Ratings for Dr. John Yee
Dr. Yee had been amazing and there are not enough words to describe how grateful we are for his care of my Father. Dad worked hard his whole life and never really took care of himself. He was too busy taking care of all of us. Shortly after retiring, he was diagnosed with lung cancer. He was overwhelmed and wanted to give up. When we met Dr.Yee, everything changed. Dr. Yee was so kind to my parents, took time to explain everything, answered every question we had, and was just incredible. My Father and Mother felt secure and confidential enough to go through surgery as a direct result of the time Dr. Yee spent with us. On the day of surgery, Dr. Yee met us in the morning for last minute questions. Four hours later, my Father was out of the operating room and talking to us! His operation was performed using a video camera and tiny incisions. He had no pain and went home in three days. Dr. Yee came every day to see him. We are so thankful to Dr. Yee and all the staff on the 12th floor at VGH.
I met Dr. Yee several years ago at VGH when i had a tension pneumothorax. After a traumatic experience with a chest tube (inserted by another doctor), i was left fearful of ever having another one. In the following months, I was admitted to emergency twice with two smaller pneumothoraces. Each time, the ER doctor wanted to insert a chest tube, but each time I asked that Dr. Yee be consulted first (he kindly gave me his cell number knowing my fear). Thanks be to God that Dr. Yee intervened each time because it turned out that those pneumothoraces healed on their own. It is now over 15 years later and i have not had or needed another chest tube. I am thankful to God for the ways He has used Dr. Yee to bless me and my family.
Dr Yee is a very knowledgable, caring, lovely, kind, patient, helpful and all-around wonderful person. Thankfully I did not have to have surgery and hopefully will not but if I do, I would absolutely trust this doctor. . I highly recommend him. He will talk to you and he will listen to you and he will help you. His receptionist, Elizabeth is also a very lovely and helpful person. Thank you both for being there when I needed you.
Dr. Yee and his team saved my life. I was at the absolute end of my rope with a condition called pulmonary fibrosis . I was on oxygen all the time and could barely get out of bed without turning blue. Every breath felt it would be my last and I was afraid to even fall asleep in case I would never wake up. Dr. Yee is an amazing surgeon and saved me with a double lung transplant. It's impossible to thank him enough. I am back to my normal life and have never felt better in years. My family and are forever grateful.
I wasn’t diagnosed with a very rare tumour and was sent to Dr.Yee and he is my angel. God bless him and his team. I’m coming into my 3rd week at the hospital and have seen him every single day. His bed side manner is not comparable to any dr I have ever dealt with. And his knowledge is above and beyond as well. Thank you for everything!
I was diagnosed with lung cancer and terrified. We called everybody we knew in the medical system and one name kept coming up as the best surgeon...Dr. Yee. He took care of me and exceeded every expectation. Being a great doctor starts with being a great person. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. God bless you Dr. Yee.
