Biography & Education

Biography

In her practice as a family medicine physician, Yen Vo, M.D., believes her most important role is to be an educator for her patients. "Patients need the right tools to make healthy decisions. I want my patients to know I'm their partner and that our common goal is to keep them healthy," said Dr. Vo.

Dr. Vo chose to become a family medicine physician so she could form personal relationships with her patients. "I'd like to help treat the whole patient, not just their diseases or conditions," she says.

After receiving her medical degree from the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Aurora, Colo., Dr. Vo completed her internship and residency at McLaren Family Practice in Flint, Mich. Dr. Vo is board certified in family medicine.

In her free time, Dr. Vo enjoys being outdoors, trying new, delicious foods, gardening and cross-stitching.

About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

Dr. Vo said to call if condition changed or worsened, however she did not return my calls. my husband, who has a release on file, called to advocate for me and was told that Dr. Vo does not return calls to clients. She referred me to a specialist that requires an MRI first, however this is not done or scheduled so I am stuck with health insurance, but not proper health care. i went to the ER due to the lack of communication from Dr. Vo and was unable to get an MRI, however I was provided prescriptions incliding a sterood that may help reduce the inflammation and give me the feeling back in my legs. i am beyond frustrated and dishearyed by Dr. Vo's treatment of me. the ER provided better care and excercised empathy, which dr. vo seems to lack.

My doctor is great, but all she did was listen to my lungs and heart and take my blood pressure. She asked questions but only saw her for few minutes just to get my prescription renewed.

02/08/2017
I was a patient of Dr. [...], I was happy to have him as my doctor because I appreciated being encouraged as a person with feelings. He truly cared about my health and I want a dr. who can be sincere in my care but he move to another office. Unfortunately Dr. Vo seemed disconnected with the provider/patient relationship that I now is out of there. "Textbook" which I am not certain I will continue with her, I'll give her another chance.

I love this office - everyone from the receptionist who commiserated with me about having too many cards in my purse to [...] who takes my blood pressure. They are always efficient, thorough, and nice.

Great provider experience but the Hillsboro office is a dump. It felt dirty and outdated. I will be changing to a different location to a nicer building ! I work in the medical field and exspect a clean updated medical phacility .

This was not a bad experience. But the power went out during my visit and we were unable to complete it.

Dr. VO has consistently taken charge of my health needs, has been proactive in making suggestions to update my immunizations, concern about my cholesterol levels, reappeared while I was in the lab to give me printed instructions for the care of my eyes ([...]) and a referral to [...]. She also notified them regarding the referral which made it very easy to make my eye appointment. I am very well pleased to have found her and to be in her care.

I've already recommended Dr. Vo to a friend. That friend has started seeing Dr. Vo and is very pleased with her.

09/06/2016
The office staff were very understanding about my daughters autism and specifically told me that her incessant whining was no problem and that they didn't mind her being in the waiting room. This was a very nice change of pace because normally we have to have someone wait outside with her and then when she is called to go back we bring here in from outside so that she doesn't disrupt or disturb other patients or staff.

08/31/2016
I didn't appreciate the provider acting as if I didn't know my own body. she didn't listen to me when I told her my concerns. she told me that I had bad genes. it was rude and insensitivity and a lack of professionalism.

I am [...]'s daughter and also a patient of Dr. Vo. Today we experienced a true indication of the quality of care and compassion we have with Dr. Vo. Mom has Alzheimer's and is in a a memory care facility and recently fell. I called this morning....and we were able to have an appt. for later this morning. Mom was in pain, and in a wheel chair. We suspected a hip or knee fracture. When we arrived at the clinic I went into the facility to request assistance to bring mom in. The desk said yes...but to my surprise, out came Dr. Vo who gave mom a quick exam while she was seated in the car,and said for us to go to the emergency room for x-rays. She said she didn't want to have mom get out of the car and come in for an exam because she was hurting....a doctor who came to us in the parking lot....talk about special!!!!! Mom did have a broken hip and is in the hospital tonight. Dr. Vo....is an exceptional physician!!!!

I love Dr. Vo she is so compashionate and never rushes me.

07/20/2016
I would have appreciated a little more explaination as to why she was conducting certain tests. [...] She was very professional and ordered all the appropriate tests to address each possible condition. However, now that I have all of my tests back, I have not been contacted to help plan where I should go from here.

07/17/2016
Dr. Vo was very attentive to my concerns and provided clear and helpful information.

This was my first time meeting with this nurse. I recently moved to this area and needed a primary. This visit was not what I expected. I came prepared to have blood drawn and labs, but she never asked or requested any. she quickly gave me a referral for PT for back pain but never offered to check any of my labs. This was not what I expected. I was told to come back as needed. no follow up required. Which means she is not even following me up for my labs and etc. I don't know if I will go back to this provider.

06/28/2016
she is accessible which is unlike other providers I might have chosen first. But I'm happy with her also.

I had a huge problem scheduling an appointment I would get put on hold for 45 mins and despite leaving my number no one would call back I had to call 7 times to get an appointment . people at the reception were very good, the doctor is very good. After the doctor walked out I realised I had not asked her one question and I requested the assistant if she could let me speak to the doc to clarify one thing and she said no the doc is busy i said am ok to wait but she said you can write your questions and they will answer it . Also she had recorded a wrong address for the pharmacy and when we asked her to change it she said you can do it by calling the pharmacy she was not at all helpful .

05/10/2016
She's the best.

05/10/2016
DR Vo is great. I wore shorts into my appointment and she noticed a bandage on my leg that I forgot to talk to her about (always wearing long pants). Because of her noticing the spot a referral was started.

05/08/2016
Dr Vo and the receptionists listen very well.

05/05/2016
Very good with general routine care, not as good with getting to the bottom of specific problems/concerns.

Dr. Vo is excellent: She really cares & listens. She made me feel better on a horrible day -

04/26/2016
I feel she wasnt very sensitive to my pain. I knew what i needed and have been through all the same conclusions already. I know what works for me and what doesnt.

04/19/2016
[...] I felt incredibly judged by this person who didn't know me, didn't know my history and yet wanted to tell me that I was doing something stupid. THEN after I had explained why I was seeing her [...] she overed to prescribe me anti-inflammatories, which I know is not something that would normally be prescribed to someone who is pregnant. Why judge me over 1 glass of wine a week, but offer to give me a prescription that I would take every day if she was concerned over the slim chance of pregnancy. Ridiculous. I will not be coming back, obviously.
100

04/17/2016
I love everyone at that office. I feel like I exist, and with other doctors, I haven't always felt that way.

04/14/2016
This is the first appointment I had with Dr. Vo [...]. I was impressed but it is too soon to be really impressed.
90

04/13/2016
I can tell this is a good provider but she is so good it's hard to make appt with her. Her schedule has been so full I am having to schedule 3-4 weeks out. It's not the best for availablity but I really like her as a provider.
100

04/06/2016
Dr Vo is an exceptionally fine Doctor.
60

03/26/2016
As a new patient it is very important to me that you have read my medical history. As asked I completed and turned in the medical forms regarding my history. However, the provider obviously hadn't taken the time to read them. [...] All of these initial bumps aside I found the provider to be warm and genuine.
70

03/22/2016
[...] Dr Vo went over all the medication I am taking. She explained about the long term effects of one of my meds - something NONE of my previous doctors had. She ordered the appropriate tests as well as blood work.

Dr. Vo listens well and checks my records.
