Dr Yam is not supportive when it comes to your health. She told me that I better not think of having another child and I should loose weight. She's my doctor and she should be supportive and shouldn't say that. I didn't get a good vibe from Dr. Yam I told her that I wanted to get an IUD instead of using birth control pills and when I did get the IUD it fell out after few months and when I told her she said I'm glad it fell out. If your looking for a good doctor I would not recommend Dr Yam. The staff are always rude,unorganized and unprofessional.

She is extremely friendly and puts me at ease every time I see her. She is easy to talk to and understands my health problems in a a way that other doctors have not. She is a gem of an MD!

Dr. Yam is an excellent GP. I usually have a list of questions to ask her each visit, and she is always gracious and answers my queries to my satisfaction. I feel fortunate to have her as my GP.

Warning to overweight or obese patients. Dr Yam has a fat bias which will affect how she medically treats you. My former physician's fat bias led to her prescribe a dangerous weight loss medication for me even when I had no problems caused by my obesity. The resulting rapid weight loss and regain led to my developing a fatty liver and an eating disorder. Dr. Yam also has a fat bias which leads her to ignore the issue you are going to see her for and prescribe weight loss diet treatment, which is the LAST thing a physician should do if a patient has an eating disorder. If you are overweight or obese, find a doctor who doesn't have a fat bias. They are hard to find, but less likely to have a negative impact on your health.

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.
