Estin Yang was an exemplary surgeon, who was knowledgeable and professional in explaining his procedures to me, [service], and who sincerely cared. I had [service] that I attribute to his knowledge and skills as a surgeon. I have utmost confidence in him and his abilities. He is an absolute gentlemanand a skilled professional, whom I trust completely in his care and judgement. I also had a nurse named Tara, during my hospitalization of [date of service] in Grants Pass, who was also exemplary in her knowledge and care. Many times I saw her patient and compassionate with patients who I saw as challenging, but she remained caring and unflappable. Overall, I was quite impressed with the sincere and genuine care that I received.

Dr. Yang is an awesome person. He is very easy to get along with and explains plans well. Clarity in his communication towards me was very important to him. He put our relationship first. One evening while in the hospital, Dr. Yang came to see me. I was about to head out of the room on a walk. He immediately offered to walk with me while discussing my progress. I thought that was really cool.

Dr Yang
July 28, 2021
The respect and professionalism was endearing and welcoming. Even talking about bathroom issues wasn't as uncomfortable as you'd think. Dr Yang was very kind, respectful, professional, and caring. He's the only dr that has listened to me, treated me as a person, not just an income and thats been very hard for me to find. I did not feel rushed as I do with my primary amd 2 dermatologists. And was able to schedule me faster than the other departments. I wish he could be my primary dr, not just a specialist. He made me feel safe and secure in his office and didn't go off topic like others have before. Even though I hold no degree, he still listened to me thoughts and Gabe me information accordingly. I'm grateful for the visit as he made me feel less worried about why I was there. I had no anxiety during the visit, which I have almost constantly. I would recommend him to anyone for his specialty. I'm glad Asante has him, I feel he actually works for every cent he gets. 15/10. 10 stars.

Everyone who cared for me when I went to the ER on [DATE] for testing and gall bladder removal surgery the same day; treated me wonderfully. I was especially grateful that Dr Yang was kind and respectful as well as totally professional. (in the Past I had a truly mean and disrespectful surgeon for an emergency but all my apprehension quickly vanished the moment Dr Yang spoke to me). I wish I had the Name of the extraordinary male nurse? (I don't remember at all his job position or if he is part of Dr Yang's "team") that helped me prepare before surgery and was with me monitoring my readings when I awoke after surgery. He was Outstanding too and made me feel great about how well I was doing! It was a whirlwind episode for me and I was on strong pain relief making me "rummy" but he kept me in good spirits .
April 16, 2021
He really took the time to explain.

November 30, 2020
Dr. Yang listened to what I had to say. He defined my conditions in a way I could understand and went through the process that I would be given. During surgery he was always professional. We had pleasant conversation during my surgery and he again explained what was going on. After surgery his nursing assistant Renee applied bandages and discussed my post-surgery care. She was also very congenial and helpful.
November 27, 2020
The nurses and staff during my surgery were very kind and comforting. Lindsey was my main nurse and she was very good to me and my Mom. The nurse in the surgery room was very compassionate as when she realized I was scared and started to cry she reached out and patted my hand. That gave me so much comfort knowing she was there with me. That is the last thing I remember from the procedure, comfort and kindness.
