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.

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.

[...] 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.

I had a horrible experience with this provider. Not only was she judgmental, but she took no time to listen or to explain the importance of my condition/things I could do to make improve my condition. [...] When she left the room, she did not give me a summary of what was discussed during our appointment, and when the medical assistant came in, I asked if I could see the doctor again so she could prescribe something for my pain. I waited for nearly 20 minutes before leaving, as the doctor never returned. I will never return to see this doctor again [...]

The time spent with the doctor was less than 10 minutes. When I spoke she didn't even look at me the whole time. This was supposed to be a routine wellness check and annual exam and there was no annual exam. She left the exam room saying she was going to order something (not sure what), and didn't come back in until her assistant came back in with paperwork and a phone number on a post-it note to call. The doctor did not give instructions or offer any sort of "follow-up" care. Since I am a new patient, they said I had to have a "new-patient visit" before having an annual exam. So apparently a 10 minute conversation with the doctor about my medical history (not even current medical concerns) is considered a "new-patient visit". I am so very disappointed [...]

Would not listen nor answer my questions on medication I was put on by my other doctor. Wanted to know what the medication was used for. Not how to say the names of the medication.

I felt that the doctor was in a bit of a rush and I wasn't able to ask a few questions because I didn't realize she was done. The nurse later told me to just email her through Mychart website.

this was my very first appt. to meet with a new doc as I have switched providers. the dr I saw was rude. initially had no idea why I was there. Dr.was bashing on my previous dr about medication that should not have been prescribed for me. she made me feel very uncomfortable to the point of wanting to walk out the door. She left me in the room and I was unsure if my appt. waseven over. Your provider should make you feel comfortable and respected. She did not give me this and I called right after to schedule a new Dr.
