21/06/12 3 2 5 4 Yes, there are often long waits in the waiting room, but not always. Dr Yang is very hard working and works long hours to try and see everyone. I have never felt she rushes me during my appt and never felt she gives preference to her oriental patients. When I ask for a referral to a specialist, she always agrees. I have been with her for 25 years and would not change doctors for all the tea in China.  Respond

05/05/10 1 2 3 5 I waited 18 months for a physical that took 10min and felt rushed. My friend got booked a physical and he got one in 3 months. I brought this to the receptionists attention and she dismissed me. Long waits for short visits if you are under forty. Very rushed appointments. She seems smart just no time for some people.  Respond

25/01/10 1 1 1 1 the long waiting time is not her help. she doesn't know how to speak properly, she misdiagnosed me and prescribed whatever medication she could think of twice in a row and i had to be admitted into the hospital. she doesn't give you direct answers to your questions either. she needs to retire or work in manual labour or something  Respond

28/10/09 4 1 5 5 I have been a patient of Dr. Yang's for over 25 years. Your appt is never on time, but never do you wait more than a couple of days to see her, so weight the pros and cons there. I find Dr. Yang very knowledgeable and always willing to discuss options. I don't find she's ever ignored me for her Chinese clientelle. The receptionists are pleasant and hospitable, but very very busy.  Respond

23/03/09 5 1 5 4 I've been with Dr. Yang for almost eight years now. I think her staff are quite professional and pleasant, in person and on the phone. The punctuality issue - well isn't that a problem with the entire healthcare system? Anyways when I do see Dr. Yang, she's always well composed and not harried which makes me believe she's worth the weight. She is opinionated and frank, so I find that I work with her well, since I like working with such people. The people she refers are hit and miss, I'm not sure if its a reflection of her connections or of the overall (lack of) quality of specialists in the Ottawa region. I consider myself to be proactive about taking care of my own wellness so she is a good expert member to have on my team.  Respond

06/02/09 4 2 5 5 Dr. Yang is a wonderful physician. She does her job extremely well and our family has a great deal of confidence in her abilities. She is compassinate and interested in the families that she treats which, in this day and age, is rate. It's usually a "you're in you're out" visit but Dr. Yang makes time to listen to your concerns. Granted, the wait can be long but it is worth it.As far as her staff, you couldn't find more pleasant people.  Respond

06/02/09 5 2 4 4 I am not sure what people are referring too.. Both receptionist are amazing, helpful and accommodating. I have dropped in many times with my sick daughter.. they`ve always told me that there is a wait but i am glad Dr. Yang saw us.. other doctors - they won`t even see you. As for Dr. Yang - she is beyond fabulous.. I am extremely happy with her.. She always double check everything and listens to our smallest worries or concerns.. I highly recommend her.. One bad thing is the wait time.. but she does take alot of time with patients that is why she is delayed.  Respond

05/12/08 2 1 3 3 Never on time. Preference to oriental patients-poor referal. Receptionist arogant.  Respond

28/10/08 1 1 1 1 Dr. Yang is the worst doctor I've ever had. Wait time is long. She wastes time on idle talk during my visits; never really spends time on matter at hand. I saw her during my pregnancy and she didn't get me an appointment with an OB until very late in my third trimester. Although it's probably unrelated, I ended up having preterm labor. I ended up only seeing my OB twice. I have switched doctor since then.  Respond

02/09/08 1 1 4 4 Her judgement is sometimes very biased. Her receptionist/staff is extremely rude. She is over booked and her pateints have to be made waiting for at least 30-45 minutes. My friend switched to other doctor because of her mis-diagnosis that causes her mom to have a stroke. Make sure you demand lab lab and take charge of your own health. Don't rely on Dr. Yang to detect the disease for you and it will be too late.  Respond
RID: 599646
26/05/08 1 1 1 1 She has absolutely no idea what she is talking about. She will give you a diagnosis with absolute certainty and a straight face even if she does not know the answer at all. My dad has disease of the veins causing his legs to blacken and retain water she recommended that he wear long pants and cover it! His legs could rot due to this. My sister suffered from severe anxiety and she recommended that she take anti depressants which the specialist could not believe was prescribed to her. You will wait at least 2-3 hours while she councils chinesse families and takes her time with them and rushes you out like chop liver. STAY AWAY. Her staff is barely high school educated.  Respond

09/04/08 4 1 4 4 Once you get to know the receptionists, they are very nice. I agree with the rest of the people who'd commented....I wait for at least 30 minutes. She is definitely over booked. During the appointment, sometimes I feel I am rushed.  Respond

21/03/08 1 1 3 4 Her receptionist is rude and not professional. Does Dr. Yang know about this? My friend's mom had a stroke while Dr. Yang sent her home for flu treatment. My other friend's mom felt dizzy all the times because Dr. Yang gave her the wrong drug.  Respond

19/03/08 1 1 3 4 Terrible wait time and rude receptionist. Even though Dr. Yang is a generally good family physician, her staff is definitely yet to be desired.  Respond
RID: 513613
14/02/08 5 1 5 3 She's a patient and empathetic doctor who listen's to you. She's knowledgeable, but opinionated. A bit closed minded to non-western treatments and therapies, but i suppose that is common amongst most MDs. Overall I think she's a good doctor - she's tries her best and works very long hours to server her patients.  Respond

15/09/07 4 1 5 5 Dr. Yang has never been on time for any of my appointments, I usually wait 45-60 minutes from my scheduled time to get in to see her. I would like to say it is always worth the wait and I never feel rushed when seeing her. She is very helpful and knowledgeable.  Respond
