Dr Yeh was recommended to me, he was very good. The experience with the hospital was not great - bit disorganised. Lost my notes and didn't give me much information.

Very accessible, patient and took the time to explain anything confusing. Reassured by several follow up calls and additional support suggestions for my condition.

Because of my condition I needed to see a specialist face to face ASAP. The earliest tel consultation on the NHS was months away, so was fortunate to find Dr Yeh who saw me within a few days and explained my condition and recommend treatment. Overall good
