Dr Yau not only took his time to explain everything, he did it efficiently and effectively. I did not feel rushed. He was conscious of my time and did not keep me waiting for hours to be seen either. Extremely well oiled machine running there in Sleep department!! Maybe they should train the rest of the departments to learn these customs.

This visit was much more pleasant than my previous visit. I felt that Dr. Yau was more attentive and was willing to spend more time with me this visit. My last visit, he seemed very impatient and seemed as though he needed to leave quickly. This visit, he was willing to sit and visit with me, asking questions and answering my questions. Thank you.

He makes me feel at ease & confident that I\'m in good hands & I feel I can trust his pic he sets for me. His explanations and replies to my questions shows me he not only is a good doctor, but he cares about me as well.
