Ratings for Dr. Richard W. Yee
Dr. Yee did my cataract surgery in 2015. His incision was too large and the Crystalens fell into the eye. I had to have the Crystalens removed (it was attached on one side only) and a new lens inserted. I had to endure months of treatment for retina swelling, blurred vision, and ugly, bleeding in the white of my eye. As soon as it became evident that there was a problem with my surgery, Dr. Yee sent me to a retina specialist and never checked to see how I was doing. To add insult to injury, he made me pay $1500 for the Crystalens. Would NEVER recommend.
He is very careful and has a great bedside manner. When I had my Lasek procedure done, the next person in line was the grandson of an optomologist. It is a good sign when someone knowledgeable about eyes is sending a family member to him. I am very satisfied with Dr. Yee.
Dr. Yee is a jewel amoung physicians. He diagnosed my condition that caused symptoms that other opthamologists have said "That doesn't make sense." He really knows his stuff and is happy to answer your questions. I'm actually sending my mother who is considering vision correction surgery to him. He's that good. The only downside I can see some people having is that he is at a teaching clinic. Thus, there will be inexperienced medical students and residents that don't know how to use equipment come and practice examinations on you. Also, it makes your visit take a long time. However, they have to learn somehow and I'm thrilled that a physician as excellent as Dr. Yee is passing on his expertise to future doctors.
