As I mentioned earlier in this survey, Dr. Yang is so very courteous and always welcomes me warmly each time I make my appointments. He is attentive while also having a wonderful way of making me feel at ease. He has a good sense of humor which is lighthearted and easy; never sullen or impatient. He is the best!

My wife and sister first visited Dr. Yang, liked him immediately and recommended that I too make him my doctor. I have seen him twice and each visit was pleasurable but informative. Dr. Yang is personable and straightforward without sacrificing professionalism - something we are sorely lacking today.

Please do EVERYTHING within your power to keep Dr. Yang at Optum. He loves what he does, and it shows!! I will shed bitter tears if he ever leaves. He stays current in his field, he communicates well (despite me having ADHD), he's friendly and personable - he actually makes me look forward to doctor visits. His enthusiasm for good health inspires me to make changes in my own life to work towards better health. He's not just a doctor - he's my healthcare coach and trusted advocate. I trust and listen to him and when he suggested a screening procedure, I went - and it literally saved me from cancer!! He treats the support staff well too - they seem to love him as much as I do. If I need to wait longer for appointments so he can take vacations and good work/life balance, I WILL! Don't let him get burned out. Don't wait until another practice tries to lure him - give him that pay raise now or whatever else he asks for - he's worth it. I say this as an HR person. Please have retention conversations with him often. He is simply amazing and you need to keep him onboard. He will only continue to get better and better as he continues in his career. I promise you, there is NO substitute for enthusiasm. There just isn't. I would rather have a doctor like Dr. Yang that has enthusiasm, than someone else who has better credentials but isn't passionate about what they do. Dr. Yang is passionate about what he does. Keep him at Optum!!! I cannot say enough good things about him. Thanks for listening.

Dr. Wang was extremely professional and i did, indeed, like him. however it was very difficult to operate the face to face thing on the computer. Much of our talk was trying to fix the damn computer. The computer technology stinks for me but he was just fine!
