Ratings for Dr. David Yap
Last year, I was in emergency with sharp pain. My family dr sent me to emergency Burnaby hospital . I was offered pain killer pill and sent home. Lately I find out I had shingles. This year I had pain and throw up. Was really sick, went to emergency twice. Dr . Lam asked me why I go emergency. I told him my dr sent me in with a note. Hope hospital has equipment can find out what is wrong with me. Again I was sent home with gravel and pain killer pills. I end with emergency again had gall bladder operation.
This doctor is really not doing his job properly as a professional who cares for his patients. My wife has been coughing for a couple of weeks, so I had to take her to Burnaby Hospital Emergency. Dr Yap was the doctor on duty, he asked a few questions, ordered for a lung X-Ray, and after that told us that she was fine, no pneumonia no infection and sent us home with no prescription. But after that my wife had no improvement at all. Her family doctor just came back after 2 weeks holiday and surprisingly got a report from Burnaby Hospital X-Ray dept telling him that my wife actually has a swollen and infected respirator tract! What a lousy job that Dr. Yap did to his patient??? He could not even examine X-Ray properly, causing my wife's suffering to continue and extend unnecessarily??? I really think Burnaby Hospital should review his credentials and capacities as an emergency doctor, and take necessary action to correct this.
Every time I have to be seen in the ER I hope and pray Dr. Yap is the physician on staff. Whenever I've had to attend Burnaby Hospital's ER, Dr. Yap is the one and only doctor who has gone out of his way to get me feeling better. The rest of the staff at BGH could learn a thing or two from him.
Came in at 2:30 AM with intense abdominal pain to the emerg dept while in town. Excellent bedside manner and really portrayed a caring mannerism. Wish I had stayed in Burnaby to get follow up work instead of travelling home. Back home it took a month just to get a damn follow up with the local physicians!
Awesome ER doctor, I went into the emergency ward with an inflamed sore throat and this man disagnosed it pronto, set me up with some drugs to reduce the swelling and had me out of there feeling a lot better in less than 2 hrs. I would highly recommend this doctor.
