and I had during the visit.
We could not ask for a better Nephrologist for our child's care!!!!
Dr "Yo" is awesome! He's very thorough and has a calming manner. We did not feel rushed during the appointment.
other than being at the appointment for over 2 hours and not seeing the provider for the first hour the visit was fine.
wait time from time of appointment to getting into an exam room was 50 minutes.
Aways excellent care!
I just found out recently that they diagnosed my son with stage 1 kidney disease. The doctor didn't tell me but I didn't ask either I just took the information that he gave me.
great work keep it up!!!
very good with children. asked my child about school and what she likes to do.
everyone works great as a team really treat children with respect
I appreciate that since the beginning the doctor always calls me with test results instead of having the nurse do it....he then answers the resulting questions to keep my mind at ease!
