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.

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 is unfriendly, I left the LAST appointment with her feeling belittled. I will not be going back to her office. Her bedside manner is greatly lacking, she isn't pleasant and doesn't smile, she does not attempt to be encouraging...a little honey to go with all that vinegar would help the medicine go down much better. Kindness matters.

05/10/2017
The only issue I have is I did not get the MYCHART results until after the visit. I would have liked to seen them to talk about the results. Dr. Vo did talk about the results as a whole not specifics

Responded well to my request for a prescription.

02/14/2017
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.

02/09/2017
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.

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.

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.

09/01/2016
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!!!!
