“I have been seeing Dr. Yang for about 2 months now for my issues with depression, anxiety, and ADD. I can honestly say that it’s been a life-changing experience for me. Dr. Yang is an amazing doctor and his expertise in this field is second to none. Dr. Yang prescribed a very comprehensive treatment for me including neuromodulation, acupuncture, and advanced nutrient therapy and in short 2 months, I feel better than I have in years. I have to emphasize the acupuncture that Dr. Yang performs. I have had these in many other places previously, but, the first time I had it done by Dr. Yang, I realized I’ve never had a real acupuncture before. The immediate results of the acupuncture have exceeded all my expectations, and I can say the same for my treatment and therapy overall. I am extremely grateful to have found Dr. Yang, who, I know, truly cares to see you do and feel better. And with Dr. Yang’s deep knowledge, experience, and patience, he will continue to tweak your therapy until you are, indeed, better. Hopeful and excited for my future. Thank you, Dr. Yang.”

“We are seeing Dr. Yang for two of our children. One child has anxiety and the other suffers from: auto-immune conditions (incl. PANDAS), Lyme, EBV, and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity.

Dr, Yang has the intelligence and expertise that we have been looking for. He understands all of our health issues and he truly understands the methylation cycle. Dr. Yang explained to us its impact on our children and how it is a contributing factor to the health issues we are experiencing. We are so grateful to have someone of Dr. Yang’s caliber as our doctor. He is resolving our medical issues.

Dr. Yang always gives us his time and attention. He listens to our observations and concerns and factors them in. His staff is equally attentive. I usually speak with Rebecca, and she has always been very helpful, pleasant, and efficient. There is a cohesiveness in the office, the staff works well together. The Yang Institute gives us the support we need to heal our children. ”
