Dr. Ka Wai Yam's Ratings
As GPs go she is friendly and easy to talk to be she is just that a GP. Don't expect her to analyze your condition til the cows come home. But overall like all GP's that have no specialized field she is great at writing up a reference to any specialist you do need for your problem. Though you do need to tell her the specialist you would like to see. Like I have a sinus problem can you ref an Eyes, Ears Nose and Throat Dr. I've been sluggish can you check my thyroid levels. If you get my drift. But after that BAM you walk out with a reference in hand. Which now a days is really all you can expect from a GP Medicine is too broad to know it all. She is nice and patient but knowledge outside of physicals, writing references to places requested and prescribing antibiotics or birth control prescriptions is about the max of her skill level.
Although Dr. Yam is friendly and genuine, she only investigates the easiest paths. She referred me to the wrong specialist which meant more delays and caused aggravation of my symptoms as none of my symptoms were addressed. By the time this is all sorted out, finding a new GP, getting proper referral, we are talking about over a year of wasted time.
As a side note: be careful: her staff is disorganized. I had to pay 20$ for no-show because an appointment was entered with the wrong date (or moved) in their system with a one day difference, even if I had their original reminder which showed the original date. The irony was that even if I showed-up a day too early, I still had to pay because if was too late according to their cancellation policy!
She is the best doctor I have ever had. Genuine, authentic, knowledgeable and professional without a hint of "move it a long". Her staff are amazing as well. Wish med schools would produce more like her!
I have been a patient of Dr. Yam's for approximately 2 years. I find her to be knowledgeable, patient, and easy to talk to. I find I never have to wait as the office is very organized and friendly. No matter what the issue is, she takes the time to make you feel important.
I've been going to Dr Yam over the past 2 years. I was looking for a doctor and found she was accepting new patients, and found she had good reviews online. She certainly has lived up those reviews for me. She takes her time to really listen, and you never feel like she's rushing you.She's professional and seems to genuinely want to help you. The office is well run as appointments start on time and the administrative staff do follow up with you when needed.
