  • Excellent Office With Excellent Staff
  • Dr. Yan looked like he was overwhelmed and showed no interest in my case. He did not show me my films or draw a schetch of what was wrong. He said that he could not promise a good outcome but did not explain why. He ordered a ankle brace. I had alreay tried 3 and a boot from the doctor that referred me to him. I was told by my previous provide that this would not helped to heal the tear. No doctor can predict the outcome of surgery but with his education, which is why I chose him, I don't understand why he would not operate. I figured it was not anything major and he was to busy. He could have at least explained why he would not.
  • Visit was extraordinarily long. I was only patient in the waiting room. X-rays happened 30-40 minutes later. Visit from assistant at about an hour. Saw doctor at 70 minutes for 3-5 minute encounter.
  • I have had exemplary care from UPMC and its forerunner, Presbyterian University Hospital, since 1974. Mild ankle pain and a subsequent X-ray ordered by my PCP resulted my seeing Dr. Yan. Without showing or explaining the X-rays he ordered, he pronounced my problem as "bone on bone" and recommended an ankle fusion or replacement. Since I was 82, had emphysema, calcification in the leg arteries and was not in severe pain, I believed that conservative treatment was the best approach at the time. Dr. Yan, almost reluctantly, ordered a custom-made ankle brace. I wore the brace for 6 weeks. The brace was forcing me to walk on the inside (medial) side of my ankle and forefoot rather than the normal weight distribution I had had prior to the brace. Concerned that this abnormal gait might cause problems with my forefoot in the future I saw Dr. Yan to evaluate the brace. I saw Dr. Yan to voice my concerns about the brace. He appeared completely disinterested in the abnormal weight distribution during walking and disassociated himself from the brace.
  • Dr. Yan was able to see me very last minute on a Friday afternoon without and appointment. The office staff got me in quickly and performed x-rays. I was in and out in a very reasonable amount of time and I felt like I was given very good care.
  • I really like Dr. Yan. He is very professional and knows orthopedics very well. He is also kind and caring.
  • I have seen different orthopedic doctors in the past but this was the first time they actually showed me my x-rays and explained the injury to me while showing me on the films as well. They took their time to make sure I understood everything and explained my injury using my actual ankle and mapping it out so I knew exactly what he was talking about. Dr Yan and his PA Diane were very kind and courteous. I will definitely be recommending them to friends and family. Thank you for your time
  • I found the doctor and his staff very attentive.
