I have specialty training in colon cancer prevention and the management of patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease. In addition, I am actively involved in research in microscopic colitis as well as Clostridium difficile infection. I lead an active research team and am also involved in clinical trials for ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease. I pride myself on being readily accessible to accommodate the needs of my patients, and am involved in educating my peers as well as patients on the complex nature of IBD.

so grateful that Dr Yen was recommended to me. he spent so much time to andwer questions from me and my sister. I knew I was in good hands when I didn't suffer from White Coat syndrome! ;) I felt comforted and learned so much!
*Dr. yes is very well informed and looks our for my well being. He doesn't look at patient numbers/production - He truly cares about PT health - I'm so grateful for his help - I'm at a good place b/c of him!
Dr. Yen ALWAYS listens to my concerns. He gives practical advice to manage my issues and offers possible alternatives to my care. He wants updates from me in usually 6 weeks after we change something. He is very reassuring.
WITHOUT A DOUBT, THE BEST G.I. DOCTOR, EVER, PERIOD!
Dr. Yen is incredible! He always takes the time to explain things in a calm, understandable manner. I trust him 100% with my Ulcerative Colitis and would not go to anyone else.
First time visit. Looking for second opinion on my condition and treatment. The Fellow was very caring, listened, shared. Dr. Yen, I got the feeling that he read my information, before we talked so he knew a little about my condition, I got the feeling that he listened to my concerns about my medical treatment. He shared his professional sense of the what I could do to help me heal. I felt comfortable with his style and approach. I felt like he really cared about my wellbeing.
I have actually recommended this care provider to 3 of my friends.
*Dr. Yen listened, was reassuring & empathetic, efficient & kind.
Dr Yen was great. very impressed and I feel I am very fortunate to have him as a specialty physician
