Ratings for Dr. Kenneth Yuen
Disinterested and bored was the feeling I got from my appointment. Dr Yuen did not introduce himself or really look up from his paperwork. I was looking for a Dr that might put a little effort into sorting out how to manage my condition and it was abundantly clear he was not going to be the guy to do that. I suspect he is a very smart man but I felt he just didn't want to be bothered to put in any effort. He wasn't rude he was just didn't seem to really care about why I was there.
Very quiet man and sometime difficult to understand, but very knowledgeable. He has been treating me for 4 years and my quality of life improved drastically within the first year of treatment. He is 100% on top of everything, extremely punctual and his staff is great! Thanks Dr Yuen for giving me my life back!
Although Dr. Yuen was polite, I feel he didn't do enough to find out what is wrong with me. He sent me to a specialist, and the specialist had his assistant ask me a list of questions, which took about 20 minutes. Then the specialist asked the assistant my responses but the assistant got about 1/3 of the responses incorrect to what I had told him. It took about 15 minutes and when I told Dr. Yuen about this terribly disappointing experience, he just said that the specialist is a very busy man. I had learned that Dr. Yuen had studied under this very busy man. Later my Naturopath Dr. told me that she's had lots of patients who had shared similar horrible stories with her about the specialist. Dr. Yuen didn't seem to care.
Saw him twice. First diagnosis was incorrect. He is difficult to understand, very quiet. I'm hoping he knows more than he seems to, but I didn't leave the second appointment feeling any more convinced. Staff was ok. He is VERY punctual, makes sense when I wasn't in his office either time for more than 10 minutes. Felt VERY rushed.
He is a most compassionate man. Very thorough, asked me many questions, listened to me and kept on asking different things to see if he could come up with the right answer. He was not sure so right there and then sent me to another specialist who did know what my problem was. This he did on my very first visit and within an hour he had me sitting in the other specialist office. I cannot thank him enough as I now getting the treatment I needed. It is so unusual to find a Doctor to go the extra mile for a patient, especially one he just met. I just can't say how glad I went to see him.
