“He is very experienced speaks directly to you and has a qualified staff. There were some small complications with the surgery but lesser than the list of complication he presented me before the surgery. He is such a great surgeon, I am lucky to have found him. John Hopkins intensive care was amazing and the hospital stay had great staff. The house keeping staff carefully cleaned every handle twice a day. I have no words to describe the great job that everyone does there.”

“Thanks to Dr. Yang my mother managed to escape cancer and is now enjoying her life. We came all the way from New England so that Dr. Yang will perform her lung cancer surgery. Dr. Yang has a long experience in surgery on seniors with cancer. After being told by several physicians that she was too old to have a surgery, we got in contact with Dr. Yang who performed a successful surgery. Not only that he is a talented surgeon but he is also a great person. I recommend him to anyone who faces lung or esophageal cancer.”
