About this Provider

Estin Yang, MD, MPH, is a general surgeon specializing in all areas of general and endoscopic surgery.  He became exposed to the field of medicine from the patient’s perspective as a teenager, being involved in his mother’s care as she recovered from surgery and chemotherapy.  Through these transformative experiences, Dr. Yang decided to pursue a career in medicine and serving others in need.

As a general surgeon, Dr. Yang strives to provide excellence in surgical care for the patients of Grants Pass.  This means mastering surgical technique for complex problems, staying current for surgical research and technological advances, and providing these services for his patients.  He studied Public Health in South Africa, and his research focused on the disparities of care for surgical patients according to social and economic factors.  He believes that rural patients should have access to top-notch surgical care.

As an educator, Dr. Yang believes that investing in education for trainees and patients is critical for health outcomes.  He trains and educates medical students and surgeons-in-training from OHSU, who rotate here in Grants Pass.  He also is involved with high school student job shadows, and strives for clear communication when educating his patients.  He believes that helping patients understand their health is a top priority.

As a member of the Grants Pass community, Dr. Yang serves as the Trauma Medical Co-Director of Asante Three Rivers Medical Center, focusing on systems-based care for Josephine County trauma patients.  He and his wife love living in Grants Pass, and are committed to investing back into their local community.  In their spare time, they enjoy travel, classical music, and most anything edible.

Not acknowledge Dr. Yangs team of consummate pro's would be borderline criminal. They, like Dr. Yang, are personable knowledgeable and med professional standouts. I would not hesitate to engage Dr Yang and team if the need for further surgical intervention arose. Thanks Doc!.

Asante is somewhat unique in the clinical world. An efficient, professional, quality med org staffed by high grade personnel, that puts a great deal of emphasis on the conduct of its providers towards patients. It pays off in my pov. Dr. Yang is a fine example, not only of a very skilled surgeon, but a personable communicator and attentive to the words and needs of his pts., medical professional. His attendant staff are equally spoken for above.
