I Just got referred to a new rheumatologist because of how terrible Dr. Yan's bedside manner is. He diagnosed me and is a very intelligent man, but he is constantly overbooked, and after 4 years with him on the same medication plan that was working for me, I was told I had to be RE-referred for a standard check up appointment that I've been getting every 6 months for years. His wait list is months long just like any other rheumatologist, and I had run out of my meds that help me live a normal life free of debilitating pain. My condition is not one that you ever grow out of or cure, therefore being kicked off his patient list makes absolutely no sense at all. He is very emotionless and short. Having said that, he is the only Doctor that could diagnose me after years of specialists so I will give him that. Overall, I would not recommend him to you due to my experience. His receptionist also forgot to fax MRI and X-ray requests multiple times and is extremely difficult to reach.

This doctor is paid to work for Wcb . His diagnosis was very incorrect!! He just told me I had something - that I actually didn't have . Reason was it easy to do a Wcb report for them . Plus how else would he get paid if he didn't make Wcb happy! So I went to a non- working Wcb Rhuematolgist and sure enough he actually did testing and found out what was wrong . Dr. Yan is rude / short / not helpful/ has no care in the world! Coldest heartless man for a doctor. So disappointed in is bedside manners and unprofessional... Doctors like him should be reviwed and monitored to make sure he does his job correctly and not making up lies for Wcb ... Sad !!!!!!!!!

He was awful and only fat shamed me....I was 20 lbs overweight, but had just given birth ! Brought in my husband from the waiting room to try to humiliate me in front of him as well. Saw another Dr who diagnosed me with a severe degenerative disease.

I believe Dr. Yan is the best in his field. Very knowledgeable. After 8 years, he has kept me waiting once. I can highly recommend him. You must have a referral to see him.

Thorough! Dr. Yan had actually read my file and new my history and reviewed ALL the tests before he even met with me. After 6 years, 2 GPs, another Rheumatologist, an internal medicine specialist, and 2 orthopedic surgeons, Dr. Yan finally figured out my diagnosis. It is such a relief to deal with someone who is respectful, thorough and interested in his field of medicine. He was compassionate and professional and I appreciated that he was straight forward.

I consider myself very fortunate that I was referred to Dr. Alex Yan. During my initial visit everything regarding my exam and treatment plan was explained to me then Dr. Yan brought in my husband to explain it to him and he asked him also if he had any questions or concerns. This was a Friday, that Sunday I was called by Dr. Yan to ensure that all was still well and that I did not have any questions /concerns regarding my new medications. My care has been second to none.

I was referred to Dr. Yan by my family doctor and have been seeing him for a year now. He is very thorough and helpful. When deciding on a treatment plan, he understood my hesitation and even referred me to one of his colleagues for additional ultrasounds to assess the damage that conventional x-rays did not reveal. It really showed the care and concern to get me on the correct treatment plan but also give me a better understanding to make an informed decision that was right for me. I would highly reccomend Dr. Yan for those with RA.
