Ratings for Dr. Charles Yam
I have been with Dr. Yam since I'm 19---and just recently turned 50! I feel so fortunate to have had the continuous rapport with this knowledgeable and conscientious doctor! He has always been punctual, professional, explains things well, and maintains exceptional records in his file. He has always shown warmth and exceptional 'bedside manner'. He takes the time to listen, follow-up, and to make sure you leave having all questions answered. I have nothing but great things to say about Dr. Yam...with my only worry is that he may retire! :-(
Charles has been my GP for 27 years and he and his staff have provided me with outstanding service. Previously I went to a clinic where I never knew which doctor was going to see me and since I have been with Charles I have rarely seen a locum. I have very complicated health problems and Charles and his staff make sure I get the attention I need. He knows the medical system really well and makes sure that before he refers me to a specialist all of the tests that are needed before referal are done so it doesn't take me more than 2 weeks to see a specialist. He maintains a detailed chart and knows any potential complications of multiple medicines and he makes sure I understand what a specialist might want to do. I don't feel his punctuality is a problem given the "extra" time he is willing to give his patients. I am really glad he is my GP.
I have been with Dr. Yam for over 20 years and he is very caring and helpful. There are times when I was super worry about my health conditions, he has explained in details and go extra steps to make sure everything got check out. He always finds solutions for my health concerns. I am so fortunate to have an excellent family doctor like Dr. Yam.
I have found Dr Yam to be 'Ok' but I have been disgusted with one of his receptionists. She has treated me with distainful contempt and on two occasions refused to make an appoint ment for me with Dr Yam. She has the ability to make patients feel like they are contemptible and certainly not clients or customers. She is an obscene waste of our health care tax dollars.
Dr. Yam has been my doctor for ~15 years now and has always answered my questions and kept detailed records of which he always follows up. He is very knowledgeable, insightful and maintains a friendly professional manner. It is a busy clinic, but he and his staff try to make themselves available in the most busiest of times by providing some appointments on the odd Saturday which me and my family thoroughly appreciate.
Having moved around a bit and having many GP's I have found Charles to be the best GP I have ever known. He is very knowledgeable about my health conditions and has been very effective in getting me through to specialists on a timely basis. He is very knowledgeable about how the medical system works and he has taken the time with me to explain this. His staff has been with him for a long time, know me by name and have demonstrated a high level of care. I am very happy that he is my GP.
