Insurance listings are subject to change without prior notice. Please call your physician's office or your health or insurance plan to verify coverage information prior to scheduling your visit or procedure. Not all members participating in contracted networks have "in network" access. In network participation may change from time to time without prior notice. Independent providers (which could include, for example only, anesthesiologists, radiologists, pathologists, emergency medicine physicians, advance practice professionals, and other independent providers of health care services) may deliver part of your care, and such providers may be considered out-of-network on your health and insurance plans even if the Facility may be considered in network. If you desire additional information as to the providers who may be involved in providing your care, you can either ask your treating provider (who may know some of the specialists or groups who could be involved) or you can request a list of Facility-based physician groups by calling the following toll free number: (877) 810-0372. This list is updated annually and is subject to change without prior notice.

Dr. Yao did an EXCELLENT job explaining a difficult and complex issue to us during a New Patient Visit. We left the exam with all our questions answered and a clear understanding of our path forward. She has an admirable balance of obvious medical skills and extraordinary communication ability that exceeded our expectations for this visit. We are encouraged and look forward to working with Dr. Yao going forward. THANK YOU.

I was very impressed with the professionalism of Dr. Yao. When she entered the room, I felt an immediate calm because of her manner of introduction and the special interest demonstrated. This was my first visit with a neurologist and she answered all of my questions and concerns. She listened attentively and examined me thoroughly. My husband and I later commented on this fact. She was very clear as to her recommendations. I look forward to working with Dr. Yao.
