    About our process

    She did not discuss why this problem has occurred and neither showed the confidence in the treatment option. It was me who showed concern to tapper off the medication but I am not convinced that she did not show a positive / confident treatment option to cure the Illness.

    One of the best care visits I've ever had - especially for a remote call. Super impressed and grateful.

    Provider not always familiar with my particular case. Provider has not provided help and guidance for sleeping problems unrelated to apnea.

    Dr. Yuen sent the notes and summary on MyChart immediately (same day) as the appointment which has never happened before. I was very impressed and pleased!! I just left a MyChart message for the provider's office to see when they are scheduling my sleep study.

    Great caring and genuine. Hard to find these qualities in a doctor.

    I felt that Dr. Yuen wanted to answer all of my questions but she time ran out of time and had to cut me off. This was not her fault but it does point to a problem with the time allotted for a follow-up appointment to discuss a sleep study. We needed to go over a long report which took almost the entire 30 minutes and left little time for questions. Since this is the only follow-up appointment I'm left with a lot of questions and my sleep study is less useful as a result. I think a 45-60 minute follow-up appointment is more appropriate.

    This was the best visit that I've had with a provider. She was kind and compassionate and extremely thorough. All of my questions were answered and I learned a lot. I was very appreciative of the amount of time and thoroughness of the visit. It was truly excellent.

    The most comprehensive consultation that I have ever had for this condition
    Sep 30, 2020
    I ended up going days without a sleep side and still haven't resolved the issue because the doctor was not available and the insurance doesn't cover the medication she ordered. big mess and no sleep

    the electronic portal can improve A LOT. I can't tell if my messages have been read. it takes a long time to get a response if ever. I can't schedule an appointment online. Putting in an appointment "request" is worthless. it basically means I need to call and talk to a human being and that usually means ONE HOUR of hold time on the phone. this is 1990 technology not 21st century technology.
