    How was your appointment with Dr. Yip?

    Jun 24, 2022
    Dr. Yip is a wonderful doctor and surgeon. I was very concerned about having the parathyroid surgery because I was concerned my voice would not be the same afterwards. Although the surgery was supposed to last for only 1.5 hours, it took her 3 hours because there was a lot of scaring and wrapping around my vocal cords. She took her time to do the surgery and although it has been 3 years, I will never forget how each time the nurses or persons attending me before the surgery would comment that I had the best surgeon, and I was in good hands. Today, I can sing and my voice is strong. I thank GOD that Dr. Yip was my surgeon. Thank you Dr. Yip for your attentive care!!! I would definitely recommend Dr. Yip!!!!
