You are welcome to join the waitlist and explore this site as we gear up.
We make updates daily and look forward to caring for you soon.
Poor previous C3-4 fusion experience from another Dr I had enough miserable pain depression loss of work (7 months off )etc etc i was referred to Dr. Yam and within the first appointment we had a game plan to do acdf C5-6 and as a bonus he removed several bone spurs while he was in there. I was only off work for 60 days this time. I felt so good I was able to pick up my 5 year old daughter which I wasn’t able to do for over a year prior. I’m back to being able to go fishing and bike rides with her now . I can’t say enough good things David hands down is a life saver. Definitely gave me a new perspective on life
Can’t say enough good things about Dr. Yam. Two days after my disc replacement surgery and I’m off pain meds and already feeling much better. Dr. Yam explained everything clearly and is certainly an expert in the field of artificial disc replacement. Looking forward to a future without a squished up spinal cord! I was definitely scared going into this, but Dr. Yam and his staff made this an easy and fearless experience.
I had lost height, developed a poor posture, and suffered from increasing back pain. Dr. Yam replaced my lower 5 discs with synthetic discs and pinned and screwed it all together to repair the problem. He did a great job and though it takes awhile to get through the pain and rehab, I am so much better off now.
I don't think I could ever trust another doctor with care for my back. He is kind and compassionate. He listened to my concerns and explained the different options for care in a way that was easily understood. He even went as far as to contact my family in another part of the state to explain my procedure to them and calm their fears. He is amazing and his team is phenomenal as well. Thank you Dr. Yam for taking such great care of me.
I was so fortunate to find this doctor, I thank him everyday in my mind. My spine was so bad I could barely walk very far any longer. I'm 58 yr old female and it began with sciatica many years before. It took me 3 neurosurgeons and time but I looked at reviews and glad I did. What a Godsend he and Alexa are. God Bless you. My pain is gone and I can walk.
I am extremely pleased with Dr Yam and his staff and associates. I was informed of all procedures and choices before and during my surgery. NO infection at all. I am up walking right away. I have sent my friends and neighbors to him. So very glad I waited for Dr Yam. He has changed my adult life with his inovative procedures.
Dr. Yam and his staff are all I could have hoped for in a medical practitioner. you are looking for a doctor whose medical knowledge is encyclopedic, treats the whole person, and takes the time to be caring even while maintain a very efficient office, then Dr. Yam is someone you should consider visiting.
I was very impressed with Dr. Yam's great interpersonal interactions with not only me, but my wife as well. He came in and introduced himself asked me about my medical issues, conducted a series of simple tests, then went through the X-rays and pointed out the areas of concern and thoroughly explained what needed to be done to correct my issues. He put us right at ease. I will gladly recommend him to my family or friends who might need his services
My experience with Dr. Yam could not have been better. When I first saw him he explained in clear terms my treatment options. Once we decided on a procedure it was explained to me in great detail so I knew precisely what to expect. My operation was a complete success and I would recommend Dr. Yam to family, friends, and any one else whom might ask.
