Ratings for Dr. John Yee
To Whom It May Concern, Today I turn 60. Because Dr Yee LISTENED to my story of a 16 year struggle with severe reflux disease, horrible abdominal pain every single time I ate, acid aspirations 3-4 x/week, loss of 100 pounds in just over a year because it hurt too much to eat and the most daunting being told by 8 doctors both GP and Specialists that "my case was hopeless, go home, cope, accept that you are going to die an early death, you are disabled." All my teeth broke off or fell out from the severe acid reflux always in my mouth, I was afraid to go anywhere except the grocery store as I never knew if I opened my mouth to speak there would be acid or stomach contents shooting out my mouth onto the floor which it did many times. I even had to quite often flush food particles out of my sinuses as the acid would exit my nose and ears too. For 16 years I put up with this nightmare. I had a large hiatus hernia, my esophagus had burn scars and was no longer swallowing normally, plus the valve that separates the esophagus from the stomach acid was scarred wide open so I had acid fluid up in my esophagus 24/7 which really burned. My stomach had a twist at the top of it and at the bottom plus an avulsion at the small bowel junction. Dr. Yee did a 5 hour surgery to repair all the above and give me the first sleep that lasted longer than 2 hours at night without a single drip of acid reflux in 16 years. I am so VERY grateful to this great surgeon. I recommend him to anybody that has a difficult "hopeless" case. Signed D Brown, Kamloops, BC
I would like to say that Dr. Yee is like no other doctor I've ever seen he saved my father's life my dad had arteries that were 85% clogged and he was very weak Dr. Yee gave him a five way bypass surgery and he's doing great Surgery was on January 4, 2016 He has made a full recovery almost back to his old self from the bottom of my heart doctor yee from my family 👌👍🏻we love you have a great day everyone thank u
I almost don't believe him to be a regular human being as he works so hard, has long hours, gets very little sleep and is still so comforting and reassuring to his clients and their families. They're are not enough doctors out there like this and we were truly blessed he fell upon our family
Dr.John Yee operated on me on February 22,2016. I had a malignant typical Carcinoid tumour in my left upper lung ...Stage 1. Dr.Yee removed a segment with minimal invasion , he took extra time during the operation complicated by my scioliosis in my spine. He is a very skilled in his field with hands of a brilliant surgeon. I agree, he is one in a million. He is a Godsend...Thank you Dr. Yee!
My sister went to Dr. John Yee and she said he is the best surgeon I have ever had. Intelligent, knowledgeable, takes time to explain things to you, doesn't hurry and is extremely caring. I have been with many surgeons but not one as good as him. She would highly recommend him to anyone.
My mom had stage 3 aggressive lung cancer. From having been told by the respiratory specialist that surgery was NOT an option...John Yee assured her that he could do it. He knows what he can do, and he is also extremely caring of the patient and their family. He worked closely with the radiation and medical oncologists to make sure everyone was on the same path. There are not enough words I can find to thank this man. My mom is apparently cancer free now.
Dr. Yee was my surgeon and operated on me in 2009. He told me he would take curative approach to my esophageal cancer and here, almost 7 years later, I believe he did just that. My life is virtually normal and I am as active as any of my contemporaries. I and my family will always be grateful. I can only reinforce the comments made on this site by others - top notch!
